Creating a mobile app using Captivate as a base

Hi All
I am looking for some advice on a project I have been tasked with.
I am interested in making a stand alone mobile app. The idea is to create individual courses in Captivate, publish them to HTML5, and then include them in this app. A user may choose which Captivate course to take, click into it, and once completed return to the main app.
So far I can run the individual courses on the mobile devices using Phonegap.
My question is, can / should a Captivate project be used as the base for the actual mobile app. It should be able to...
1) Open other Captivate projects and be returned to once completed. Preferabbly being able to open to a specific slide in the project.
2) Record the results of the Captivate projects.
3) Provide a menu interface for selection of these individual courses.
Has anyone had any experience creating mobile apps with Captivate? Or should I build the actual app in some other way, and just link to the Captivate projects?
How might I record the results from a Captivate project when I am not using a system which already has the functionality (e.g. Moodle)?
Thank you for any help and insights you may offer.
Cheers

  • Can't create new Mobile App on preview portal

    Hi all,
    I'm really excited about the new Mobile App feature in the preview portal and want to get started on something. I went to the portal, clicked in to create a new Mobile App and entered the name and service plan then clicked create. The dots started blinking
    and then nothing happened. I've tried it in Safari, Chrome, and IE with the same results. I've tried it with private and non-private browsing. My account is a Partner subscription that allows $100/month in Azure credits. Has anyone else had this problem? Any
    idea how to mitigate it and get to coding my new mobile app? Thanks for any help!
    jared

    The restriction has been removed. You should be able to use any valid name for your resource group now.
    I was unable to create a mobile app using the defaults. I had to create a new service plan and Resource group.
    Also, the docs on resource groups give me a 404. I have no idea what a resource group or service plan even are.

    thanks in advance

    Hi,
    Instead of   oLabel.placeAt("content"); use return oLabel;
    so it will as below,
    createContent : function(oController) {
      var oLabel = new sap.ui.commons.Label("l1");
      oLabel.setText("Test label");
      return oLable;

  • I have created an iPhone app using xCode and am now ready to publish it. Do I have to sign up to the $99/yr program in order to get a certificate?

    I have created an iPhone app using xCode and am now ready to publish it. Do I have to sign up to the $99/yr program in order to get a certificate? I keep getting the error message: CodeSign Error: code signing is required...although the app tests fine on the simulator. Does this mean that I need to pay the $99 to create the app or do you only need to pay if you want it published on iTunes?
    Any advice will be gratefully received.

  • How to create a new app using existing Dev & Dist certificates

    Okay, I have already created one app that has been approved by Apple. Now we're ready to create a second app and we're trying to create the .p12 certificates using the existing Apple Dev and Dist Certificates. For some reason we can not get the .p12 certificates for the new app to link up with the existing Apple Dev and Dist certificates. I don't understand what I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    You must have 2 folders with the following :
    Dev:
    aps developer identify.CER
    CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningReq
    Certificats.P12 (already created for your previous app)
    Certificats Push Dev.P12
    Mobile Provision
    Distri
    aps prodution identify.CER
    CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningReq
    Certificats distri.P12 (already created for your previous app)
    Certificats Push Prod/distri.P12
    Mobile Provision
    Try, you will know quickly if you havent do it well

