The BMX Color App is now compatible on all devices..
It has been a few years since we’ve added the BMX Color App to the site. When we initially added it, we were using a version that was created using Adobe Flash. As technology has evolved, phones have taken over as the most popular form of viewing content online and so have the standards and the way things are done online. One of those changes is that Flash is being discontinued as a standard form of media, which is why the BMX Color App has only worked on Desktop and Laptops for the past year or so. Most phones do not support Flash anymore, which was a bummer for a lot of people who came across the BMX Color App through Google or just by bouncing around our site.
Over the past nearly two years now, I’ve been working on finding somebody that could convert the program from Flash to the new standard of HTML5. We had a few people take a crack at it, but ultimately it didn’t work out. It didn’t help that we had no way to contact the original developer of the program to get some of the files we needed to make the change happen.
After a fair amount of disappointments and setbacks, I recently came across a way to get it done and decided to give it another shot and pulled the trigger, spending a good chunk of money, to finally make the conversion happen. The new HTML5 version of the BMX Color App is now up and running, which you can use in the same place it has been for a few years now — right here. It’s identical to the original Flash version, but runs on all devices. We’re pretty sure all the bugs have been found, but we’re sure there will be a few tweaks and adjustments still. The plus side to getting this version done, is that it should give us the option to do some customization at some point in the future. Whether that’s different colors or pattern options, or changing out parts, the ability to take a screenshot and display a gallery, or just getting it developed into an actual app that you can download in the store (that’s a big goal I’ve had for a long time). But that’s still a ways out since this initial update needs to recoup some of the costs before we get ahead of ourselves. So, if you are looking for a way to get some ideas for a new color scheme for your bike, you can now do it anywhere — It’s a little tricky on mobile still, but it does work.
So, that’s the update news for the BMX Color App. If you happen to notice any bugs, please let me know so that it can get resolved!
Now, go check out the BMX Color App already!
