Adobe Mobile Packager and Symbian Open Signed Online
Back To Top
If you were using the Adobe Mobile Packager to create the SIS file for your mobile applications, you probably noticed that the beta program has ended and the program has been cancelled. According to Adobe, "The Distributable Player Solution beta has ended and the program has been cancelled. The solution is no longer available and will not be brought into production." They do offer alternatives, so click here to read more about these.

Unfortunately, one of the issues that this causes with the SIS files (self-signed ones) that you have already created is the certificate that the Adobe Mobile Packager embedded into the SIS file has expired, and your mobile applications will no longer be able to be installed on new test devices. Of note, the mobile applications that were already installed on your test devices (prior to the certificate expiration) continue to work, so this only affects new installs of your mobile applications created with the Adobe Mobile Packager.

The good news is that Symbian has a nice web application that can, in effect, re-brand your existing Adobe Mobile Packager-created SIS files with a current certificate. This allows your SIS files to be installed as new mobile applications on your test devices. The Open Signed Online (BETA) Service is just what the doctor ordered to cure this particular ailment. The service is free and works very nicely. Be sure to follow the instructions, carefully, and in just a few minutes your expired SIS files will come back to life. :-)

Chemistry 101 Flash Lite 3.1 Mobile App
Back To Top
Following the interest shown for my Chemistry 101 AIR application, I created a mobile version (for Nokia phones running S60 3rd Edition software). Combining the Flash Lite 3.1 Distributable Player, the Adobe Mobile Packager 1.1, the Flash Lite 3.1 update for Adobe Device Central CS4, Flash CS4, a bit of Perl and the Symbian SDK, and you have an easy way to create a mobile application. I created my sixth mobile app (see screen captures, below) in a short amount of time and deployed it to my two Nokia phones - a N81 and a N95 - via a bluetooth connection.

The workflow I used to create the mobile application is shown below:

Two fun, new Flash Lite 3.1 mobile applications
Back To Top
Although quite early to use it for Christmas 2010, my "Days Until Xmas" AIR application, has a new sibling mobile version (for Nokia phones running S60 3rd Edition software). Additionally, as a big fan of the Chipmunks series of movies, I created a mobile version to showcase the movie "Alvin and the Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel", suitable for all ages, leveraging the wonderful work found on the http://www.munkyourself.com website. Combining the Flash Lite 3.1 Distributable Player, the Adobe Mobile Packager 1.1, the Flash Lite 3.1 update for Adobe Device Central CS4, Flash CS4, a bit of Perl and the Symbian SDK, and you have an easy way to create a mobile application. I created my fourth and fifth mobile apps (see screen captures, below) in a short amount of time and deployed it to my two Nokia phones - a N81 and a N95 - via a bluetooth connection. These apps are suitable for all ages, by the way.

The work-flow I used to create these two mobile applications is shown below:

Thanks, Adobe and Nokia - you gave me the tools to build. :-)
