Adobe funding and supporting Flash Lite developers
The Open Screen Fund
The Open Screen Project Fund is a $10 million market development fund that will provide grants to developers in order to accelerate the creation of apps, content and services that leverage the Adobe Flash Platform and run across mobile, desktop and consumer electronics devices.
Developers around the world are invited to submit their ideas. Proposals will be reviewed by an Open Screen Project Fund steering committee. They are seeking applications that work across devices, and showcase the key features of Flash Lite, Flash Player and AIR. While the apps do not have to run across all three screens (desktop, mobile and CE devices), at a minimum a mobile version is required. Additional criteria can be found in the FAQ on the website.
Flash Lite Developer’s Challenge
Adobe also announced a Flash Lite Developer Challenge, with entrants competing for a chance to win cash prizes (15.000$ for every winner), software and distribution deals with leading aggregators.
