what is the best third party app to build flash standalone applications with?

Feb 7, 2013 4:00 AM

Hello everyone,

 

Can anyone tell me what is the best third party app to use with Flash as to create standalone applications.

 

So far I have looked at Zinc and SWFStudio. I realise that there is AIR too but I believe this application will only extend Flash to a degree.

 

What I need is to get as much control of the PC/MAC/Mobile device as possible. Also, I need to be able to communicate with other exe/app applications either on the local machine or across networks.

 

I think it would be better to list what I need it to do so:

1. Listen for actions within other exe/app applications on the same system/over a network

2. "Sniff" a directory and then list its contents

3. Control other exe/app on the same system/over a network

4. Save/Update XML files on the same system/over a network

5. Save and retireve data from a database on the same system/over a network

6. Play video files FLV, MPEG and as many other formats as possible

7. Be able to build for PC/MAC/Tablet?Mobile devices

 

I think thats a good list to start with.

 

Any help would be very much appreciated here.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Daz
