FMS shared objects? There’s an app for that!

Oct 6, 2009 Author: Lisa Larson-Kelley | Filed under: Announcements, Flash Media Server, FMS Showcase

Stefan Richter, of flashcomguru.com fame, has made history by porting his Flash Media Server-based Fridge Magnet game to the iPhone. This was featured in yesterday’s keynote at MAX, but unfortunately too many people were on the wi-fi, so they weren’t able to show it on stage. But apparently it was immediately downloaded and played by numerous people (who proceeded, of course, to spell out naughty words!)

This is a groundbreaking moment — shared objects working on the iPhone. Who’d have predicted that?! So a big congrats to Stefan for being the first FMS-to-iPhone developer. Now go support him by downloading the app and giving it a go!

    The new Flash Player 10.1 features will include some iPhone-like features such as accelerometer support, multi-touch, gestures and screen orientation, but no announcement yet about iPhone support — only support for just about every other smartphone (including Palm OS — hurrah!)


    More tomorrow after the keynote.
    (No, I’m not there unfortunately, but watching the broadcast. So I’ll try to interpret the announcements as they relate to Flash video since I can’t scoop!)
