Android Development with Flash

Android Development with FlashThis week my first book will be released, Android Development with Flash. I am pretty excited to see it in print and on the shelf in store. This book has a very interesting story behind it. Back in January of 2010 I had started writing a book for the CS5 iPhone Packager. Literally 2 days after I had sent the final edits back, Apple had mad the announcement that they where not going to allow the use of third party tools to develop applications. I was pretty disappointed for about a week, but then the AIR Android pre-release was made available, and I began rewriting the book for Android. I spent the next 2 months feverishly tweaking and adding features to the book. Fast forward to September and a few weeks before it is set to be released, Apple removes the restriction on third party applications, and it looks like the original iPhone version will be released as well hopefully by the end of the year. I have to say that working with everyone at Wiley was amazing to work with. I was really nervous about writing my first book and everyone there helped me a great deal getting through it. It was a really great experience and I would recommend working with Wiley to anyone.

Here are some links to where you can buy it.

    Wiley might have a PDF version available next week. It usually takes a couple of weeks for stores to get it once it has been released. I’ll update once I find out.

    Looks like an informative read for sure, I’m buying it, but was curious if there are any promo codes that might discount it? If not, no worries, it’s reasonably priced. Have a good one and I look forward to reading it.

    Does you book cover how to deliver remote flash content?

    I have built an android app that pulls in data that will ultimately lead to a user selecting a recording and streaming it. The recordings are transcoded to flash on the fly. I am having trouble getting these videos to play. Target is android 2.2 with flash 10.1.

    If your book does not cover this, are you aware of any resources I might be able to use to accomplish this?

    @derek – I don’t have any promo codes unfortunately.

    @daniel – No the book doesn’t really cover streaming video. Although from what I have been told you should be able to connect to a FMS server and stream your content.

    Hey man, I ordered your book on Amazon yesterday, and it wasn’t until today I realised it was by you! Should be a feather in your cap that I ordered it based on merit and not simply because I knew the guy who wrote it (not that my endorsement counts for anything in the world market, mind you…).

    Congratulations on your book, and rock on Thunder Bay,

    I purchased both your iOS and Android Development books. Great stuff! I was wondering if there was an easy way to change the direction of the scrolling text field that you gave an example of. What I really want to do is scroll up to move text down, and vice versa.

    If you can shed some light in an email I’d appreciate it. Thanks for all the help and keep up the good work.

    I have your iOS Flash Development book but I am encountering problems as the examples you have do not seem to work (esp. Connecting to a database etc.). I’m using Flash CS 5.5 – could that be the problem?

    Even just running the code sample that I have downloaded from Wiley doesn’t work. Any light on this will be really appreciated.
