Subject RE: With ref to- Creation of mobile/tablet apps in Flex projects
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2013 08:53:05 GMT
FeathersUI has a lot of features missing compared to Flex although for basic
things its fine.

A while ago I rewrote an app from Flex to feathers to see what performance
gains I could get:

rair

It took me almost twice as long to rewrite the app in Feathers then using
Flex, that said it's probably because there was a learning curve with
feathers.

I wouldn't write off Flex for mobile. I think it does a great job. Keep the
display list minimal and it works like a great! On current devices (I was
testing on a nexus 4) the only difference between the starling and flex
verison I could really find was the app start up time

I dare say, everybody can choose what he wants and what he really needs. My
task was (mainly) to get data from webservice and show it. Good task for
Flex, Stage3D was not really relevant...
