Meter Down Application for Android: Developed using Flex Hero

Finally I got a chance to explore Adobe Flash Builder Burrito (Flex Hero SDK). It has support for developing Cross-platform Air application. Currently it is supporting Android only. Hope we will see all other Mobile, Tablets also covered in final version of Hero SDK.

To do experiment, I had decided to develop an application. I want to develop an application which can be useful to the user. After thinking for enough hours, I have decided to develop an application which will help user to get the Mumbai Auto and Taxi Fare for the meter reading. I heard from my relatives, freinds that they had been cheated by Auto and Taxi driver for fares.

Here it is Meter Down application for Android Mobile OS. In this current version, I have covered only Mumbai city. May be I will add more cities in future. I will really appreciate if you can share the meter card for Auto or Taxi from your city.

The current application is having feature of getting Regular as well as Night Fare for Auto and Taxi. The night fare will be calculated based on the mobile time. If it is between 12.00 AM to 5.00 AM, it will show night fare.

You can download APK of this application from here.

You can download Air Runtime APK (Runtime_Device_Froyo_20100826.apk) from here.

Note: Change the file extention of downloaded file to .apk before installing on your device.

I hope this will help you while you travel in MUMBAI by Auto / Taxi.

Adobe Air 2.5 now Available

Good news for the Air developers. Adobe has announced Adobe Air 2.5 availability at the Adobe MAX 2010. It has been announced that Air 2.5 will have multiple platform supports like Desktop, Mobiles, Tablets and TV.

Adobe has also mention that Blackberry Tablet will also has Flash Player 10.1 and will also support Air applications. Some of the major manufacturers of electronics devices like HTC, Samsung, RIM, Motorola, Acer will have pre-installed Air runtime in their devices in early 2011.

By mean of this, Developer can use their skills to develop multiple platform application, Which can be run on Desktops, Smart Phones, Tablets and also on TV. This sounds really cool to me. It would be fun to see your application running on multiple platform without doing much of changes.

I am so excited about this, I have already started developing applications for the android.
