Promoting your application, and making it easy to be accessible to everyone is one of the key of its success. Custom url schemes, are one of the best way to do it! On a previous blog post, I explained how you could use them with AIR.
I also presented a service, rdrct.it, which allows thanks to a unique link to direct you on the mobile store corresponding to your mobile operating system and even launch the app if it’s already installed!
Branch Metrics goes way further (and for free). You have all the options of rdrct.it and you can give parameters to links. In other words, for instance, you can invite your friend to a game you’re playing (via a link generated inside the app) and for example giving him some of your items so he won’t start from scratch! This open the door to many opportunities.
Give a try to the Branch Metrics ANE, it has been crafted with love by your humble servant!
We’re glad to introduce our first commercial product: an ANE for Google+!
We’re big fan of Milkman Games’ ANEs, especially the GoViral one. It enables to share a post on Facebook, Twitter, mail… everywhere? Not really. It’s missing Google+! Thanks to our ANE, you will be able to target the Google+ platform for iOS and Android.

Hey guys! Time flies, February is already finished.
It’s time for a very short blog post! I made many AIR Native Extensions this last months, playing with ads, analytics, sounds… it’s awesome the number of amazing SDKs you find on mobile. Unfortunately all my ANEs are private due to NDAs.
Here are some links to learn how to write your own:
– never played with ANEs? Get started with an Adobe tutorial.
– before coding your first ANE, have a look on the ones provided by StickSports. Richard Lord’s made an excellent work! He provides the best template 😉
– developing your ANE, be sure to read his tips!
– and yes, obviously you can add an Objective-C view on top of your Flash View but you unfortunately you can’t do the reverse.
– for a long run have a look on this Adobe’s PDF.
Hope this links will help!
