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.

  1. Native MP3 encoder

    We have (and I think many other) voice recording and keeping files into application. Raw voice files are just to big and encoding in AS3 is just too slow, just like an image encoding. There should be lame mp3 encoder similar to image encoding.

  2. 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.

  3. Don't let Parse ANE die

    Althow Parse is almost over, there's a few Parse Server services available like https://www.nodechef.com/parse-server
    Maybe just making the Parse ANE able to point to a different server will bring us joy again! ;-)

    Hi,

    We have created a new build based off a custom implementation that will be able to talk to custom Parse server installs.

    Hopefully this change will be all that’s required to continue using Parse in your AIR applications!

    Cheers

  4. create a ANE for the low latency Sound on Android

    Adobe AIR Sound implementation on Android suffers horrible lag problems 400-600+ms, . It works OK when a first sound is played , but if there are subsequent sounds following it, they all have a terrible lag. (Imagine virtual piano application..)

    There are now some free low sound latency java libraries available with SDK, so writting this extension for an experienced developers such as yourselves shouldn't be a big issue!

    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

  8. A MIDI ANE that allows access to and use of the standard General MIDI instruments and ability to play MIDI files

    MIDI is a well entrenched standard for music and other uses. The ability to create and playback MIDI files with General MIDI instruments would be great for music in games, music apps etc. without having to package in wav/mp3 files or build synths.

  9. WatchDog for Android ANE

    My app (some navigation application) can run in backround on Android devices. But some Samsung devices can force shutdown my application (even when free ram memory is enough).

    I need some additional service, that check status of my app (by id) and can restart my activity process if needed.

  10. Rescan Media

    Some Android Tablets won't allow for us to open a file because the system needs to scan the file/folder. For example, if I download a new APK it may popup with a PARSE ERROR when I try to install the new APK (I have a separate ANE that will open any file on Android with the default application).

    Rescan(f:File, callback); would be all that is necessary IMO.

    It would be imporant to include the default configuration so it will fail safe for iOS/Windows/OSX.

  11. Add new AD platforms (TapJoy and ChartBoost)

    I use popular AD platforms for my AIR game. But they have deprecated support of AIR in their SDKs.

    Tapjoy dont' support AIR platform since last month https://dev.tapjoy.com/sdk-integration/air/

    The same situation with ChartBoost SDK since last year https://answers.chartboost.com/en-us/child_article/adobe-air-plugin .

    May be you can support their SDKs for AIR platform?

  12. Lottie ANE

    It would be great if we could have an ANE (if possible) to integrate the Lottie Library. It is an awesome way to add animations to apps.

  18. IBM Watson/Bluemix APIs

    The IBM Watson APIs and Bluemix APIs are too numerous to list, but, are becoming VERY popular, judging from the 20,000+ attendees of the Watson conference last month. Contact me if you want to discuss.
