Hey Adobe AIR® developers, now that Adobe® has introduced AIR Native Extensions (ANE) mobile development capabilities, have you been wondering how to optimise your games in AIR® to use the Xperia™ PLAY touchpad and gamepad buttons? Well, look no further. Sony Ericsson has created an ANE for the Xperia™ PLAY, which will allow you to gain access to touchpad and gamepad buttons so they can be used in AIR® games or content on the Xperia™ PLAY. Read on to download the Sony Ericsson Adobe AIR ANE and get more details.
A couple of weeks ago, the source code for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android™ 4.0) was released. This meant the start of an intensive period for the engineers at Sony Ericsson, in order to create a working, stable and certified software release of Ice Cream Sandwich for our 2011 Xperia™ phones.
In our pursuit for greater openness in the Android community, we would like to share some exclusive information of the different phases and activities of Sony Ericsson’s Android development, starting with the release of the Ice Cream Sandwich source code, and leading up to the release of a software upgrade for you to download on your phone.

Have you had a chance to check out Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Games blog? With their recent announcement of 200 available games (and counting), consumers have another great place to find the latest news about Xperia gaming. And for developers working to get their games optimised for Xperia devices, such as through the Stand out from the crowd program, Developer World also sees this as fantastic opportunity to gain further exposure for your games. Jonas Petterson from the Sony Ericsson Developer Program explains more after the jump.
Do you know about the AppXplore analysis tool? It’s a little handy app we originally created for internal purposes within Sony. But then we thought, why not make this available to everyone? So we did just that. AppXplore will give you all the nitty gritty information about the apps installed on your phone – what permissions your apps are using, what Android™ versions are supported, what libraries the apps are sharing and so on. And now we have updated this app with some new features!

As promised when we announced our support of independent developers, we have now made the camera library binaries for a number of Sony Ericsson phones available under a special end user license agreement (EULA). You can use these camera libraries to handle the camera hardware in our 2011 Xperia™ phones except Xperia™ PLAY, which has a different camera module.

If you have missed it, our friends at the Sony Ericsson Product Blog today confirmed that Sony Ericsson plans to upgrade the entire 2011 Xperia™ portfolio to the next version of Android known as Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. Find out all the details at the Sony Ericsson Product Blog!
More detailed information regarding this upgrade, timing and global availability will be communicated in due course on the Product blog. For more in depth technical information about the Xperia™ upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, stay tuned to Developer World!
The other day we published a tutorial on how to create Timescape™ extensions, and now it is time to launch version 1.2 of the Extension Development Kit (EDK). We are constantly adding more things to this toolbox, and in this version we’ve included the LiveKey™ emulator. So if you install EDK 1.2, there is no need to install the LiveKey™ emulator separately. On top of this, you can still develop app extensions for both the Timescape™ social network app and the Music player in Sony Ericsson Android™ phones using EDK 1.2. Also, did you know the EDK features several generic Sony Ericsson skins?
