  1. Native List ANE for large scrolling lists

    Hi everyone!

    We are currently investigating the possibility of building a new ANE to handle large scrolling lists using native components.

    Large lists in AIR can be slow and problematic. the Feathers library has a very good implementation which works well, however it's not quite as fast as native lists and not everybody uses Starling & Feathers for their apps.

    As such we'd like to develop an ANE to let developers utilise native UI (such as the UITableView on iOS) to achieve the best performance for long lists of data.

    What we need from you is votes for this idea,…

  2. Steam support

    Login, friends, etc., basically the same set of functionalities Game Services ANE has. Recently steam has become a really potent platform for small indie devs, so I recon there's going to be a decent demand for such extension.

    Great to hear that there is a lot of interest in Steam!

    In order to get moving with this ANE we’d really appreciate your input on what you see as the important components of Steam for a first release. Key platforms and any important functionality.

    Also, we are considering adding this as another service into the Game Services ANE. Feel free to let us know if you have any thoughts on that.

    Cheers,
    distriqt

  3. Advanced Keyboard Options

    The AIR APIs don't really give you much control over the native keyboards (I'm particularly referring to iOS here). It'd be nice to be able to have some more control over the onscreen keyboard e.g. adding a decimal place to the numpad, or adding next/prev tab buttons and a done button above the keyboard.

    Hi,

    We are currently investigating what we can provide here. Intercepting the input from AIR can be troublesome however we may be able to provide some options.

    If anyone has any specific bugs or issues they need addressed, please drop a comment describing the situation.

    Cheers

  4. Mac OSX and Windows support for ANE WebView

    See https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1494000
    It would be very nice if the ANE WebView would also work on Mac OSX and Windows by supporting one of the most current webkit releases so that HTM5 websites are loaded correctly and DOM can be altered

  5. grouping markers in native maps

    is there any way to group markers? i have plenty of markers in an area but i'd like to group the ones that are close enough as i zoom out into a single marker and maybe with a different marker icon
    Can this be done somehow ?

    Also i'd like to know if there is a way to calculate the distance of a marker from my location. Ideally, calculate the distance not as a straight line but as a walking route between the two map points.Exactly as it is in the javascript google maps

    If it can't be done right…

  6. Flash StageText "The missing functionalities" (specially important in TextInput)

    Flash StageText has a few problems which are specially important when using the TextInput in starling. This could be resolved with an ANE, 1-The positioning, 2-The stageText does't resize when in multiline the text grows, 3- It does't return any measurements of the textSize inside the StageText. 4-It's impossible to skin the clear button (Even just to colorize it would be great!), 5- Resizing the clear button is also difficult

    More details about the positioning, point 1: Flash StageText finds difficult the positioning of itself when using Starling. When StageText is implemented as part of a Starling object its coordinates…

  7. Apple Watch support

    Are you checking out Apple Watch? Would be nice if AIR apps could read the Watch hardware, and to have the Watch app remotely control the AIR app.

  8. Mac OS X full screen ANE

    An ANE supporting a frequently used Mac OS X feature for turning windowed apps into full screen app (a new virtual desktop is created for such app). Here's my sample code for this, I don't have time to maintain it and would rather pay for it :)

  9. Chromecast ANE

    Not sure if its possible but would be awesome to be able to use chromecast through an air app. I have been able to do it by sharing it to Allcast, but integrated into an app would be better.

  10. Audio Processing Library

    Since AS3 is a little slow for processing things like Fast Fourier Transforms in real-time, it'd be great to have an ANE to modify Tempo, Pitch and Playback Rate of audio files. Open-source C++ libraries already exist http://www.surina.net/soundtouch/, so it just needs to be converted into a native extension, which distriqt already does so well!

    Another useful feature would be Pitch Detection, for music learning apps and instrument tuners.

  11. Implement startRecordingVideo() in CameraANE.

    The CameraUI provided in AIR is barely usable and the video very low quality, we need an alternative.

  12. Text to speech ANE

    Adobe AIR have a major disadvantage over native app is that it cannot utilize the VoiceOver feature in iOS.

    It will be great if there is an ANE which allow AIR to call the text to speech API to mimic the VoiceOver feature.

    We are currently in discussions with the team at fabric and discussing our best options in terms of providing a usable ANE here.

    There are some issues with the way the fabric (and hence Twitter) SDK is distributed that we are addressing.

    We will update as soon as we have more information.

  15. Native Media Player iOS Playlist Access

    An ANE which can access the native iOS media player including any playlists allowing for basic control (play, pause, skip track etc). I.e the ANE controls the built in media player rather then playing back locally specified files.

  18. Augmented Reality (AR) ANE

    Augmented Reality ANE - same as IN2AR - I think it utilizes OpenCV - it is an untapped marked for AIR because of the poor Stage3d/Video support - now with VideoTexture in production it will be a breeze to create responsive AR apps all we are missing is a solid performing and affordable AR ANE to do the image processing in native code.

  20. Camera Ane Update to add Move and Scale ability

    Adding the ability to specify whether the user can move/scale the selected image (or image taken with the camera) before confirming to use the image.

    Also possibly adding the ability to add an overlay bitmap to the camera viewfinder.
