Flash Application Design Solutions
The Flash Usability Handbook
Flash Application Design Solutions shows you how to harness the power of ActionScript 2.0 and make the most of the improved design tools of Flash 8 to create usable, intuitive Flash interfaces.
The book concludes with a case study that showcases the solutions developed in the previous chapters, all working together in a single application. This example puts all the pieces together and highlights just how, with some thought and consideration, Flash can improve usability on the Web.
This book is essential reading for all Flash designers and developers, from beginners seeking valid solutions to veteran Flashers looking for a fresh perspective on application design, interaction, and reusability.
From the reviews:
"This is a great book, not just in terms of the subject, which integrates usability concepts with an application framework, but in terms of clarity and organization. ... The main goal is to explain how to develop complex applications with a rich and efficient user experience. ... Each chapter has an introduction to the topic discussed, and then proceeds to tackle the code. ... I recommend this book as a tutorial for new developers, and as a companion for experienced developers." (Jose M. Ramirez, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
