I came to know that Adobe Air has been installed over 200 million times across the world and that definitely sounds like a real good news to me. We all have seen the possibilities with Adobe AIR in the form of various wonderful applications like TweetDeck, Seesmic Desktop and have seen Yahoo play around with it too! I’m sure that this news will not attract many, however will draw attention of various developers.
The possibilities are endless with Adobe AIR and the best part is that the applications built on this platform work on all three major platforms i.e. Windows, Mac & Linux. There haven’t been many AIR applications around that work with WordPress and as far as I know, Moderator application is the only one that works directly with WordPress and is powered by Adobe AIR. There are other air apps that are good for designers and developers and would be useful for you too!
There was an application which was built on Adobe AIR and it allowed users to publish posts to their WordPress blogs called AirPress, although is not available at the moment because of no further development. I would definitely love to see some adobe air powered app that would go ahead and compete with other desktop blogging clients. What are you thoughts about that?
After the success of Adobe AIR, I’m confident about few things and one of those is that we’d definitely see lots and lots of Adobe AIR apps and may be it’ll act as the bridge between the gap that we see amongst all the major operating systems!
