Just tried appmobi. Have to say it looks good. Most parts of my game ran smooth.
Found a few minor bugs, thought this might help.
I use chrome for testing, and I have tested this with the appmobi simulator as well as iOS5.1 (on an iPhone4s).
1> the capx has some ios like scrolling. But appmobi always scrolls to the top left of the layout. You can view the intended implementation working on chrome.
2> text object is not supported on appmobi? I have placed a small text object in the center of the layout.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
I guess you guys are super busy and have probably already looked at this. But if you could confirm this is a bug, I will not look at crazier ways to try and implement a similar mechanism.
Also note that this could be related to the touch not working on mobile bugs we have been seeing lately. Because the problem event seems to be the "is in touch"
We're aware with issues with appMobi's directCanvas, as the release notes state we're working with them to try and get them all fixed.
thanks for the update.
