Your Favorite AIR Application

By Rich Tretola | April 9, 2009
7,325 views

There have been so many really cool AIR applications created over the past year. There have been a few compiled lists of the editors favorites and some even include some of my AIR contributions.

So, I would like to ask you two questions (please reply in comments).

  1. What is your favorite AIR application?
  2. What AIR application do you use most often?

Here are some of the lists that have been compiled by others.

    My Favourite AIR Application is TourDeFlex (as a flex developer, it’s an amazing resource for Flex components). The AIR application I use most is TweetDeck (even more so, now that memory management issues have been fixed in latest release).

    My favorite is Destroy Twitter, use it all the time.
    Also likes Kuler, since the begining! But DT is the all-in-one that stands out from the rest.

    I love DestroyTwitter (www.destroytwitter.com) for it’s great design and smooth functionality. I also use Kuler quite often, but think it’s pretty clunky.

    DestroyTwitter & Pandora.

    DestroyTwitter is the first Air app i have used that was not bugged out like 3 day old road kill. Pandora is not fany but it works. Would love to see a much more rich UI and such but not everyone can be as cool as Destroy Twitter and its Skinability and its nice set of personalization features.

    DestroyTwitter. It makes previous AIR apps I’ve used look like they were created by below-average children.

    The AIR application I use most : twhirl. The AIR App that helps me most : TourDeFlex.

    Twhirl is the AIR app I use the most because it starts at startup and is never shut down. I don’t know if it’s the best Twitter app but it does exactly what I want it to do. That being said it sounds like I need to take DestroyTwitter for a test drive.

    Not just to toot my own horn but I don’t know what I’d do without pixDIF. I don’t use it every day but when I need it nothing else will do.

    And long live Tour de Flex!

    I have dozens of indispensable AIR apps installed. Kudos to Adobe for getting such a great platform out there for us.

    Absolutely Destroytwitter. I really hated/didn’t understand Twitter until i used this program and it doesn’t use up as much ram as photoshop like some other air apps

    DestroyTwitter. I also use Lita from time to time for basic SQLite stuff. I use others, but they don’t really stand out like the aforementioned do on a pretty regular basis (DestroyTwitter especially).

    That’s a lot of DestroyTwitter. About time I check it out.

    Recently, I liked Skimmer the most. TweetDeck is the AIR app that I use the most.

    I personally don’t use it, but the new version of Salesbuilder is a perfect example of WHY Adobe created AIR. Powerful, robust and flexible. The way an AIR app should be.

    The only I really like personally and use is Acrobat.com. I know it sounds a little biased to like the one that Adobe built, but I just haven’t used anything else. DestroyTwitter, TweetDeck, and Twirhl are all pretty sweet. Skimmer too. I don’t use them all that often but I know they are putting a lot into them.

    I use TweetDeck to follow Twitter tags e.g. at conferences.

    When I’m coding, the apps I use most are:
    RegExr for wrestling RegExps
    Lita and Run! for SQLite work

    (yes, that last one is an app I wrote, but it is literally my code editor for hours at a time when coding SQL for AIR apps)

    Klok is an amazing program, I’ve used it for a long time now. The UI is incredibly friendly, and it only took me a few minutes to figure everything out. I wrote a review on Klok from a self employed game developers perspective, give it a read if you get the time. Glad to see the developers getting the attention they deserve, they’ve worked hard on giving us a great, free program.
