AdobeAIR cross-platform apps: Nodality

Simon Gladman / FlexMonkey:

Here’s a quick introduction to my new app for iOS and Android tablets, Nodality.

In Nodality, everything is a node. Calculations can be built up from number nodes which feed into operator nodes. Complex networks can be created and the interface displays the value at every point in the network.

Info:

Nodality is a new type of calculator: numbers and operators appear as nodes in a network interface and the relationships between them define your calculations.

For example, to add five and six, create two number nodes, one for five and one for six, create an operator node for the multiply operator, and finally define the two numbers as inputs to the operator. Although this sounds a little complicated for such a simple piece of arithmetic, Nodality allows you to edit the numbers, change the operator and expand the network to create complicated systems.

Nodality also includes counter nodes that increment themselves over time and graph nodes that draw out your networks. It contains a handful of demonstration projects that show graphing being used for drawing circles and spirals.

It’s worth watching the introduction video to get the basics of how Nodality works, but in a nutshell:

  • Tap and hold on the background to create a new node
  • Define the type of node in the right hand panel 
  • Tap and hold a node to start creating relationships between nodes (suitable targets highlight in yellow)

This application is designed for tablets - it will run on a phone, but you’ll probably either need a stylus or very thin fingers. Complex networks can slow the application down a little and this application runs best under modern, powerful tablets.

I’m working on the full featured ‘pro version’ with a greater range of trigonometric functions, better graphing (this version has a locked graph range of -150 to 150) and the ability to save and share projects. If you have any features you want or need, please add them to a review and I’ll try my hardest to include them in future versions.

Actionscript Developer Confession:

My day job is creating business applications for banks and advertising agencies. The ability to use AIR to deploy software to touch devices opens up the opportunity to create applications such a media booking systems and business activity monitoring dashboards for tablets.

Being able code in ActionScript and deploy to such a diverse ecosystem opens up a whole new universe of development for me. I’ve already started creating a touch based network node user interface and successfully deployed development versions to iPad and Nexus 7.

Finally, a word about Flex. As a framework for building applications, I still feel it is unparalleled. I code with it everyday and it is an absolute joy. Both of my touch applications use it and there are no performance issues. The Flex team have just released 4.12.0 with improved memory and performance, improved mobile skins and iOS7 support and over 80 bugs fixes.
