A breath of (Adobe) AIR

APC magazine has a writeup of Adobe's cross-platform runtime, AIR, which looks at eBay's beta version of eBay Desktop based on Adobe AIR (its verdict: less annoying that eBay's website) and a number of other applications which have been written for AIR, including:

  • Arise  - a news aggregator;
  • Bee - a desktop blog editor which integrates with WordPress and Flickr;
  • Fresh - an RSS feeder created using AJAX;
  • MapCache - a map/direction system using Yahoo! Map Web Services;
  • Podcast Player;
  • RoadFinder which combines Google Maps and Yahoo! Maps.
