b.Tween Bridges Gap Between Adobe and Apple

Posted by Sravan | July 3, 2008 .

Adobe Flash Player is not yet on Apple iPhone. But Flash Lite apps can now be ported to iPhone or iPod Touch.

Thomas Joos
from Boulevart and Emanuele Cipolloni from Barefootsoft have successfully ported a Flash Lite project, the “Rock Werchter Mobile Guide”, to the iPhone taking advantage of all the oppurtunities the iphone UI has to offer.

Below is the cool video demo of the final result.

They used b.Tween, which in turn uses eyeGT, for porting the app. eyeGT, or Enhance Your Experience Graphical Toolkit, is a highly efficient graphic renderer, capable of handling vector graphics and bitmaps. b.Tween is an eyeGT framework that can be used to easily convert actionscript based applications into native ones with minimal changes.

Emanuele clarifies that “it is NOT a Flash Player (Lite or otherwise), but rather a set of tools that extract, rework, and optimize the Flash application, turning it into a fully native and compilable Objective-C/C++ application that doesn’t require any runtime, thus complying with the iPhone SDK requirements. b.Tween outputs native applications which have the added benefit of being able to access all the feature of the hosting platform like multi-touch screen, positioning sensors, GPS and so on.”

Read this post where Thomas Joos tells us the complete story about the adventure, and this post for a detailed explanation about eyeGT and b.Tween.
