(cc-ing George Yabra who donated this project.  George, I am not sure if
you are subscribed to this list)

Aaron, great job!  The new menu interaction looks good.   Here are a few

1.  Would be nice to have a splash screen with the 'powered by Apache Flex'
2.  Loading the Apache Flex blog in the home screen is probably not
required.  Also, the formatting does not look right.  Anyways, we already
have an example (HttpService) that loads the Apache Flex blog.
3.  Instead, we could have a small description of what the TourDeFlex app
is about, where the source code can be downloaded, etc.
4.  Would nice to have all the components center aligned.
5.  CalloutButton:
     5.1 Would be nice to have a list of options that allows the user to
show the various settings (direction, etc.)
     5.2 Would be nice to show a couple of other callouts with other
components in them (spinner, checkboxes, etc.)
6.  MobileGrid:
     6.1  Would be nice to skin it along the same lines as the other
components.  The dark theme looks out of place
     6.2  Perhaps add a couple of custom itemrenderers as well?
7.  Layouts:
     7.1  I think it would be better if we started out with a few elements
right away, instead of expecting the user to click the "+" button.  It is
not very obvious.  Plus, we can show the 'info' button like we do for the
other components.
     7.2  We should use the same size graphics.  Random sized graphic seems
jarring, especially when they are really small.
     7.3  Looks like a bug with TileLayout when more elements are added
after filling the screen.  This can be ignored if we pre-populate the
layout/viewnavigator with elements upfront
     7.4  In my experience, using a List with the respective layouts make
for a better experience.  Can we switch all our layout examples to Lists?
     7.5  The animations feel a slow because of the duration.  We should
reduce the duration and make it snappier.
8.  Geolocation
     8.1 Can we use the MapQuest Flex Mobile component to show the user's
current location?  I have used this component in a project and it works
quite well.  [1]
     8.2 We can optionally use the Google Maps javascript api and load it
using StageWebView.  That could double up as an example of showing HTML in
Apache Flex apps

Again, thanks for taking this up.  All the things in the above list are
optional and feel free to implement only those that you have time for.  I
hope the Apache Flex community can chip in and help out here.
