Porting Flash Lite to the Iphone: Rock Werchter Mobile

with 16 comments

Today we released a mobile guide for one of the worlds biggest and most popular music festival: Rock Werchter. I think I might say our concept is becoming well known amongst the community but now we finally are reaching out to a more widespread target. Rock Werchter equals 4 days of musical entertainment, belgian beers and lots of fun. Every year thousands of flyers/brochures/posters/…  are being designed, printed and handed out or hang up like everywhere you go.

This year we finally take it to the medium of the future (Mobile for those who should have doubts). Our mobile guide offers a complete Rock Werchter schedule, giving you a quick and clear overview of who is performing when and where and against which artist he is competing. (There are always 2 stages having concerts at the same time). The whole Rock Werchter Area is being visualised into a small and handy road map so unless your name is Pete Doherty you should not get lost. Attending Rock Werchter or just interested in the mobile app? Go check it out here!

But what’s most important: this time we do not only reach out to flash lite enabled phones from Nokia, Sony Ericson, … we have ported our app to the iphone. For the first time (unless we missed something) flash lite content is ported to the iphone. Of course with all of the iphone UI advantages implemented! “How exactly did they managed this!” I hear you guys shout out loud. A while ago I was contacted by Emanuele Cipolloni from barefootsoft.com telling me about an awesome project they were working on: b.Tween. This is a framework using barefootsoft’s EyeGT technology to compile mobile content and deliver it across other devices. They were finishing the framework and wanted to test it out on Flash Lite content which I’d gladly delivered as you probably could imagine!

To summarize: eyeGT is the most comprehensive graphics and
multimedia toolkit that combines an antialiasing vector animation and rendering
engine with extensive texturing support and a multi channel synchronized sound
system. eyeGT provides all this in a compact code base that interfaces to
applications via an extended set of methods and functions (API). The API controls
every aspect of eyeGT, allowing for the finest and most detailed customizations
without reinventing and changing the structure of your existing code.

You can find more information about EyeGT at www.barefootsoft.com. Even though the b.Tween framework is still in a beta version and it is not 100% perfectly optimized, the result is stunning! Check out the youtube video:
