designcise, I would like to clarify some information Are AIR apps currently allowed for sale via Apple stores (for iOS and OSX )? Is there a viable market for paid Android AIR apps?
The timing of announcement adds to the confusion, since now Android is clearly overtaking iOS for dominant market position, things would be even more unified with ICS and power of recent ARM platform offerings is rather impressive.
As for content delivery and experience consistency, one of the points Adobe mentioned in their “farewell” notice is that Apple forced the ideology of delivering content via apps on their platform, and this way of consuming content will therefore be dominant in mobile segment.
I have serious concerns about this issue, as flash technology allows users to do precisely opposite – consume rich content via web and not being tied to specific apps and distribution channels. Furthermore, existing myriad of video/media sites based on flash for delivery are not going anywhere (yet?). HTML5 capabilities in this field are still not nearly as robust as flash.
By “easily porting same experience to desktop” do you mean that we will have same picture on desktop – separate Youtube app, separate Hulu app and whatnot? Windows 8 seems to be moving in that direction to an extent, and I can certainly see corporate interest in that, but what’s the point for end user, aside from massive inconveniences?
As far as I understand certain types of experiences on the internet are currently not possible and likely will not be possible to replicate without Flash, animation-heavy promo sites being one example. With Flash being absent from mobile platforms, are those types of experiences artificially locked to “desktop” segment, which is likely to shrink considerably in coming years (at least as far as typical casual user web browsing scenario is concerned)?
HTML5 +CSS3 combo is still lacking any robust authoring tools, it is not easy to deliver the same consistent experience across all platforms, and unfortunately it’s unlikely situation will improve much in years to come due to the nature of technologies itself, while Flash provided some solution to deliver experience cross-platform and neatly packaged.
As a production professional, I find myself lacking efficient tools to complete tasks at hand, starting from Prototyping stage – existing Adobe package seems to be obsolete and out of touch with today’s demands.
So, the big question is, what those changes mean to us as authors, and where do we move from now on?
So, apparently Adobe stopped developing Flash for mobile platforms, including (for some weird reason) Android. Does this mean the end of Flash for desktop as well? In my opinion, no one would bother developing a site driven by technology not accessible from a growing number of mobile internet devices (tablets, smartphones). Thus, we will hardly ever see Flash sites/elements anymore. Is this the case or am I misunderstanding something regarding Adobe plans for Flash?
I think ppi designations are pretty arbitrary nowadays. Just make sure your file is the right size (corresponding to your device screen, 1024×768 in case of iPad). To check if control elements you draw are the right size, you can use Maxivista or similar program.
I’d buy Envato mug, with marketplace credits if possible)
Please don’t use this feature if you don’t want to increase your support burden. Thank you!
As long as they keep that Metro thingy separate from “raw” Windows experience, all is right with the world. It honestly looks like a nice UI layer for touch interface (tablets, even phones), nothing more, nothing less. Their browser showcase with multitouch API is really impressive, too, looks like some other browsers have catching up to do, and IE won’t slow down the whole web industry anymore. I suppose they are targeting yet-to-be-announced niche of tablet computers with capabilities to turn into desktops – imagine hooking up (wireless) keyboard, mouse and display to your tablet (or even phone), switching to “raw” Windows mode – and you’re all set for a day of hard Envato work.
Do they release it with CC or Open License? Designers could use some of these…
Thanks for clearing that up! I’m still confused as for why those limits exist, though.
Nissim, I have a question, is it possible to have multiple Payoneer cards tied to a single account? Information that account had no limit on value (only card has limit) was not clear to me before, thanks for clarifying. Perhaps you should stress this more on your website, I always assumed total amount of money Payoneer can hold is 12500.
Therefore, I’d like to know if it possible to issue another card (or multiple) and tie to the same account, as a backup or for increasing daily withdrawal limit?
