My Device: Playbook

Live camera + flash on top

Hi all,

 

   I'm just starting developing apps for the Playbook, but I've been creating AS2 and AS3 web pages and apps for a long time, so I hope it's not that difficult to take the next step and create tablet apps.

 

   The first thing I wanted to ask is simple: how can I go from a simple fla file to a full tablet app?

 

   And the second: the first thing that I have in mind isn't exactly an augmented reality app but I need to start the back camera and run a flash app on top. I've been searching for something alike in the forum and it looks like the camera API is not ready yet. Is there any way I can do what I have in mind?

 

   Thanks a lot.

The camera API doesn't work in the simulator but it will work on the PlayBook device. So you should be able to test on your desktop/laptop with webcam.

So basically the standard AS3 camera instructions will turn on the tablet's cam...

 

Great, thanks.
