Forum Nokia tutorials for Flash Lite

Forum Nokia published a series of Flash Lite tutorials with source codes: Music, LBS, RSS, Social Networking, Photostream, Event and Video.

"These tutorials provide working code for key aspects of Flash Lite integration with the latest S60 devices from Nokia. Each tutorial includes the Flash project, skinned swf files that can be run on an S60 5th Edition device and a tutorial guide document. Several of the tutorials illustrate the packaging of Flash Lite content into a WRT widget."

Display contact informations and locations in Google Maps with Flash Lite 3.1

I improved my eariler example which loads contact informations from users device - displays informations to scrollable list and shows contacts location in Google Maps (static image). In this new version a new Device Object is used to keep Flash Lite application in portrait mode all the time. Another great feature is to detect users device location with APIBridge. In this version of Contacts Demo both user location and contact's address location is shown at static Google Maps Image (user can adjust zoom level).

This Flash Lite example code article is published in Forum Nokia Wiki. You can found more informations and source codes there:

Creating Image Gallery with Flash Lite and APIBridge

In this my second Forum Nokia Wiki code example article I explain how to create a image gallery with Flash Lite and APIBridge. Technically first all the images data are loaded from device using the Media Management Service, then user can browse images just pressing next or prev buttons on the screen. Device object is used to keep Flash Lite application in landscape mode all the time.

APIBridge and Platform Services API provides great plug-ins for Flash Lite Developers, if you are not familiar with those, you should give some time to them.

Capturing and uploading image, video or audio files to server with Flash Lite and APIBridge

Finally I got time to write my first article in to forum nokia wiki. APIBridge has been there for a while for Flash Lite and JavaScript developers. In my first article I will demonstrate how to capture image, video or audio in Flash Lite 3.0 based devices and how to send those files to server side. This can be done with Flash Lite and ActionScript 2.0 in a few lines of code. You can find FLA and PHP source codes at the bottom of article page in forum nokia wiki.
