Why Not a Flash Front End?
First let me say I have yet to see a front end for Mac that doesnt leave a bit to be desired. It certainly gets my wheels turning - makes me really wonder if I have the potential to personally make one to my liking.
So I'm a Multimedia major in college, and I'm currently working at an internship, both of which all I do is pretty much work with Adobe Flash. There's a setting where you can export your project as a Windows .exe or as a Mac OSX .app. So, granted, I cant program for OSX, but I can certainly work with Flash. I've toyed around with the idea of using Flash to make a stellar Mac front end.
Has anyone else attempted this route, or thought about it?
I'm really considering it!
count me in as interested
I am very interested. I know a few bang-up java developers that I could probably bribe to help with the java side of things. I used to do java but have little interest in it these days. I'd rather focus on the Flex front end. Really there are three things that would have to be accomplished by a flex front end that require hardware, namely: GPS, XM, OBD-II. If I had these three features in conjunction with Audio and Video playback, I'd be satisfied. I downloaded your app awhile ago just to check it out... don't remember if the source is available?
