I continue to see a very high level of interest for data visualization applications on mobile devices. Tablets in particular are fast becoming the device of choice for dashboards, analytics, and BI applications. With its powerful charting components library, Flex is the ideal solution for building these applications. And because it’s Flex, it’s also cross-platform: the same application runs on iOS, Android and the BlackBerry PlayBook. One codebase.
As an example, I built a simple “dashboard portal” during the beta program. Now that Flex 4.5.1 is out with built-in support for iOS, Android, and the PlayBook, it’s time to share the source code publicly.
The source code is available here: https://github.com/ccoenraets/MobileDashboard
Usual disclaimer about the source code: This is a sample application, I intentionally cut some corners, used the out-of-the box look and feel, etc.
If you haven’t seen the application in action, you can watch it here:
