To illustrate the concept of using the browser's cookie database to save data on behalf of a Flash application, we are going to explore FlashTone. FlashTone is a relatively simple and small Flash application I wrote which, by playing tones of the exact same frequency as those generated by touchtone phones, can actually dial numbers for you when you play the tones on your mobile device into the receiver of any touchtone phone. What's interesting about FlashTone, however, is the fact that it also allows users to store up to 10 frequently dialed numbers using nothing but Flash, JScript, and cookies.
