As you may know already, the Flex 4 ACE exam was just announced on the Adobe Developer Connection site about a week ago. We’ve had quite a few inquiries about a version of Attest for the Flex 4 exam. Of course there is, we wouldn’t forget you 🙂
Here’s how Attest 3 is going to work. Instead of maintaining two different applications, Holly and I made it slightly easier on ourselves by combining the free and commercial versions into one. So there’s only one download from now on, no more Attest vs Attest PRO, there’s only Attest 3. If you run Attest 3, you’ve basically installed the trial version of the application.
The trial version is going to offer the mini exam feature and upgrading to the commercial version will unlock the full version with the show answers feature, timed vs un-timed, learning mode, etc. For the time being, the free version (trial) is coming out in roughly a week. We’re just ironing out some more testing (how ironic for a testing app – ha!) and last minute tweaks.
In the short term, Attest 3 will be released as the free version only. The full commercial version is coming soon thereafter. The app currently runs one mini exam and it will not allow you to purchase until we release the full version through the AIR Marketplace. You should be able to download the app within a week or so and start using it to study. This should be enough to tide you over for another week or two for the full version, but we’re on track to have the commercial app ready by mid-August.
We had planned on having Attest out sooner, but believe it or not this will still be the app’s earliest release in comparison to the Flex ACE exam’s release. Old timer Attest users should be happy this time around 😉
As always, I’ll post as soon as there’s more.
Edit** I should add that the “trial” that doubles as the free version will not expire. So you can use it for all of eternity or until the Flex 5 ACE comes and I’m late with Attest 4 – ha!
