SWF2Go reviewed by FlashMagazine!

Jens C Brynildsen has published a nice review of SWF2Go Professional. He discusses how a total newbie to mobile development can start using Flash Lite with SWF2Go.

SWF2Go is a really niche product that proves the size and variety of the Flash Platform. It’s software that will let you make signed SIS installers that makes distributing your Flash Lite applications for Nokia phones really easy.

Thanks Jens for your nice words :)

SWF2Go Turns 1 Year Old!

Swf2go_logoI almost forgot it. 12, March 2007, the day we published first version of SWF2Go Professional.

Its one year now!

Its been a great year for Flash Lite developers as well as SWF2Go. We have been watching great success stories from users who have been using SWF2Go for their Flash Lite games and applications.

SWF2Go 1.5 also added support for Flash Lite 3.0, as well as Symbian Signed certification. There are now great Flash Lite applications available via Nokia Download! service as well as on other networks. Which is all good. We wish to see many more soon.

Here, I am excited to let everyone know that we are working on next major update of SWF2Go Professional. It will introduce many cool new features and ability to extend Flash Lite capabilities ;)

On behalf of Orison Team, I’d to thank all the great customers who have been using SWF2Go, and their support for continued development of SWF2Go.

A small gift: Use the coupon code “BUNNY” on SWF2Go checkout page to get 15% discount. This offer will expire after one week. So, grab your copy now!

swf2go_1_5_distribute 

During the beta testing, SWF2Go 1.5 built SIS files were successfully passed the regular Symbian Signed testing. Recently we have got confirmation from one of our client that he have successfully signed about 10 SWF2Go made SIS files through new Symbian Signed Express.

I’m really proud that there are now many SWF2Go made commercial Flash Lite based applications out there. For example,

There are many more, I’m going to make a proper list of all the applications made with SWF2Go publicly available on Internet and post it on SWF2Go website soon.

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.

Symbian Signed Express best for Flash Lite

The new addition to Symbian Signed process family is Express Signing. It will be a quickest route to get your applications Symbian Signed.

There are some other changes as well, which you can read at the source.

I also noticed, there’s no mention of Self Signing, and I think Express Signing will replace Self Sign. it’s replaced with good alternate, as developers don’t have to instruct users to lower security settings on their mobile phone, and there will be no security warning message when installing the application.

The best thing about Express Signing is its low cost. That’s true, it will cost approximately 1/Nth of current test house signing cost.

I liked the whole idea, and I’m sure now more Flash Lite developers will get their applications signed. And if you didn’t checked the news, SWF2Go v1.5 is Symbian Signed compatible ;)

Express Signing will have following features:

— Publisher ID (only from TC Trustcenter) required. 

— No IMEI restrictions on the signed SIS file

— Applications are required to comply with Symbian Signed Test Criteria, however they are signed immediately via www.symbiansigned.com 

— Applications are batch tested (1:N) by Test Houses as an audit (i.e. sometime after the signing event)

— Audit results will be published.

— Low cost (approx 1/Nth of current test house signing cost)

— Available for all PlatSec Capabilities; except COMMDD, MULTIMEDIADD, NETWORKCONTROL, DISKADMIN, DRM, ALLFILES, TCB

— Will be virus scanned

— NO Warning/Notification prompt when installed on device.

The new changes are expected to be available early in November.

There are couple of quick start presentations, and I highly recommend them if you’re new to Symbian Signed.

  2. Symbian Signed for Flash presentation
