You can use it on any html web page, and any part of the page can interact with a sprite (click anywhere on this page and wait and you’ll see what we mean).
Spritely has the following great advantages
- it’s a great alternative to Flash if your desired platform does not support it (check out this page on an iPhone!).
- it’s light-weight so you can do fill the whole window with movement without draining bandwidth.
- it is supported on the major modern browsers, including Safari on the iPhone and iPad.
- animated objects can also fly above the text of a web page, or you could animate a background, without affecting other elements on the page.
