Making a Mobile app in Muse

Hello, ive being using muse for a couple of months now, ive manged to create my first few websites!
Recently i have been looking at some of the new services adobe is bringing in to CC, one that sttod out for me is phonegap. This allows html code to be transformed into a full functioning app. I have already attempted it with muse howeverit failed as my site was not made for mobile.
My question is, if i make a mobile site using muse and transfer it to phonegap, will it work on the majority of smatrphone? Thanks James

Phone Gap basically works like a mobile web browser. if you feed it CSS & HTML built for desktop PhoneGap won't change it to suit a mobile screen.
You need to build a mobile website then run it through phonegap.
jQuery mobile is a good option.

  • Making a mobile app for droid with flash cs5.5 and as3

    hello there i am having a problem with a mobile application i am  building. It is working just fine with no errors or lag on my  computer.however, when i export it for my droid, one of the lose  functions ceases to work altogether, causing the game to freeze and me  manually ending the app. I’ve checked the code over and over but with no  luck, am at lost on how to fix this.
    I use this code to call the lose function when these conditions are met:
    if(imHit >= 24)
    if(noThugs && enemyTwo)
    timed += (1/30);
    if(!noThugs && counter >= 15 || timed >= 5)
    longBoard.alpha = 0;
    removeEventListener(Event.ENTERFRAME, gameLoop);
    if(!endLevel && brokenBricks)
    and this line
    calls this function:
    private function loseGameNow():void
    removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, gameLoop);
    mArray0 = new mArray20();
    newSong =, 1000);
    array0 = new array20();
    newSound =;
    if(!brokenSign) +
    gameOverScore_txt.text = score.toString();
    trace(gameOverScore_txt.text + " text");
    home_mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, home);
    trace(“added home_mc.addEventListener”);
    trace(“added start_mc.addEventListener”);
    This code works completely fine on my laptop and does not disable the  score, or the two buttons until i load it onto my phone, and they become  inaccessible causing me to not continue the game.

    i'm not sure if this is necessary anymore, but i took the advise of another user here
    the key difference is, the user stated a preloading swf needed to embed the image in order to display before the whole apk is loaded.
    Seems to be working for me anyway

  • Moving from flash. whats a good starting point to making some mobile Edge apps?

    I'm coming from a strong Adobe background. I have used flash since the old macromedia days.
    I am looking to start making some mobile apps and I'm unsure where to start.
    I have brought myself up to speed with Edge and its pretty good.
    I want to put something together that has touch screen controls. basically I want to make a couple of buttons that the user can press on their phone, and the buttons trigger a movie clip to play from points on its timeline.
    There's so many Adobe products that are out and not out and for mobile and this and that.
    Is there a product that I should be using for putting mobile apps like this together? Is Edge what I'm to be using?
    I am a new creative cloud member although I am somewhat confused by its offerings, and remain unimpressed with it.

    I think you need search with key "flash for mobile" and read carefull. I hope you will get some good things that you need. Thanks a lot.

  • Muse Mobile Apps

    Team Muse, this would be a great addition for us to offer our clients! Android and Apple friendly.  How hard could it be? (sarcasm)

    Actually, I have installed apps on my phone that are nothing more than an app the opens up a browser within the app.  With Muse, I can build a mobile app that has the same behaviors as a typical app.  Is there a program out there that would marry the two together? Anyone familiar with this?

  • 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.

    How do I get someone to respond to my question here?
    Let me try again.
    With DW CS5.5 when I try to insert a PayPal button into a table (which I always did with DW8) the table in Design View gets scrambled, making it unusable.  Please would one of you out there who is much more knowledgeable about DW than me try it and see if there is a solution?  If you create a new HTML page in Design view, create a table in it, place the insertion point inside one of the table cells, go to the code view and locate the insertion point there, then paste the PayPal button code at that point. Here's the code:
    <form target="paypal" action="" method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
    <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="XSXQ9CUMUVLQC">
    <input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
    <img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1">
    Now go back to Design view and see how it looks.  If it acts the way it does for me, the table is no longer visible, but if you go to Live View everything looks fine with the table and the button inside it.  Of course, I can't design in Live View.
    PLEASE can someone out there help me.
    Many thanks.

  • Export offline mobile app datagrid to file able to open in Excel

    I created an offline mobile app using Flash and I have a datagrid I would like to export/save as a file (csv maybe) that can later be opened by Excel.  I appreciate any help.

