New features and a new home for Swiffy
By Pieter Senster, Software Engineer
In June we released Swiffy, an experimental tool to convert Flash to HTML5, on Google Labs. We were thrilled with the response: in the first month, Swiffy users converted hundreds of thousands of files.
Although Google Labs is winding down, Swiffy will continue to be available. We’re moving Swiffy to a new home: http://www.google.com/doubleclick/studio/swiffy (or, for those in a hurry, g.co/swiffy). Although it’s no longer a Labs product, it is still in beta, so it may not be able to convert all your Flash files, but we’re working to improve it all the time.
Pieter Senster is a Software Engineer on the Swiffy team. He's currently planning his first diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef.
