Taken with my iphone4 and played with on the
ipad2 using Snapspeed. Rather artsy I know, but I like the potential. And being
so mobile, I love it. Only problem, seems I can't download from my ipad to
flickr, because I don't have adobe flash on the ipad. Comments welcome, cheers

With Flash Professional CS5.5, you can share assets
from your library across files. The Project panel also makes it easier to manage
multiple files that belong to the same project. View larger.
workflows for multi-target content
Simplify the creation and management of
multiple FLA files that are created for a single project, but that target
multiple devices. Share code and assets across documents and device targets to
efficiently create, test, package, and deploy content for a wide range of
screens and devices. For example, symbols modified in one document update across
The New Project dialog box has been enhanced to include a
Default Document section, which allows you to specify a document name, target
player, and ActionScript version.
Content scaling when resizing stage
By checking the Scale Content With Stage option, you
can easily resize artwork and timeline data to work at different sizes. View
One of the most time-consuming aspects of designing content that is
optimized for various screen sizes is scaling content to fit to every size.
Designers spend much of their time adjusting a single design to work at multiple
With Flash Professional CS5.5, you can choose to scale the contents of
your file when you change the size of the stage. Everything on the stage,
including symbols and motion paths across all scenes, are scaled. There are also
controls for limiting scaling to unlocked or visible layers.
Copying layers between documents makes it easy to move
content between different files in the same project. View larger.
Flash Professional CS5.5 gives you more control over the
contents of your document with the ability to do even more with layers. Copy and
paste layers--including ones with motion and inverse kinematics armatures--to a
different timeline or even to a different FLA document. You can also cut and
duplicate layers, and even copy and paste folders.
Complex vector artwork can take a toll on the processors of
mobile devices, degrading rendering performance. Flash Professional CS5.5 offers
two new options that allow you to easily export content as bitmaps, which help
enhance performance of your mobile content.
The Convert To Bitmap command
allows you to convert selected artwork on the stage to a bitmap. Once converted,
the artwork is no longer editable in Flash Professional, although you can edit
it in Adobe Photoshop software.
The Export As Bitmap command is a display
property that you can apply to movie clip symbols. With this setting enabled,
chosen symbols are rendered as bitmaps on stage when the project is published,
with the benefit that the symbol remains editable.
Flash Professional CS5.5 includes more than 20 new
code snippets, including ones for mobile and AIR application development. The
pick whip tool appears when you position your mouse over a movie clip
placeholder in the code. View larger.
Enhanced code snippets
Flash Professional CS5.5 brings several key enhancements to the Code
Snippets panel, offering quick and easy ways to add ActionScript 3.0 code to

snippet, and a pick whip appears. Drag the pick whip to a movie clip on the
stage to insert the instance name of your target movie clip into the code.
Use more than 20 new code snippets, including ones for creating mobile and
AIR applications, for accelerometer, multitouch gestures, and save/load data.
Upon selecting a snippet from the Code Snippets panel, you can view a
description or preview the underlying ActionScript code on a heads-up display
(HUD) before you apply it.
In addition, the code snippets themselves are
formatted to help novice and inexperienced programmers parse the code and apply
it quickly. Typographic formatting and rollovers indicate areas of editability.
Streamlined publishing and document settings
Save time with a newly
designed and more efficient Publish Settings dialog box, which you can now
access directly from the Properties panel. Select multiple formats on the left
and edit the corresponding settings on the right. New to the dialog box is the
ability to publish a SWC file to a path of your choice without having to publish
the SWF file. In addition, the dialog box now returns relative paths when
selecting a publish destination so that files can be more easily shared across
teams. You can also change the version of Flash Player, ActionScript version,
and stage size directly from the Properties panel.
The Document Settings
dialog box also features a new Auto Save feature, which automatically saves your
file at specified intervals, on a per-document basis.
The new Publish Settings dialog box puts many
important settings at your fingertips. View larger.

With this new release, Flash Professional continues to
offer a powerful interactive design toolset that allows for creative exploration
and implementation. You can now lock, or pin, bones to the stage, allowing you
to place restrictions on the movements of selected bones. In addition, you can
now create multiple spans or armatures on a single layer, and you can more
easily define more complex movement of armatures, such as walk cycles.
