Air Native Extensions

Welcome to the distriqt // air native extensions UserVoice site. This site is designed for you to leave feedback and suggestions on the native extensions, or even just to let us know how we are doing.

We are constantly looking for new extensions to develop so feel free to suggest ideas! We would love to know what you would like to see in our extensions, any enhancements or new extensions that we haven’t currently implemented.

Support

If you are looking for access to the extensions, documentation or dedicated support, all of that is now available through the dedicated air native extensions site:

Suggestions

(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. 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,

    • 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

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • Twitter ANE

            What?

            ANE that integrates with the official iOS SDK and makes use of the single sign on.

            Why?

            Improve the users experience. Improve the quality of Adobe Air apps.

              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.

              • Screen Recording

                I believe in lollipop and above, native screen recording can be done without requiring root. There are a few apps in the app store that can do this such as the link below. It would be good if we had an ANE that would allow recording of an air app so users could record game play or create video content of their application without the need to buy a third party app that leaves the experience disjointed. Note that diadraw (another ANE provider) currently provides this capability for iOS only so a good cross platform solution would be great.

                • iOS11: NFC / RFID Support

                  I know there is already an Android NFC suggestion, however with the imminent release of iOS11 - and the fact that FINALLY iOS11 will allow devices to interact with NFC cards/fobs/products:

                  Please can we have a n ANE that will allow iOS11 devices to read the UDID (or Serial Number/CSN) from RFID cards / fobs?

                  I can't believe it has taken Apple this long to open up the NFC area to developers - but it would be great as a start just to be able to READ the serial numbers off of NFC / RFID products.

                  Thanks

                        When using the Message ANE, you can add an attachment to the email. It would be nice if we could add a picture to the SMS message and make a MMS message

                                We are currently reviewing developing a GameController ANE to access the iOS GameController framework.

                                If you have any recommendations as to what test devices we should be using that would be greatly appreciated.

                                Or if you have any priorities with the development, feel free to let us know.

                                It would be nice to have access to the ambient light sensor so that we can adjust the app interface according to the outside light. It can be useful for navigation apps, where "night mode" with dark interface gives a better user experience in low light conditions.