    My datagrid looks like this...
    I used this code to create the datagrid...

  • How to remove Button from Flex Mobile app actionbar with AS3?

    How exactly would i remove a Button from the actionBar "actionContent" in a flex mobile app?
    I tried these:
    I'm not having any luck with those. Im guessing where it is located in the actioncontent isn't considered the stage. Any ideas?
                            <s:CalloutButton id="menu_btn" icon="@Embed('assets/images/menu/menu_btn.png')" visible="false">
                                      <s:Button id="btn_one" label="Button" />
    The actionContent is setup like that, I know like with most mxml stuff I could give it an ID to reference it but im not sure how how to give the action content an id number `<s:actionContent id="testID">` does not work. So how can i access this to remove it? making it invisible isn't cutting it i need to actually remove it.

    Does this do what you are looking for?
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <s:View xmlns:fx=""
            xmlns:s="library://" title="HomeView">
            <s:Button id="excess" label="excess" />

  • Tools for Mobile App Development with HTML5/CSS

    Hi --
    I am interested in learning to develop cross platform mobile apps using HTML5 and CSS.
    Which Adobe product(s) (and other tools) are best for this?
    I'm guessing that Apache Cordova and Adobe PhoneGap Build are places to start but I'm looking for input from others.
    I'm also guessing the Adobe Edge products are appropriate "IDEs" for this kind of thing?
    What does Cordova bring to the table that isn't available in native HTML5/CSS?
    I apologize if this is not the correct forum for this question but upon reviewing the list of available forums this seemed like the best fit.

    There are few routs you could go to create a Mobile App using Adobe tools.
    1. Adobe Muse then export from Muse and visit as Brad pointed out here:
    Can I make a Mobile site with Muse and then go through PhoneGap?
    "Export as HTML and the create a zip file with the contents. Go to Phonegap,s website and submit the app directly from there instead of through Dreamweaver."
    2. Dreamweaver and Phonegap build access inside Dreamweaver. Read other users experiences on this community form before you rely solely on Dreamweaver to upload your app to
    3. Manually coding and uploading your html, js, css, assets (images, audio etc) files coded either in new adobe Edge Code or Dreamweaver to
    For easier graphic editing for media devices use Adobe's Fireworks graphics software instead of Adobe Photoshop for graphics. Once you start on your project there are various workflows you can use depending on what you are trying to make.

  • Building a mobile app

    Hi, I've installed phonegap desktop and designing my app in Muse.  The updates are working fine and testing on my phone works great.  Is this the way to build a mobile app?  Can it work?  I don't know code at all.

    Ok, thanks, well let me ask you this then.  What if I wanted to make an app that isn't informational only, what's the best way to get things to work?  can I design the app in muse for the informational stuff and then insert jquery code in to do more dynamic things?  I ultimately want to be able to do some phone manipulation if you know what I mean.  Maybe access the phones voice recorder, or be able to leave a voice text, or access the phone's calendar to make appointments.  What would be the easiest way for a non coder to do something like that?

  • Selection of a mobile framework - for enterprise mobility app.

    There have been many plethora of mobility frameworks (e.g Kony, HTML5 based  frameworks) that have same features as Cordova - write your code once and run it on multiple platforms. Some are free,others are not. Having recently implemented enterprise mobility app (integrating with ECC, CRM) using one such framework, there are a certain I would like to consider before choosing a framework:
    a) How easy it to build security into the app (the login module)?
    b) How do I know that the requests for my data is an authenticated source?
    c) How good is the vendor support with plugins, upgrades to SDK?
    d) For frameworks that are free, do vendors really pay attention to issues that you are facing during (very specific to) your implementation.
    e) Scalability of the framework to support the app with newer mobile OSs, mobility sets (Motorola, Micromax, Blackberry), tabs.
    f) All mobile sets have limited memory at most to 2GB (or little more). How will the framework help in viewing huge amount of data that is there in SAP?
    From my experience, I would say it is big pain, implementing a enterprise mobility app with open framework adhering with the go live dates.
    SAP products are more easy to handle. A lot of featues comes inbuilt. Mobile apps comes as pre-packaged apps. One needs to customize it according to it needs. Product support from SAP is remarkable. Implementing and going live with such product becomes automatically easy adhering to the timelines. So is the maintenance. But of course comes the licensing price for SAP.

