Flash Lite Indian travel guide on “Mysore Dasara”, made with SWF2Go

Few days back Vivek released an Indian travel guide on “Mysore Dasara” cultural festival. The application is built on top of Adobe Flash Lite 1.1 technology.

It will work on almost all Flash Lite enabled mobile devices, but it will give better experience on 240×320 resolution screens. On my Nokia E50, it looks great.

Vivek has also posted a video tour of this application on his blog. check it out as well.

For Symbian S60 devices, SWF2Go is used to make SIS installer and menu icon for this interactive travel guide.

Nice work Vivek, and keep it up.
