Flash gaming: Doing deals with Chris Hughes. Flash has one of the most remarkable stories in recent game technology.
As we've discussed over the last couple of days, it's survived acquisition, competition and the rise of mobile phones to deliver a thriving webgame community that's enjoying considerable financial reward. At the heart of this business is Flash Game License, a company which brokers a huge number of deals between indie developers and portals, small and large. We spoke at length to co-founder Chris Hughes about the mechanics of the Flash gaming scene, from what US players are worth, compared to European and Chinese, to what it takes to make a Flash game worth $50,000. Could you outline your business and how it's changed over the last few years? Create a mobile Facebook Flex application in Flash Builder 4.5 (Part 1) « Flex Doc Team. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been working on mobile Facebook apps with ActionScript and Flex to create tutorials that help developers understand the workflow and data structure of the Facebook platform.
In the next couple weeks, I’ll be posting several posts discussing different aspects of the Facebook/ActionScript/Flex/mobile platforms as well as a few new and exciting Facebook apps! For my first project, I took one of the Adobe Developer Center articles (Create your first Flex and Facebook application) and ported it to a mobile application.
The workflow and structure is relatively the same between mobile and desktop, although there are several changes that I will call out as they occur throughout this tutorial. This tutorial follows a slightly modified set of instructions, so please be aware of the subtle differences and explanations. Inside Adobe - Watch the Financial Analyst Meeting.

Newsstand is a feature of iOS 5 that handles newspaper and magazine subscriptions, downloading new issues in the background and displaying the cover of the latest issue.
