Hi

I have a developer working on a gift App for me, i have seen in for instance that the app bank were you can create your own gift APP all you do is upload a gif and when it is sent to the users wall page, there is a play button with a flash pre loader.

My question is do anyone know how or were to find information on how this option is added that converts your uploaded gif and instantly is converted into a swf, or maybe it works different then Im seeing..

Thank you for any help..

In order to view a gif, you don't have to convert it to swf. You could write some stuff around it that handles the play button - a play image, an image preloader, and a click handler :)

correct me if im wrong...but facebook doesnt support gifs!!

theres a app on facebook called "social app studio" that i think does what your lookin for...in fact within 5 mins you can build the whole thing your developer is producing!

i only recently came accross this app so not sure of its flexibility...but it says you can do anythin, and a lotta stuff is templated!!
