Just scroll through a variety of rich Internet applications listed at the Flex Showcase Web site. People's creativity has no limits, really.
While Flex almost became a household name in the IT shops, AIR is still
a new kid on the block. But some organizations not only are pretty
comfortable with it, but managed to prepare production releases of
their applications with AIR. These are some of such applications:
AOL Top 100 Music Videos application built on Adobe AIR gives users the
ability to browse and play the top 100 music videos from AOL Music,
search for more artists and view related artist content. The
application also takes advantage of local system resources enabling
features such as integrated bookmarking, personalization and sharing.
Desktop is an impressive application built on Adobe AIR that creates a
persistent connection with eBay customers. eBay Desktop delivers
product availability notifications and auction updates straight to the
buyer, in real-time, so users don’t have to open a browser and go to
the eBay site for the latest information. Users can import auction data
into local files, or export data to local files for use with other
desktop applications. eBay Desktop has all the features of eBay in the
browser and can operate directly from the desktop.
The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. NASDAQ
Market Replay leverages Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR to deliver a RIA on
the desktop that enables financial professionals to replay market
activity in detail at any point in time, helping investors understand
why a stock price moved in a certain direction. The complexities of
equity trading are enormous — with millions of orders continuously
traveling different paths to central markets. NASDAQ Market Replay lets
brokers show their customers exactly what was going on in the market at
the time a trade happened, and Adobe AIR allows for instant response to
an extremely large data set, something not possible in a browser.
The New York Times Company The
New York Times Company is launching ShifD, a new RIA that allows users
to shift content between computers and mobile devices. ShifD works on -
and between - the Web, mobile devices and through a downloadable AIR
application, giving people an easier way to consume media on the go.
Developers used Ajax technologies to build both the browser-based
version of ShifD and the desktop version deployed on Adobe AIR. The New
York Times Company is also developing a sophisticated blog reader on
is a fun virtual pet site. You can create your own pets, feed them,
groom them, look after them, and watch them grow. Using Adobe Flex and
AIR, Neopets is creating a desktop habitat for “petpetpets”, little
insects that live on the pets. The application will even use artificial
intelligence to guide their behaviors.
Nickelodeon’s MTVN Kids and Family Group's The
company’s first Adobe AIR application, developed in Adobe Flex, is a
clever jigsaw puzzle game that encourages Nickelodeon fans to explore
www.nick.com, locate pieces of a video, and then drag the pieces to the
AIR application on their home computers. Each week a new part of the
video puzzle will be released, requiring visitors to scour the web site
for the latest pieces. Once assembled, the video puzzle can be played
within Adobe AIR and provides a link back to the company’s web site,
where viewers can watch the full-length video.
