December 7, 2012 Happy Holidays from Animated Media
Animated Media wishes all of our customers, partners, business associates, employees and contractors a joyous holiday season and happy new year. We have been working very hard over the past 9 months on an exciting and innovative m-health product for a Toronto-based company and look forward to sharing more about it early next year. We have many things “cooking” for 2013 including new partnerships, product updates, and new demos. Check back in the new year!Read More...
September 6, 2012 Animated Media - Your Multimedia & Mobile Apps Partner
It's been a busy summer and we look forward to showing some great new demos this Fall. We are particularly excited about a recent app project that involved implementing mini games and puzzles for Android. With our tools we were able to develop many of these mini games in 2 days or less, making for a very happy customer and fast development cycle.Read More...
We continue to create new and varied apps with our VGK Platform ... apps with enhanced multimedia capabilities and features like social media aggregation, video streaming, and fully customizable keyboards and keypads.
We've built up a great repository of re-usable components that enable our customers to get apps developed at less cost and risk, with a faster schedule and cross-platform support. These include components like LiveMobile, our customizable native application that enables all things video (capture, playback, streaming, upload -- uses could be in-field reporting or event-based video capture), and our latest Customizable Animated Keyboard.
We are also enabling companies to move their Flash content and games to mobile (iOS and Android) so they can continue monetizing their investment in those assets.
Customers and developers are telling us that they want to create one intuitive user experience and deploy it across screens - be it mobile, tablets, PCs or TVs. This is a great way to guarantee user satisfaction and loyalty, and differentiate your apps so they get noticed. We deliver that vision with our technology and expertise!

November 11, 2011 Flash Player on Mobile to be Shelved
WOW! First thing in the office on Wednesday morning, we heard the latest news that Adobe would cease development on their Flash Player for Mobile. This may be a surprise to some, but Animated Media saw this one coming.
Since our inception, we believed that Flash is a great authoring tool for stunning graphics, animations, and UIs, but could not deliver the best user experience across screens, especially on mobile devices. We founded Animated Media and architected the VGK Platform to leverage the best of Flash, while enabling that content to run ultra-fast on low-power devices like smartphones and tablets (and other consumer devices), and across operating systems like Apple iOS and Android. As system level software developers, we know how to optimize software for the target hardware and we bring this expertise to all of our projects and customers.
Despite the media chatter over the past year+ and the infamous Apple-Adobe fight, Flash content continues to be pervasive, particularly for digital advertising and gaming. Animated Media's VGK Platform is more valuable today than ever before, because we have an innovative development suite that can support your Flash content natively on mobile and consumer devices going forward despite Adobe's path.
Come check us out if you want to preserve your investment or your clients' and customers' investments in Flash content. See the e-blast at http://conta.cc/vcjFNA Read More...
