However, this is not a book about mobile development, and you may not have a tablet to try this out on. But I am sure you have a laptop or desktop computer, so we will target the desktop in this first iteration. By building on AIR, we are sure that an easy path to mobile devices is available. Knowing this to begin with helps us to design in such a way that will make it easier when that time comes. For instance, avoiding components that are difficult to use on a tablet like hidden context menus and tree controls in favor of big, friendly buttons and interface components that can be revealed as needed.

Now we have a very rough idea of what we are going to try and build. Let’s first think about the things that our application will manage, and then look at the user interface that will help us create and edit those things. info Describing the Domain When planning a project you may need to research a bit more about your domain. Learn about the basics—in this case, writing fiction—before proceeding.
