FlashAir Developers Website
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — August 1st, 2013 — Fixstars today announces the launch of a technical information website for developers of Toshiba FlashAir apps and services: “FlashAir Developers” http://www.flashair-developers.com/ open_in_new
FlashAir is an SDHC memory card with embedded Wireless LAN functionality. Since FlashAir works as a stand alone Wireless LAN access point, FlashAir embedded devices are able to both send files to and receive files from each other. In addition to wireless networking, FlashAir also retains normal SD card functionality, thus storing data and allowing typical Wi-Fi devices like PCs and smartphones to access its contents.
With FlashAir, users will be able to browse photos in a digital camera from a smartphone wirelessly, as well as download their favorite photos to any networked device, such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
How to use the FlashAir
The FlashAir Developers website provides API information for browsing files on FlashAir cards from typical Wi-Fi devices like PCs and smartphones, as well as providing app development tutorials, sample code, and support information with a FAQ and forum. By using the APIs from the FlashAir Developers website, app developers will be able to develop apps that work with FlashAir for free.
“I am very pleased to provide the FlashAir API to all potential app developers through the Fixstars Solutions FlashAir Developers Website,” said Hiroto Nakai, Senior Manager, Flash Business Strategy Development, Memory Division, Toshiba Corporation Semiconductor & Storage Products Company. “On one hand, FlashAir is essentially an SDHC memory card with Wireless LAN. However it’s ideally suited to so much more than just digital cameras. I am expecting imaginative solutions to come from the developers who use the FlashAir Developers website.”
“I am very excited to support app developers through the FlashAir Developers website,” said Satoshi Miki, CEO, Fixstars Corporation. “We have been operating developer websites for various platforms and providing valuable support to a large number of software developers. Utilizing this resource, we hope to nurture FlashAir to become a platform for advanced devices and services.”
