Adobe announces Connect Pro Mobile for iPhone and iPod touch – Macitynet.it
Adobe has announced the availability of Connect Pro Mobile for iPhone and iPod touch, an application that is part of the professional Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro solution for creating conferences via the web. Connect Pro Mobile was made using the beta version of Flash Professional CS5 and made public as a native iPhone application. It is therefore the first application developed by Adobe that uses the Packager for iPhone technology. The newly released version of Connect Pro Mobile offers mobile users the opportunity to access rich communication options that allow, for example, to attend business meetings, training sessions and seminars on the web using their iPhone or iPod touch devices.
With Connect Pro Mobile, users can listen and attend live presentations, such as live video conference meetings and screen sharing demos. Mobile users can view and participate in the meeting at any time via text chat. VoIP conference calls are streamed directly to iPhone or iPod touch devices over WiFi or 3G connections. The moderator in charge of the meeting can also allow participants to take part in the conference call or even opt for the direct call of users from their mobile device, thus avoiding the inclusion of complex access codes. The application allows users to participate in conferences organized with Connect Pro regardless of the type of distribution of the Adobe solution that can be installed as a hosted service, implementation at the customer's facilities, or managed service.
The release of the application was announced in preview last October at the Adobe MAX event, the world conference of Adobe developers, during which the company had demonstrated how with the beta version of Flash Professional CS5 it was possible to export the applications for iPhone devices using the same source code used for deploying applications to desktops and devices in the Flash Platform runtime. The new feature opens the doors of iPhone application development to millions of designers and developers who are currently using Adobe's well-known Flash authoring tools.