  • Kind Chef mobile app, used Starling and Adobe AIR

    Hi everyone,
    Recently we were busily working on an idea called "KindChef" which is a system that helps restaurants and we as customers.
    We have started a campaign for it on Indiegogo site, which is a crowdfunding site backed by Google as some of you may have heard about it, so that we can find the ones who are interested in the idea and can back us and contribute to it to help us make it happen...
    here is the campaign link: http://igg.me/at/kindchef/x/5769968
    We have developed a MVP (Minimum viable product) mobile app for it, using Starling and Adobe AIR. But it's not the end product and is not so optimized yet. It's just a sample app to show how the system works, but yet so many other features will be added to it's release version as we have discussed on the campaign page.
    We're also going to develop a control panel for restaurants too to manage their restaurant better. we're also going to develop a desktop app for them using Adobe AIR.
    Honestly, there are two reasons why I am talking about it here:
    1) the  Web developer’s perks, which provides AS3 programmers with many useful designs and OOP code snippets that we have used while developing the project and can help you a lot on your projects.
    Also we are giving away all of the Adobe AIR Native Extensions that have been used inside of the project.
    2) the second reason is to spread the word. Because sharing a campaign is a really important thing as Indiegogo counts this as a positive point for the campaigns, so if you just share it you have helped us a lot in our way,  or you may also contribute to it
    Please visit the link above and find more information about it for yourself.
    The most important way that you can help us, is by sharing the campaign link with your friends.
    Please feel free to ask any questions about the whole idea and system or the app.
    Best,
    MyFlashlab team.

  • NFL Mobile App Used Data When Not Open

    I used the NFL Mobile App last night for the first time. I connected to my WIFI thinking it wouldn't use any data. But it did anyway. And then during the night when the app was closed it used a whole lot of data on its own. I have notifications turned off. Why should this be using data when not open? And why should it be using data when on WIFI?

    To have to go to settings, apps, find the app and then force stop is
    a lot of steps just to stop an app. Not really an acceptable solution.
    However, I re-installed the app. Opened it to make sure it worked ok. Made
    sure my WIFI was on during all this. Then went to apps and did a force stop.
    Took several tries to get it to stop for some reason. Later I noticed my phone
    seemed to be using a lot of battery for some reason. Re-booted phone to make
    sure all apps had closed. Went back in and checked the NFL app. It was no
    longer stopped. I force stopped it again. Took several tries. Waited a few minutes
    and checked again. It was no longer stopped. For some reason it won’t stop. So
    I had to un-install it again.
    Not sure why all this is happening with this particular app, but I can’t take the
    chance of inadvertent data or battery usage. So it will remain un-installed until
    someone tells me the problem has been fixed. It’s a shame as since this is one
    of the perks of my Verizon account, I feel I have been slighted. I can’t believe I’m
    the only one having this issue.

  • Flash Builder 4.5.1 Creating iOS Mobile App creates components not Spark views

    Hi
    I have Flash Builder 4.5.1 on Windows 7 using SDK 4.5.1.
    Following many of the Hello World video tutorials (including what's on Adobe TV's website) I create a new Mobile based Application in Flash Builder. I set it up to be a View Based Application targeting iOS and iPhone (although the problem is for any iOS device).
    I follow all the instructions and yet the MXML that's created at the end is component based and not targeting Spark Views. This floors running or viewing the app! Code for both Application class and View is as follows:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <components:ViewNavigatorApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                                         xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" xmlns:components="spark.components.*" firstView="views.MyMobileProjectHomeView" applicationDPI="240">
        <fx:Declarations>
            <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
        </fx:Declarations>
    </components:ViewNavigatorApplication>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <components:View xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                     xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" xmlns:components="spark.components.*" title="HomeView">
        <fx:Declarations>
            <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
        </fx:Declarations>
    </components:View>
    I have no idea why Flash Builder is creating code that's namespaced to components and not the spark framework.
    The code that's created in the course is below and yet if I import their project and try and view in Design view Flash Builder tells me 'An unknown item is declared as the root of your MXML document. Switch to source mode to correct it.':
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <s:ViewNavigatorApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                                xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" firstView="views.HelloWorldHomeView" applicationDPI="240">
        <fx:Declarations>
            <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
        </fx:Declarations>
    </s:ViewNavigatorApplication>
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <s:View xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
            xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark" title="HomeView">
        <fx:Declarations>
            <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
        </fx:Declarations>
        <s:Label text="Hello World"/>
    </s:View>
    Please help
    Many thanks in advance

    Here's the solution:
    The problem did not exist on an installation of Flash Builder on a spare MacBookPro.
    On my main computer (the one with the Flash Builder issue) I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Builder 4.5 (then updated to 4.5.1). Creating an iOS Mobile Application now creates the correct code.
    I have no idea why it was creating dodgy code.
    The only difference with the new Flash Builder install is that SourceMate 3.0 is not installed yet. Perhaps something had gone wrong in the Adobe Updater when going from 4.5 to 4.5.1, who know...all speculation...anyhow it works now!

