tvOS Apps with AIR

Here are the steps to create an app with Flash Builder and target the new tvOS (Apple TV).

  1. Be sure to be using  Adobe AIR 25 beta with Apple TV support or greater (http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/air.html)
  2. Create provisioning file for your tvOS app
  3. Create a “car” icon (creating a new XCode project targetting tvOS) and include it in the packaged app (https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2228465) [this is OPTIONAL, only needed for realease packaging]
  4. Update the application descriptor modifying the UIDeviceFamily to “3”

 

And now it’s time to experiment! The first problem to address is managing the TV Remote input. I will be writing more soon. Stay tuned!