    Sukanta Rudra,
    I love to work with SAP products and so i m in SAP. Having worked on several other mobile applications before , i can clearly see the ease in development of Enterprise applications using SAP products portfolio.
    Often I have seem blogs in SCN, advocating for frameworks other than that of SAP. No harm
    Please mention the blogs as a reference for more understanding. I can always only see Cordova / appcelerator being the recommended platforms by SAP for cross platforms development.
    SAP Partners with Adobe-Cordova/phonegap , Appcelerator, Sencha (the three big players in cross platform development)
    Developer Announcement: Third Party Tools
    SAP Drives Openness and Choice for Millions of Mobile App Developers
    More over i have worked mostly on all the three for a while and have experienced the ease in development with cordova.
    Also the HWC (Hybrid Web Container ) - the former way for developing hybrid applications on SAP Mobile Platform till 2.x has Cordova/phonegap plugins inbuilt in it. Literally it followed the approch of Cordova and ui framework was of Jquery Mobile .
    But Now with the release of SMP 3.X things are completely under the control of developer. There are no restrictions to use a particular framework for development and developers are free to use their choice for development (SMP 3.x highlights BYOT - Bring Your Own Tools for Developers).
    Adding to above , just would like to mention there are few products mainly focused and developed on cordova technology (KAPSEL plugins, Appbuilder, Fiori Client , River RDE in future integrating Kapsel plugins)
    SMP 3.x is all open for developers , we are free to use any platform as per our requirements and convenience now.
    PLease have a look at these videos on how SMP 3.x strategy stands for
    My experience has been using Kony-SKY framework for developing the mobility apps (not mobile web). SKY plugins has been certified by SAP, to be used for developing mobility applications. (SAP does embrace other vendors). My questions pointed out above, was out of the struggles we had while implementing the project. Many at times, I felt I was reinventing the same tools while integrating into the SAP backends.
    I am not a Kony guy, but will surely look into this and would check if i can help you.But out of my experience with Cordova /HWC/ Kapsel , it was satisfactory.
    I presume you might have used/using SAP's Fiori apps, SAPUI5, mobile architecture and would like to gather some more information very specific to SAP's environment. I have no experience now on delivering apps using SAP's products. Maybe three months from now, I would get deep with 'SAP Fiori UX and SAP Screen Personas'. Maybe you could throw some light on few more queries.
    Yeah , thanks to SAP for Fiori being out of License now and UI5 an Opensource. I have had the opportunity to also work and implement Fiori transnational applications and also develop Custom UI5 applications .
    Note : Personas is really a good product , but on the down side is n't responsive in nature , so might not be a best fit for mobile devices
    How are builds generated for different platforms? (Android uses.apk, Blackberry uses .cod, iPhone uses .ipa)
    I can help you understand this with an Android Phone Gap project example
    Typically Native Android apps are developed using Core Java.
    Initially all the Core libraries of Android and java are loaded with import command
    import android.os.Bundle;
    Now Cordova libraries are added to existing libraries
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import org.apache.cordova.*;
    and Android uses the concept activities and layout for screen navigation and designing.
    and by default any android project should have an activity and layout for launching the application, for which the code looks something similar to this
    so , a Relative layout is initially launched as main view.
    As mentioned in the blog in  " How does it actually work section " cordova loads web views instead of the native layouts /activities
    How Does it actually work ?
    Technically the User Interface of a Cordova Application is effectively a WebView that occupies the complete screen and runs in the native Container. So , it is the same web view that is used by the Native  Operating systems. This purely means that only the Native Containers changes according to the OS and internally the web pages remain the same. (Since the browser rendering of webpages are different for each operating systems)
    For       IOS it is UIWebView class
                 Android it is in  android.webkit.webview
                 Windows it is WebViewClass and the similar goes to other OS .
    This line of code is responsible for that
    our developed web applications should reside in the above mentioned location to access as any native web view
    also few other hacks are to be done at
    public class [appname]Activity extends Activity {
    public class [appname] Activity extends DroidGap {
    and to the android manifest file accordingly to get the permissions
    Now internally the android applications works just like any native applications but accessing the web applications files in the web view. and just generates the .apk accordingly to the application.
    Say a query is executed from a mobility app, say the result set is some 1000 rows, how does the data fetch mechanism work. Do you use some delta data fetch mechanism?
    if i were to handle this , would try to filter this out to sections. Lets imagine huge PO s are resulted upon a query, i would try to create some sections/categories for Unreleased/Open/Approved /... and again try to perform some dynamic filter operations on each category selection/ or make use of pagination property to move across the items/records
    Also user would not be interested to scroll and search for his item from a huge collection of items.
    More over for handling of huge records Native approach is preferred to Hybrid/mobile web.
    When a mobility connection snaps while the user is using the app, does the app stop immediately? Or rather how is user informed about non availability of the network connection?
    Lets assume two cases here
    1) Complete Online application
    2) Online Offline Application
    1) If user is trying to access the data from the application , since this being an online application , a proper network connectivity id to be checked properly before making any request .
    for phone gap/cordova , Network Object helps us to check if network connectivity is available to make any request. else throw an alert to check the connectivity/ turn on the connectivity.
    Similarly a Connectivity manager API exists for Android . Here is an example. Same would apply for other OS also.
    2) For online - offline application . user wouldn't be able to read records from back end , but can perform other necessary operations on the device, and once the device gets connected to network, can sync with the back end . An alert should be thrown to inform the user about the loss in network connectivity and the limitations in accessing the data .
    Build/release mechanism and subsequent tracking for mobility apps for periodic release of apps  - say there would regular fixes to bugs, upgrades to framework SDK, device OSs might get upgraded - Is there a tool for tracking all these, etc
    Yes. MDM tools are perfect fit for these. Afaria and Mocana are doing well now.
    And, anything that you would like to share, related to SAPs environment, that makes implementation easier.
    SAP Mobility is really booming and will grow , dominate in enterprise mobility in future.
    For our understanding:
    Let us know for more.