  • Trying to create first iPhone app, use Interface Builder or Xcode first?

    I'm trying to create my first iPhone App, do I start with Interface Builder or Xcode first? And how do I link the two together?

    It's not really that simple -- you'll be working with both. Interface Builder is used to design the GUI (graphical user interface, which consists of the windows and buttons and text fields and so forth, the parts of the application that your user interacts with). Xcode, on the other hand, is used to write the code that tells that GUI what it's supposed to do, and how to do it. So, to answer your question as best I can -- generally, I would imagine you would want to start by creating the basic form of your GUI in Interface Builder and then start coding where appropriate in Xcode, then you'll move back and forth between the two (Xcode and Interface Builder) as needed.
    If you're new to programming and want to start with iPhone apps, I recommend picking up a book on the topic (Apress publishing has a book called "Beginning iPhone 3 Development: Exploring the iPhone SDK" that is a good one, and don't forget to take advantage of Apple's iOS Dev Center, which has lots of good documentation on most any topic that will be helpful in supplementing the information in the book you buy -- click [here|http://developer.apple.com/iphone/index.action] to go there).
    Keep in mind, however, that trying to learn to program iPhone apps will be difficult (to say the least) if you don't already know Objective-C, and the Apress book I recommended above will not be easy to follow without understanding Objective-C first. Objective-C an object-oriented extension of C, and it is the programming language that is used to develop iOS apps (apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad). I would definitely recommend learning Objective-C on the Mac before jumping in to iPhone development in specific. Apress has another book called "Learn Objective-C on the Mac" that I would recommend for this.
    Furthermore, since Objective-C is an extension of C, you won't have an easy time learning it without a prior understanding of the C programming language. Again, Apress has a book for this, called "Learn C on the Mac."
    Put simply, learning to program for the iPhone is not something that comes overnight -- it's a step-by-step process that takes patience, and you have to be willing to go through these steps if you want to learn to program properly for the iPhone.
    Step 1 -- learn the C programming language
    Step 2 -- learn the Objective-C programming language
    Step 3 -- apply your knowledge to developing for iOS (iPhone's operating system) with the Cocoa Touch framework
    Anyways, that's just my advice -- I definitely recommend taking the time to do it right and not jumping straight into the deep end, but in the end only you know what works best for you. Also, like I said, I definitely think investing in a book on the subject is worth the time and money, so let me know if you want any other recommendations for books beyond the ones listed above.
    Hope this was helpful to you, and best of luck with your journey toward programming for iOS.

  • Button with transparent for Mobile apps using flex

    Hi,
    I am new to adobe flash builder 4.5 and flex 4.5 sdk. I have created a viewbased mobile application for Iphone and Android. What I tried to do is, I  placed a button in my first view and attached an image into it (.png file).

  • Sparkline chart not visible in obiee mobile app using ipad

    Hi,
    While trying to test our dashboard on IPAD 2, I am noticing that I am not able to view sparkline charts in the IPAD. I understand that since sparkline charts are built using JQUERY and Apple devices don't support jquery, therefore this doesnt work. Can someone please suggest any workarounds, so that we can get the sparkline charts working in the IPAD?
    Thanks,

    Hi,
    Viewing the reports generated by OBIEE on the phone/ipad devices requires further configuration of the OBIEE presentation server as the devices presently does not support Flash displayed on web pages. So reports that contain Flash components like charts are not displayed correctly.
    We can modify the instanceconfig.xml file to display charts in a custom graphic format like PNG or JPEG instead of flash.
    Include the following in <Server Instance> section of instanceconfig.xml
    <Charts>
    <DefaultImageType>PNG</DefaultImageType>
    </Charts>
    It is recommended that you configure a separate presentation server to cater to the mobile device users as displaying charts in PNG or JPEG disables some of the interactive features offered by Flash.
