With Background Transfer – ANE you can easily download big files to your Adobe AIR app on iOS. My native code uses Apple’s NSURLSession class which is invented to perform this download nicely:
- download is managed by iOS;
- the transfer continues even when the user sends the app to the background (e.g. switches to another app);
- no time limit is set for download task;
- if the app crashes during the download, the retransmission will start automatically when the app is launched;
Yesterday, I published my Adobe AIR native extension for doing background download on iOS https://t.co/GdZLzgFt2l— Maciek (@ncreated)November 28, 2014
I’m Maciek. Coming from Flash background now I’m developing for iOS platform. However I use AS3 for my biggest passion - indie games development. I decided to share some of my thoughts about games development with the community. So, here’s the blog!