    IG is a part of SMP 3 but not a separate component as NWG

  • ExternalUrl for EWS for Lync Mobile App w/ Exchange 2010

    Greetings- I have a Standard deployment: 1 FE, 1 Edge, 1 Reverse Proxy. Mobile App users can log in, but cannot access contacts/calendar info from Exchange Server. Checking Configuration Information on Lync Desktop client shows "EWS Not Deployed".
    I've been piecing together articles on "how-to" but they are for Exchange 2013.
    One article says that part of the process is to run the script Configure-EnterprisePartnerApplication.ps1. This is not present on my Exchange server.
    Another step is to configure the external WebServicesVirtualDirectory using the cmdlet
    Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity Contoso\EWS -ExternalUrl
    When I do this, I get an error "The operation could not be performed because object '[mailserver].local\EWS' could not be found on 'DNS_Server.local'

    Correct, I would imagine ExternalURL would only be external. If you didn't have EWS published you would be only leveraging the internal URL.
    The other thing is if your DNS auto-configure is configured for your email system LYNC should be leveraging the DNS records to connect. So, if you have outlook essentially doing outlook-anywhere today with auto finding its settings via e-mail lookup those
    things should work.
    If you had DNS configured to go off DNS SRV records you would only have to do this.
    The AutodiscoverVirtualDirectoy URL are supposed for Microsoft's optional use only.
    Therefore it is not necessary and not Best-Practise defining them!
    If you set the URL's, it will NOT HAVE AN IMPACT. Meaning, if they are defined or not, it will not change the Autodiscover behavior, since they are NOT USED within Exchange.
    What is IMPORTANT, is the Authentication, you must set it the Basic Authentication, so the SSL configuration will take part. 
    It would be enough is you configure simply:
    Set-AutodiscoverVirtualDirectory -Identity 'autodiscover (default Web site)' -BasicAuthentication $true
    I can agree with autodiscover rules making the EWS be found. That has worked for me in my previous environments.

  • PlayStation Mobile App crashes

    The PlayStation Mobile app crashes constantly.  It can be reproduced by just starting the app and waiting for 1 second.  
    I launched it, it prompted for an update, and after it installed I launched and it ran.  Whenever I try to install Anything, it crashes.  The only way I can work with it, is to hit the store button (or any installed app or game) immediately after it starts.  
    Please fix this so I can plan and manage the games and see the start page.

    This has been happening to me from the beginning as well, albeit on my Xperia Z2 phone instead. No amount of installing/uninstalling/updating/resetting seems to solve the problem. And it doesn't seem like a common problem either which is making solutions hard to come by.
