Starling Highlight – SpellCubes by Thibault Imbert

Felix - SpellCubesI wanted to highlight a very nice and polished production using Starling called SpellCubes developed by RIActivate ApS. Spell Cubes is the well-known alphabet cubes found in many children’s room. Here is a little description of the app below from the SpellCubes website:

We believe that communication is key to human development, and that learning the alphabet is a crucial part of this development. Learning to read and write a language demands experience of the alphabet. You must learn each letters individual form, phonetic sound and how it in combination with other letters form a word.

That’s why we created Spell Cubes!

Spell Cubes brings the phonetic sound to the alphabet cubes, and shows how letters form a word. Spell Cubes lets you create and manage words, in different languages, for your child to play with, and spell over and over. Spell Cubes is the toddlers first playful meeting with the phonetic alphabet and the preschoolers place to experience a fun way to learn to spell new words.

The application looks gorgeous and is powered by Starling and Feathers, download it for your iPad!

    Why use Starling for get a best performance and don’t implement all direct characteristic with the native code as3, native MovieClips, native Sprites, native Shape with GPU Acelerator, similar how Starling is working in this moment with the configuration “direct render”, but without external frameworks.

    Would be very good and very exciting create full business aplication for our clients, games and all with native code and don’t begin to leave the native code in the cabinet by using frameworks like Starling.

    Starling is a very good framework, but i would like work with all this functionality with the navite code and don’t neglect this.

    you do not believe, AS3 has the best and professional UI call Flash Professional for create good interface and the job is very simple and quickly, if you want you can export all to swc and work with developers IDE. But lately things like MovieClips, Sprite, native events, etc, are increasingly far. Now we should use Starling, Away, Flare, Feathers, all less native classes for get a best result
