Developers, use accelerometer in your Flash Lite projects

January 7, 2008


Kuneri, a Flash Lite company based in Oulu, Finland unveiled their innovative product, KuneriLite 0.9.4. KuneriLite is basically a development toolkit for Flash Lite developers. With it you can create cross platform applications using Flash Lite technology without any Symbian programming knowledge. Yada yada yada huh? Wrong, because Kuneri also made a set of powerful plugins which truly unleash the power of Flash Lite to your phone.

We’re talking about some really cool stuff here, how about:
  • Accelerometer plugin
  • Camera plugin
  • Connect plugin
  • Download plugin
  • DTMF plugin
  • File plugin
  • GPS plugin
  • Rotate plugin
  • Simple protection plugin
  • Timer plugin
  • Upload/Download plugin

"We have been developing for S60 platform for a long time and see the potential of Flash Lite very clearly" says Ugur Kaner, CEO of the Finnish company. "We see a gap between strength and user experience in mobile development, and aim to help developers to close this gap by using our tool. We believe KuneriLite will be very popular among developers, as it is very easy to use and learn, and leads to impressing results; bringing imagination into concrete in shorter time. We believe that, because we are mobile developers ourselves and understand developers’ needs very well as insiders. We also had a long alpha testing period and feedback we received supports our belief."

KuneriLite comes with 3 editions: Basic, Professional and Commercial. Basic edition is free to download and try. Professional edition meant for freeware productions, and also offered free of charge for non-commercial purposes. Commercial edition is offered for commercial projects and has "a very developer friendly license and price".
