Zoom In? Really? How often do you ever want to zoom in on an app? But we have all seen that when we right click on a Flash file.
Why would anyone want to do this? Well, there are several very important reasons:
1) Games â€“ the power of AS3 has brought Flash to the world of digital entertainment. At last it is possible to focus on the idea of your game rather than on how to improve the laggy experience. One thing that is still missing â€“ right click functionality. We had this forever in desktop games, now it is time to let your casual RTS, RPG and FPS creations conquer the web.
2) User Experience â€“ 2 buttons are better than 1. Every experimentalist’s dream is to be able to have more input options, not just one button. I can bet someone would soon create a stunning interface using this new functionality and we would see that on no less than FWA.
3) RIA â€“ Rich Internet Applications. My clients are often asking if it is possible to remove embeded Flash Player menus from their applications and replace them with their companyâ€™s branding stuff.
