FITC Mobile Beta Release!

with 27 comments

FITC Amsterdam

Finally I’ve finished the FITC Mobile Beta Version! For those who are new to this blog, I’m a student multimedia in Belgium (@hogeschool west-vlaanderen departement PIH. ) I thought it would be cool to take a closer look at flash lite and here we are. I’ve developed an official FITC Mobile Schedule and here is the beta version.

—– UPDATE —-
Windows Mobile User? HERE you can download a rar file containing the swf and the images. Symbian OS user? HERE you can download a sis file so you can install the app onto your device. (powered by SWF2GO)
Feel free to give it a try and please let me know what you think!

To test this application you’ll need a flash lite 2.0 enabled mobile device. I’ve tested it on a nokia n81 and n95 and it works great. I also tested on a nokia 5700 (less powerful device than N81 or N95) and on this device the application also performed very well. if you don’t have the flash lite player 2 installed you can download it at adobe labs ( flash lite 2 for windows mobile 5.0 is also compatible with windows mobile 6 )

HERE you can download a rar file containing the swf and the images. Transfer them to your device and make sure they are located in the same directory. Now you just need to open the swf with the flash lite player and you should see the app running on your device!
Feel free to let me know what you think and if you find a bug please tell me so I can update the application :) FITC is kicking off on 24/02 so I still have time. I’d definately appreciate any kind of feedback or reaction.

grtz Thomas

  5. ive seen the progress along the way .. ;)
    and now to see the actual beta version i’m even more impressed.

    can you give a sneak peak at what the final version will be? can we expect extra features or just bug fixes ?


    February 16, 2008 at 1:30 pm

  6. At the moment I’m concentrating on bug fixes. I must admit I have only encountered one bug.. Let’s hope it stays this way so that I may have more time to focus on some extra features. :)

    anyway thanks for your response man.

  10. Nice! But I can’t seem to select the zaal on my Nokia 6300

  11. hey paul.

    If you mean you have problems selecting one of the 3 rooms ( shaffyzaal, concertzaal and teekenzaal ) you just have to enter into the “schedule” and use your left and right arrows to navigate between the different rooms. Do you get an error message and/or do you see any schedule (like the one on the screen)

  12. Hi,

    Seems like I’m the only one having problem, but it doesn’t work on my phone (and PC). I’ve the files in the same location (on PC as well as phone Nokia 5700). I only get the menu bar at the bottom, no images :-(


    February 18, 2008 at 1:43 pm

  13. @thomas: I just tried to reproduce, but it is working now :) Thanks!


    February 18, 2008 at 2:06 pm

  14. @Paul: no problem, hope you enjoy the app!


    February 18, 2008 at 2:07 pm

  15. hey Thomas, great job! I’m not sure about having the schedule in png’s — you could probably dynamically populate the data and optimize on file size.

    Other than that I think its a really nice and usable application, Thanks!

  16. Hey Thomas,

    Very nice application. The design is cool, as well as the simple animations.

    If you want to make it as SIS installer with SWF2Go, contact me on my email. I will make one for you :)
