I'm I have a flash game I would like to port over to the PlayBook. I was wondering where would be a good place to start? Any tutorials I can follow or documentation I can use as a guide?

I am pretty sure you are just able to compile a SWF file into a BAR file as long as you have the proper XML files as well. Just take a look at the Tablet OS SDK. Otherwise you can import your SWF file into Flash Builder (if you plan to use that IDE) and work from there.

I'm curious though, say I were to create an app or game in Flash and assign the the up, down, left, right movement function to an object in the game, say a sphere. When I port the game/app over to a bar file and run it on the PlayBook will the touch screen recognize the up, down, left, right function when I move my finger over the object on the touch-screen?

Tough to say as touch controls aren't working 100% (if all) in the simulator right now. I would assume so though....

@jffurlan Why would you assume so? I would assume it would not pickup on the arrow key movements. Isn't Touch more or less equivalent to using a Mouse? I would expect that all applications would require the mouse events to be handled.

Unless you are going for a free PlayBook, you could leave it as a Flash game and run it using the web browser. Only minimal conversion required.
