    Hello All!

    We are in pre-release testing of an App that should make a lot of TouchPad users happy. It's called "FlashFile Launcher". For those of you that have one to many flash games and or movies, this will be a "MUST HAVE APP!".

    It does exactly what the name implies, it launches flash files. What's cool is that it has a built in file browser so you can find your files no matter where you put them in your user directories. Once you find the SWF file you want, it's just a tap and it will launch in full-screen, high quality mode. It is literally two taps and you're playing a flash game or watching a flash movie.

    So unless you like the "double, tripple, quadrupple tapping" or the "sliding jello-screen" you in you get in the browser views, you're going to want "FlashFile Launcher".

    Look for the release anouncment this week! Meanwhile, here are some pics...



    Screen One - File Browser


    Screen Two - The Game


    Enjoy!

    This app plays locally stored files/games. We're looking into incorporating web-based games but are running into some issues with the different sites and the way they display advertising. They want their advertising revenue and won't allow direct connections to the games.

    Do you have a couple of web-based games/sites in mind? Send me a link via PM and I will attempt to contact them.

    Cheers,

    Shortcut Launcher allows you to make shortcuts on your Launcher Tabs that will open the browser with the flashfile embedded. You then have to manually put into full-screen mode. Shortcut Launcher is good for a few files. FlashFile Launcher does not create shortcuts, it just launches the file in full-screen mode right from the file chooser.

    I hope I explained it well enough,

    You have to supply your own flash SWF files. You can purchase them or download for free all over the web. Maybe someone can suggest some good ones here in this thread?

    Enjoy,

    Would love to here some suggested sites. I will be more than happy to google but always better to hear suggestions from the experienced.

    Thanks

    google for "index of .swf" ittl find a ton of apache driven sites that host tons of swf files, just rm them and save.
  15. #15  
    Would be awesome if you could navigate to a website with a swf game and extract it from the Touchpad.


    If I helped you or you have downloaded one of my files,
    then least you could do is click the "Thanks" button.

    they tend to have extras server side other than the swf side making them unrippable, already tried ripping some parts client side and hoping the server side would pickup, shame tho would make some online games better to play when yoru storing soem of the game on your touchpad/pc.

    Well, using Internet Explorer, I has found the .swf in temp internet files...

    We sent out what we hope to be the last beta version to the testers tonight. We think that this one is a keeper. Anyway, we should submit to the catalog, no later than Monday.

    You're gonna love this App if you're a flash gamer.

    This is great! Will it be available free on preware or paid in hp app catalog?

    I hope if it paid, it can be available outside app catalog, so for non-supported countries, we can buy it via paypal such like kalemsoft media player.

    Several people are asking, "Which flash games work on the ToucPad?". Thats a great question. I'm sure that there are several of you forum folks that can answer better then I can.

    To try and answer the question, I have asked the mods here if we can keep a sticky moderated list within the forums. Thats one possiblity. There are others option we can try too. To see what might be best I pose the question to you all; What would be the best way to keep a "TouchPad - FlashGame Compatiblity List"? Keep in mind that this would be a list, not the games themselves.

    I'm thinking one of these and no order:
    webOS Forum,
    Twitter,
    Facebook
    Google+

    Let me now what you all think,
