Every body knows that nowadays,mobile world growing day by day, here are over 5 billion mobile users, number of operating system as Android, Blackberry, iOS, etc. Today we are going to share best flex tutorials that help you to develop some great part of applications with the help of flex like photo gallery, drag and drop function, making custom Youtube player with flex and many more useful tutorials.
A few days ago, we covered useful AIR applications for designers, we thankful to readers for appreciate that article and share their comments.

Away3D is one of the more popular free Flash 3D engines, and recently a smaller, faster version of Away3D was released called Away3D Lite. While Away3D Lite lacks some of the eye candy present in the more complicated 3D engines, its focus on simplicity means that it is perfect for a simple application like a 3D photo album.
Today I am going to run through a smallish tutorial on creating and using drag and drop in Flex using the DragManager class, which is a utility provided to make drag and drop easy. I should also mention, right off the bat, that some things like lists already have various drag and drop features built in. I however will be showing an example that is useful for any custom drag jobs you might need to do.
We’re going to be creating a contact form in Flex builder. The reason we’re using Flex builder over Flash itself, is due to the functionality built into the Flex framework. It’s easily accessible and would have taken quite a lot of coding to achieve in Flash. We’re going to be looking at the validation methods and the alert window available in the Flex framework, as well as many of the components which make using Flex that little bit more special.
Google has just released a Flash edition of the Google Maps API. In this tutorial you will how to install the necessary components and build a very basic map.
This tutorial will be done using Adobe Flex Builder, but you are also able to use the Flex SDK if you prefer. Google has information regarding that process on their site.
There are many ways to retrieve data in Flex, one of the easiest and most used methods is utilizing the
HTTPService component. Explaining how to use this object to gather photos from Flickr is exactly what this tutorial is about. Included is an explanation of how we can send requests and handle their results using simple http web requests.
One of the many things people want to do when using a DataGrid is adding new rows to the data. Now this can be done a bunch of different ways. One method is using a popup to handle adding items to the collection the grid is bound to. Another method is to add another row directly into the grid. This tutorial is going to focus on the second of the above methods.
In this tutorial we will be mocking up and finishing a pan and throw class that will allow us to add this effect to any element we want. To accomplish this, we will create a image viewer – but not your average viewer. Here we’ll have zooming, throwing, panning.. Almost sounds like a ninja app, huh?
Digg is one of the more popular examples of the trend towards social browsing. It provides a database of news and video links, ranked by the community, and is a good way to find some of the gems hidden out there on the web.
The Digg database can be queried via it’s API. At the moment there is no facility for submitting links programmatically (although this is said to be in the works), but you can certainly get access to those links already submitted.
One of the coolest and most useful features I use in Flex are item renderers. They allow us to customize how lists and datagrids display information. This tutorial is going to show how to use three different types of item renderers, drop-in, inline, and custom components. I actually used item renderers in an earlier tutorial on using Advanced Datagrid Topics to get song information. But this tutorial is going to go a bit more in depth on the topic.
YouTube has a number of official API platforms available for querying it’s video database. Flash/Flex is not one of those platforms, but that hasn’t stopped a number of 3rd party API’s being developed to fill the gap.
The goal in this tutorial is to built a contact list which loads dynamically from an external XML file. When the user selects a different contact, the data will automatically update to display properly. We’ll also be applying some basic stylesheet changes to the results and give the project a more customized touch.
