FreshAIRApps: A Premier Adobe AIR App Directory

The Adobe AIR platform is one of the hottest desktop platforms available. While we’ve given you numerous recommendations on great AIR apps, finding them all in one spot (outside of ReadWriteWeb) can be a pain.

With so many to discover, here’s a look at why you might want to recommend your favorite Adobe AIR apps at FreshAIRApps.

FreshAIRApps officially launched in April to showcase some of the most popular AIR applications available. James Whittaker, the interactive designer and creator of FreshAIRApps, does a great job of taking FreshAIRApps a step further than your typical directory. FreshAIRApps intends to give back to the community by providing users and developers with Adobe AIR news updates, tutorials, and numerous development resources.

FreshAIRApps Features

Adobe AIR Showcase

FreshAIRApps provides a great showcase for some of the hottest AIR apps available. Given a brief review, users are welcome to provide their own opinions in the comments section and rate each app on a scale of 1-5. So far only a handful of of AIR apps have been submitted. However, site visitors can easily submit an AIR app for reviewing via the “Suggest an AIR app” button located conveniently on the site’s navigation menu.

Adobe AIR News

FreshAIRApps also has a section devoted to Adobe AIR news. What’s really unique about this section is the type of news that’s featured. Not only will visitors receive updates on the latest news from Adobe, but also news about applications that have been reviewed including upcoming releases and links to interviews of the developers.

Adobe AIR Tutorials and Resources

Due to FreshAIRApps’ recent debut there are only two tutorials available. The provided tutorials are aimed at beginning developers of the Adobe AIR platform. The first tutorial features a host of information about the tools and technical skills you’ll need to begin developing an application using the Adobe AIR platform. Also provided are links to Adobe AIR development extensions for Dreamweaver CS3 and Flash CS3.

The second tutorial provides developers with backgrounds in programming languages such as Flex, Flash, HTML, and AJAX with a great list of documentation resources to get started. Along with book recommendations, more resources can be found in the ‘Resources’ section of the site.

Supporting the Adobe AIR Community

FreshAIRApps is poised to be the premier directory for all your Adobe AIR needs by providing a haven for users and developers to mingle together. Users now have a place to provide centralized feedback to developers, while developers can further promote their applications and exchange tips and news about the platform. With enough participation, FreshAIRApps could become a great resource for the Adobe AIR community.
