          I want to invoke my AIR application using custom URI scheme in MAC OS. I made the following entries in *-app.xml

























          The info.plist of my AIR application is not getting updated with the above entries. I am using Flex SDK4.1. What else i have to do to invoke my AIR application from browser ??

            Have you been able to create other iPhone apps? It could be that you need to upgrade to Flex SDK 4.5.

                we used the following icons










                After the installing the app it is showing the icon correctly, but the issue is blank icon is showing while installing.

                    If you are interested in getting background tasking on iOS/Android when using Stage3D, PLEASE VOTE FOR THE FEATURE REQUEST HERE:

                      On my case we develop a communication app that need work in background and check each 15 secs messages from a chat server via simple http process, the app work fine on android and playbook but is useless on IOS.


                      We develop the app without know that the app can't work in background on IOS and now we have a major problem because who wants a communication apps that can't work in background?


                      I think this is a important feature that we take for granted in a commercial platform for a company like adobe.


                      I also open a feature request here :

                        Please check your bug when you get a minute as  one of the Adobe developers has supplied a comment.

                          Hi jrunrandy,


                          I don't understand why the staff closed the feature request, the explanation that they send isn't the right approach, this option isn't work for a repetitive process in background, this is for a single process, we already check a few time ago and only allow to execute the refresh process one time.


                          If the staff close the feature request in this way this platform will be useless, we will never get a real development platform for a mobile solutions.

                            Hi Peter,



                            That's not possible with even native applications, it's not an AIR runtime limitation. As I said, iOS imposes a time limit on background tasks.

                              I need to populate the CFBundleDisplayName in order to use an external tool that deploys mobile applications that requires this (IBM Worklight), but, the this isn't allowed (you get an error on the compile for iOS and Android when you try to add to InfoAdditions manually).  How do I populate this CFBundleDisplayName value?  Is it mapped to an existing config in the -app.xml required for Air/mobile?  I opened up the Info.plist that's compliled into a mobile app the .ipa and it's not there.

                                What version of AIR SDK you're using?

                                  CFBundleDisplayName tag is only added to the Info.plist file, if the name tag in the application.xml is localized.

                                  In order to localize the app name, you would need to add <text> tag under <name> tag in app.xml.


                                  For example:   



                                  <text xml:lang="en">English app</text>

                                  <text xml:lang="fr">Fran€ais app</text>
