Would you mind going into detail about the nature of the app you were trying to build? More specifically, did it use a lot of vector graphics, were there a lot of objects being instantiated, how you went about bench-marking the performance of your app when run on an iOS devices etc…

The app I’m trying to build has game mechanics similar to the Doodle Jump game. I only would display items on the screen when needed and would use object pooling. It worked okay, but the frame rate just couldn’t get as smooth as the native apps.

I’ve been playing with objective-c and it’s so much smoother. I can do an alpha dissolve and it’s smooth as butter. With Flash it’s impossible. Super clunky.

Yeah, I spent 5 days trying to optimize my code to run better using some of those techniques with VERY little increase in performance. I’m using the latest AIR build. The performance wasn’t HORRIBLE , but it wasn’t even close to the performance of a native objective-c app, sadly. So, I’m learning Objective-C now. It’s challenging, but I’ll get there.


Actually, I have found some tips about increasing performance for AIR on iOS and Android. Also, after Air 2.7, the Air platform becames more faster on these system. Also, I have not strong programming language skill except as3 :D

My favorite of your badges is the one for helping protect against copyright violations! That’s cool.

Am I missing something? I don’t see a link for Ticksy anywhere. It sounds cool though.

I’m definitely excited about this. I’m curious what the limitions are for masking and filters.

I’ve recently been trying to make an iOS app using Flash CS5 .5. It was really easy to make, but the performance isn’t close to the performance of objective-c apps. I’ve seen some nice Flash iOS apps, but the game I’m making requires a lot of motion and fades and Flash just couldn’t perform.

I’ve just started learning Objective-C using iTunes U Stanford courses. It’s VERY different than Actionscript in a lot of ways, but I’ll get there eventually.

I’d like to have a cart that sells files for download. It would send the customer a unique link to download their file with a day limit on that link.

Is there anything on Themeforest with this sort of system in place? Basically a way to sell files, not physical goods.

Thank you, Ryan
