When writing mobile applications over Flex 4.5.1, your application may be running in the background, even when pressing the back or home buttons on your device. This may become a problem if your application is doing things using timers, making server calls etc.
When developing mobile applications with Flex 4.5.1 you are always going to have a short time until the application loads.
It is very recommended to add a splash screen to your application to ease the wait and improve the User Experience.
This coming Thursday, Nov. 25th, I will host the monthly Flex group meeting.
We will cover some of the new stuff in Flex 4.5 SDK (codename HERO) and FlashBuilder (codename Burrito), as well as showcase some basic concepts of mobile development using the new pre-release of Adobe AIR 2.5 for Android OS.
If you are in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by, it’s an open event.
Venue is Tikal Knowledge • 4 Habarzel St. • Ramat Hahayal • Tel Aviv
