Subject Re: Flex possible evolutions
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 17:21:50 GMT
A re-write of the framework that does not leverage the innovations in Flash
Player and AIR meant to enhance performance on devices (especially IOS
devices), will IMHO, be probably a waste of effort.
Interesting you mentioned education. I know of at least one company in the
education space, that has turned to native IOS apps (hugely expensive),
even though they have a huge code base of Flex and Flash based apps.
Main reason was unacceptable performance when using Flex apps converted to
AIR on IOS app.

A rewrite of Flex leveraging Stage3D, if that proves to be as good as
native apps performance-wise, I can see how such decisions could be
re-thought.
