A small Mac OS X application that offers you the possibility to quickly transform any flash file into a standalone desktop application.
This way, you can distribute your projects in a more intuitive manner without having to acquire any additional programming skills.
However, getting started with flash2app might prove to be a bit challenging: although the first line in the app’s main window has the following tag “Select Flash File” you must go through the File menu and choose the “New” entry to actually select the source file.
Fortunately, everything goes smoothly after that: you can edit the application name field in order to adjust both the name and the output location, setup the window title and choose the icon you want to use for the new app (an .icns file is required).
flash2app allows you to add external files or folders and offers you the possibility to create apps that have a resizable window or are locked in full screen mode.
Further customization alternatives are hosted by the Options tab: you can input the author name, the copyright notice and the text that will be included in the About window. What’s more, you can password protect the app or make it expire on a specific date.
Last but not least, flash2app gives you the possibility to create both 32-bit and 64-bit applications and enables you to adjust the window transparency level.
To sum up, if you are looking for a minimalist app that can help you transform flash files into desktop application, flash2app might be exactly what you need.
