Chrome Custom Tabs is an Android library providing in-app view with Chrome-like look and feel. Furthermore, it shares cookies stored by the browser and as a result, users don’t have to type in their account details again if they have signed in to Facebook before using Chrome. The library offers better user experience compared to in-app web view, which requires user’s details every time. Of course, if native Facebook app is installed, it’ll be used instead.
The AIRFacebook extension has been updated to v1.4.0. There are no changes to the ActionScript API, however, the underlying Facebook SDKs have been updated to v4.12.0 (iOS) and v4.12.1 (Android). See below to learn what changes you need to make in order to use this new version of the extension.
- Look under the hood to get an idea of how things work
- Use the latest version from the GitHub (as the SWCs are not rebuilt after every fix)
- Make changes to some of the APIs very quickly
None of this is possible if you’re using the precompiled SWCs. On the other hand, project compilation takes a little bit longer. Luckily, if you’re one of the many Starling/Feathers developers who use IntelliJ IDEA then there’s an easy way to achieve faster compilation times while having the ability to browse and edit the sources.
