Works with any SWF

Use Scout to profile and optimize any SWF whether it runs on mobile devices, desktops, or in browsers. And you don't need special debug versions – profile your games in the commercially available Flash Player.

No code changes

Scout works automatically, without any changes in your code. Profile your content in-context with very little effort, find hotspots in no-time.

Project lifecycle use

Scout helps you early in development by detecting problems before you do. Then use the same sophisticated analysis tools on production systems after your game is released.


Mobile profiling? Yes!

Details

Scout shows you a level of detail that will blow your mind! From tuning your ActionScript to optimizing GPU and memory usage, Scout is with you every step of the way. Scout will be your new best friend for advanced profiling.

Extensible

Need additional information? You can send custom profiling data from ActionScript, and it will automatically integrate into Scout. With the new Telemetry API, it's just a few simple lines of code.

Cross-platform

Say goodbye to OS-specific profilers. Scout runs on both Windows and MacOS, and with the Scout companion apps for iOS and Android, it's never been easier to profile AIR content on mobile devices.

Lightweight

Scout is just 12MB. It's lightweight and fast, like it should be. And don't forget, you can profile your games in the commercially available Flash Player. Debug version not required.
