Hello all,


What are the plans to develop a WATCHOUT Android app?



Dataton has addressed that with WATCHOUT Systems Manager,

a set of software applications and components, allowing you to manage one or several

WATCHOUT systems. It provides capabilities to control and monitor their

operations in a predetermined, or interactive, manner.


The utilities include WATCHOUT Remote, WATCHOUT Scheduler and The WATCHOUT Management API.

All the applications included come with source code, allowing you to use them

as starting points should you choose to customize for your own applications.


Documentation is included in the WATCHOUT Systems Manager download package.


The WATCHOUT Systems Manager collection runs under Adobe Air.


Adobe Air runtime is available for the Android OS.

Adobe AIR 2.6 for Android smartphones and tablets.

AIR 2.6 for Android adds support for Android 3.0 and the

latest Android tablet devices – including the Motorola Xoom –

as well as improvements to performance and GPU-based rendering,

updated Android gesture support, and improved handling of HTML content within AIR apps.


[strong]AIR 2.6 for Android can be downloaded from the Android Marketplace[/strong] and is available on devices running:


Android 2.2 (FroYo)

Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

Android 3.0 (Honeycomb)


System requirements


ARMv7 processor with vector FPU, minimum 550MHz, OpenGL ES 2.0, H.264 and AAC HW decoders

Android™ 2.2, 2.3, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2

256MB of RAM

But is there an android app, ...

As stated above - yes, since the WATCHOUT 4.2 introduction of WATCHOUT Remote..


... or prospects for one, for android phones, like the iPhone remote app? I'm gonna be upgrading my phone soon and want to stick with android, but will switch to an iPhone, if that is the only way to get the Watchout remote app on a smartphone.


The standard WATCHOUT Systems Manager Adobe Air WATCHOUT Remote application

should work on an Android system with Adobe Air installed. - Adobe AIR - Android Apps on Google Play

Jumping right in...


Has anyone ever used Flash to build a remote app for android?

I often use Flash to create touchscreen remotes for WO shows and want to try using an android tablet. Flash has the option to export for android, but would this work...?


If anyone has ever done this i would love to hear!

I can't find anything in the documentation about how to install the adobe air products on android.

I'm running the applications fine on adobe air for windows, but getting it to work on android seems very painful.

Is there anywhere that has the steps spelled out?

It seems the .air adobe air application has to be converted to a .apk android package.

I looked up how to do that, downloaded the adobe air SDK, but have gotten stuck at the signing the app with a certificate.

I'm not really a programmer, and haven't done much with certificates.

Here's an example of what I was putting in as a command line in the SDK.

adt -package -alias AIRcert -storetype jks -target apk WOsimpleremote input_air C:\temp\WOSimpleRemote.air
