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:

  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,
    distriqt

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Integrate the official HockeyApp SDK into an ANE

    HockeyApp (http://hockeyapp.net/features/ by Microsoft) SDK Integration, now that Testflight is iOS only.

  7. Background download support

    The goal here is to initiate a long running http download. From AS3 you will be able
    to request that a URL be downloaded to a particular destination file and the ANE will
    perform the download in the background.

    This will utilise the system download managers which may present a UI to the user
    on particular OS versions.

    iOS:
    - use a NSURLSessionDownloadTask to download in the background
    - Will work in the background and foreground but not if the application
    is terminated (due to an AIR limitation of launching into the
    background)
    - Extension will handle all application delegate…

  8. Buy Source Code

    What if you want to get the source code for one of the ANEs you are selling?

    I want to get it to modify and add more support to it.

  10. Add the option to attach images to SMS Message (MMS)

    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

  12. MediaPlayer - background color

    It would be great if we could set the frame color that flicker before the video starts (currently it is black)

  13. Ambient light sensor

    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.

    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.

    Regards,
    distriqt
