About Flash Lite and This Tutorial.... Using Flash CS3 Professional or Flash 8 Professional, you can publish content for Flash Lite 1, 2, or 3, which can be transferred to a mobile phone as a standalone application, wallpaper, screensaver or viewed online if the phone can run Flash Lite player within it's web browser. Currently the most common use of Flash Lite is as a standalone application on the mobile device. This means your published .swf file would ultimately get transferred to phone either by web download or by connecting the phone to a computer via bluetooth or cable. Each phone might have a different way of transferring files to it but testing your finished .swf on the actual device is not necessary for this tutorial. Flash CS3 Professional includes Adobe's Device Central which emulates hundreds of phones to test on. Flash Professional 8 also has an emulator but not as refined. It is beyond the scope of this lesson, or any Flash tutorial, to include instructions for transferring the .swf to every possible cell phone. So if you are interested in testing the final .swf on your own phone you'll need to consult your phone's included documentation for transferring files to it.
