AIR is getting popularity and Adobe releases AIR beta2

It’s not a secret that good things are always accepted fast by internet community. AIR being at a stage of Beta 2 (which has been released on October 1st by Adobe) it is already used for building a great number of software by leading companies all over the world.

AOL has released their “AOL Top 100 Videos” widget, which allows their users to see the hottest 100 music videos available at AOL! Pretty cute interface and nice functionality. Well done AOL!

On the other side of market, eBay, leading shopping and auctioning company, releases a desktop version of eBay . What a great thing! Now you may do all the web stuff in a single application, which is, of course, supplied with quite a user-friendly interface and does all its functions just right. Already has won a guitar effect processor using this tool. My compliments to eBay team!

Entertaining companies also haven’t left the AIR technology unnoticed, Nickelodeon has brought their www.nick.com to kids’ desktops using Adobe’s product. What a shame I’m not a kid 🙂

Adobe has listed a number of their well-known customers but I found the above three to be the best use of former Apollo technology.

Such news should inspire more developers to gain more skills to build RIA-application and invite more investors with new ideas to be easily ported to both web and desktop.

Viva AIR! Viva Adobe!
