Free multi screen mobile app - Magic Screen Pro

After working on this for a few hours more I decided to release it into the wild.  It is available in the Android Marketplace as "Magic Screen Pro".  The application is basically a freehand drawing application that allows the user to select line thickness and color.   This is a sample screenshot of the app:

This app has several new features not seen on many other Flex/AIR mobile applications.  First, it features the ability to save work as *.jpg files.  For some reason this sometimes sticks on the iPad.  Secondly, it has a unique color picker custom component for mobile.  I published this component separately here.  It also accesses the camera roll so you can add background images.

There is no way I have found to flatten two layers when one supports a transparency channel though, so you can only save the drawing.

The source code for this app is hosted on my band's website at
