Anyway, I had hopes of converting an app that I had been working on over to an AIR app for desktop deployment. The app that I was going to port over was a quick and rather silly app that I threw together using the Yahoo! Maps API and an geoRSS feed constructed using Yahoo! Pipes to filter earthquake data from the USGS. However, I quickly remembered that developing against an alpha release of anything can be tedious at best.
Being as how I had implemented Yahoo! Maps in the app, which is apparently still being fully ported to AS3 and uses a wrapper to interface with the AS2 version of the mapping APIs and actual map SWF, I immediately encountered an error on publish:
Error: Error #2067: The ExternalInterface is not available in this container. ExternalInterface requires Internet Explorer, ActiveX, Firefox, Mozilla 1.7.5 and greater, or other browsers that support NPRuntime
So, until I get a chance to code an HTML/JS version of the API using the new HTML component, I'm stuck with FlexQuake, not the intended AIRQuake:
It's still kinda cool if you live in California and want to see the earthquakes over M 2.5 that have occurred over the last 7 days.
