Flash Lite Developer Challenge

Filed under: life — Tags: , — zproxy @ 9:47 am

The Flash Lite Developer Challenge was launched on 16 February 2009 and is the leading competition for developers working with Flash Lite.

The competition challenges three groups of developers:

  1. those currently working with Flash Lite
  2. Flash developers interested in developing applications for mobile devices
  3. mobile application developers interested in using Flash Lite.

You must be authorized to represent a registered legal entity to participate in this Competition on behalf of the legal entity in question (the Participant). Individual persons are not eligible to participate in the Competition.

I found this by Digital Back Country blog.


A full-fledged version of the Adobe Flash player is coming soon to a whole slew of smartphones.


MochiAds does not currently support Flash Lite, no ETA on if/when we’ll release support for it. It’s unfortunately not the same as regular Flash.

Where’s The Cash For Flash?

Filed under: life — Tags: , , — zproxy @ 6:57 am

Flash seems to be a gold mine and micro-transactions is the new trend!

Stream one involved micro-transactions. While Dino Run is free to play, a small donation gives gamers a code that enables them to customize their dinosaur, perhaps change his color or put a hat on him. Some gamers send a penny, others have sent as much as $100. “We let people decide what the game is worth to them,” comments Tilmann. Micro-transaction donations generated about $4,000, lifetime to date all told. – read more at Gamasutra.

Update: Already there are people talking about it.

LorenzGames has a cool post about ways of making money with flash.

YouTube has a document on how to possibly make money from video itself.
