It is easy to get excited when game developers look outside the box and change up the way we think of mobile gaming. This newest title, Frisbee Rush is a fantastic example of how to bring the web and your phone together. With the controller app and Adobe AIR downloaded from Google Play, you control the game on your phone that takes place through your browser on the computer. (more…)
When Friday rolls around each week, we tend to see a bunch of app updates hit the Play store as teams finish up projects before heading into the weekend. This week is no exception, as new releases of Facebook, Tumblr, Adobe Flash and AIR, Total Commander, and Nova Launcher all showed up within the last 24 hours. Most of them were released to squash bugs, but with apps like Nova and Tumblr, we get some new goodies to talk about. (more…)
We know that further development of Flash for Android is dead, but that doesn’t mean they won’t continue to make the already existing app better and more secure for current users. Plus, they have told us that there will be an updated version for Ice Cream Sandwich available. Today, Adobe has just released an updated Adobe Flash complete with some more security fixings and patches. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus may not support Adobe Flash 11 or AIR yet, but it will at some point in December according to the latest blog post from the Flash team. We were informed a week ago that they would bring support by the end of the year to Flash, so this matches up to that report while also tossing in an Adobe AIR mention. After both of these apps are updated though, don’t expect to see many more. With development halted on mobile platforms, we’ll have to look to community developers to make versions available to newer devices.
Adobe has announced that Flash Player 11 and Adobe AIR 3 will be made available later tonight around 9PM Pacific or midnight for you east coasters. Both releases will eventually bring major improvements that will help to revolutionize the way we game and consume content across multiple mobile platforms. With this initial release though, we won’t see Stage3D, which is the major component to bringing hardware accelerated 2D and 3D graphics that can do upwards of 60 frames per second.
So for now, we’ll just have to look forward to these releases as stability and speed enhancers over 10.3 with the console-quality gaming to come at a later date. (more…)
Adobe surprised the heck out of the internet last night with their announcement of Flash Player 11 and AIR 3, along with Stage3D architecture. I think it’s pretty obvious that they are ready to take online gaming, video, and applications to the next level when these two drop in early October.
As you all know, the internet is a better place with Flash in it, so if this new version 11 can live up to even half of what this press release says, then we are in for some really incredible things. With Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 plus Stage3D, users will enjoy full hardware-accelerated rendering of 2D and 3D graphics at 1000x faster than version 10. We are talking console-quality, 60 frames per second domination on computers with mobile versions on the way.
Some of the gaming industry’s top dogs like Zynga, EA, and Ubisoft have already endorsed this latest release. So if Android users have continued to wonder still to this day why we aren’t seeing as many big time titles as iOS, then prepare yourselves, as this release is surely going to help remedy that situation.
Release is after the break, along with the video introduction of Stage3D by the Adobe crew. (more…)
