Match Mee Treasure Room Update

Just thought I’d let you guys know that we released an update to Match Mee with a bundle of new features and bug fixes. The major addition was a treasure room allowing the player to see their collected Idols. It’s something people had been asking for so we were more than happy to oblige. From […]

How To Make Better Games

I don’t get out anywhere near enough these days, so my boss sent me off to the Edinburgh International Technology Festival. I must admit, there was a great mix of presentations over the two days, but it was the gaming related talks that I found of most interest, and I’d like to share some of […]

AIR for Android Books

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the AIR for Android pre-release but given my limited time I certainly haven’t been able to explore everything it has to offer. So it was extremely pleasing to find out that there will be a few books on the subject coming out at the end of this year. O’Reilly will be […]

Will mobile limit future Flash features?

Okay this is a slightly controversial post but it’s something that’s been nagging at me for a good few months now so I thought I’d put it out there and see what people think. Will Adobe’s mobile vision for Flash restrict future features? “Why would it?” you might ask. Well the whole point of Flash […]

iPad v Flash

So here it is: Apple’s latest technical marvel. No wait a minute, that’s not it! Ah here it is. Sorry my mistake, but it’s an easy one to make I suppose. After all both are quite large, touch-sensitive, and extremely shiny. Any other similarities? Oh yeah, and neither support Flash, although at least the Monolith’s […]

Will HTML5 kill Flash?

Video-centric social networking site Vimeo has also followed suit with its own HTML5 video player beta. To be honest, until recently I’d been fairly dismissive of HTML5’s chances of ousting […]

My Nokia has gone through an 80s time warp!

Just for fun I decided to port my audio cassette music player to mobile. A really strange thing happened though when I actually got it onto my Nokia 5800. As soon as I saw it on the phone’s screen a long forgotten memory from my childhood came back to me of something I hadn’t thought about […]

Some more handsets running Flash Player 10.1

We’ve seen Flash Player 10.1 running on the Google Nexus and now Adobe have released some more videos showing Flash on a few more handsets. First up is another Android phone – the Motorola Droid. Again performance looks pretty good and Adobe have also chosen to demonstrate Flash running on a few different websites, including […]

Adobe’s Mobile Strategy Fundamentally Flawed?

Well it is if you believe what Aral Balkan had to say recently. His post sparked some intense and much welcomed debate within the community regarding Adobe’s mobile strategy. In particular both Scott Janousek and Mark Doherty posted excellent responses and I think all three posts are definitely worth a read. Flash Lite in particular […]
