my first Flash Facebook app

Recently I created a facebook app called “ImageViewer”.

The App shows your Photos in fullscreen, and you can also browse through your friend’s photos.

Here are some coding hints:

  • you can’t use fbml (doesn’t allow flash fullscreen)
  • you need some php params provided in the iframe url (session secret…)
  • using “WebSession” for the Facebook authentication worked fine for me
  • I couldn’t find a way to test the app locally. So I highly recommend a FTP ant task for a good workflow
  • Working with one big model class (handling the whole facebook data) worked fine.
  • It wasn’t as anoying as I thought ;)
