BlackBerry Jam Direct is a free interactive virtual event with a live video broadcast that enables you to ask questions and hang out with presenters and participants from around the world. Senior Director of Enterprise DevelopmentGregg Ostrowski kicks things off at 10:30 a.m. EST uncovering key insights into developing for Enterprise, including why you should be interested in this growing area, and how to understand the challenges business decision-makers face when mobilizing applications in a BYOD world.
Shortly after that, Mark Howden and Shikhir Singh will take developers on an in-depth exploration of the tools that will help them develop and deploy cross-platform apps for enterprise.
The session will be recorded, but I recommend trying to attend live to make sure you get your questions answered by the BlackBerry Enterprise Developer experts.

Last week I decided to upload one of my previously developer apps in Flash CS6, Arabic Alphabet, to iTunes. But upon completion of uploading the app, I received the following message:
Your binary is not optimized for iPhone 5. As of May 1, all new iPhone apps and app updates submitted must support the 4-inch display on iPhone 5. All apps must include a launch image of the appropriate size. Learn more about iPhone 5 support by reviewing the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.
This caught me off guard but after addressing this iPhone 5 issue here is my take on this
- You have to have at least AIR SDK 3.6 to be able to package for iPhone 5
- Make sure to include at least Defaultfirstname.lastname@example.org screen shot of your app with 640×1136 resolution (portrait) to the root folder of your application.
On the other hand if you are using Flash Builder 4.6 with AIR 3.5, here is the link to instructions you should follow to correctly package your app: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/articles/launch-images-ios.html
In Flash Builder under Project >> Properties >> Flex (or Actionscript) Build Packaging > Apple iOS > Package Contents, you need to check and include Defaultemail@example.com in the package. You can also check and uncheck any other items you want to be included in the package. All the files that get packaged with the build will be listed under Package Contents.
Hope this will help.

Using Pure MVC framework to develop mobile app was a success! Great experience!
PureMVC is a lightweight framework for creating applications based upon the classic Model-View-Controller design meta-pattern. In my work I implemented the MultiCore Version, written for the ActionScript 3 language. It supports modular programming through the use of Multiton Core actors instead of the Singletons used in the Standard Version. Learn more about the framework here…
Here is more on this developed app: This app will help you learn the shapes and sounds of the Uyghur letters using familiar words in English that resemble the shapes and use similar sounds. Under shape recognition activity, you will first read the word and then find the individual letters it consists of. Also, under listening activity, you will hear the pronunciation and the image of a word. Here, the task is to guess which word has been pronounced by choosing one of the two words.
