    I believe the syntax of ActionScript is VERY similar to Java (Don't hold me to that), so it's good for other languages in that respect, but yeah it's just for Flash.

    So I could simply just make an Android soundboard app?
    That's easy right?
    button.onclick.play=fluttershy-yay.mp3

    right?

    AS2 (easy way using some GUI elements too):
    Code:
    button.onRelease=function(){
    _root.sound.gotoAndPlay("fluttershy-yay");
    }
    AS3: Don't even bucking go there. About 30 lines if you're lucky.

    I used to do some animating a couple years ago, and as I remember, I was pretty damn good at it.

    Probably a little rusty now, since there's quite a few new features, and it's been a while.

    The syntax of AS2 is very similar, if not identical to JavaScript, which is based off Java. I don't think I've ever actually seen much Java, so I can't really tell, but it's definitely very similar to JS. AS2 is only really good for flash though, AS3 is more versatile as it can be used for FLEX/making mobile apps, but both are pretty much exclusive for flash. AS2 is much much much easier if you just want simple games, but if you want to be doing complex 3D stuff and dynamic things, it's best to get learning AS3. It's probably easier if you learn from scratch, I just haven't really bothered after spending so long with AS2. I've sort of had to learn some AS3, as some APIs are AS3-only, such as the livestream one. That's why it's taking so long to get the EPR player. If the API was AS2, I'd be on about version 5 by now.
