Editors' Review

+

A single platform to download individual applications across multiple operating systems. What's not to love? Adobe Air (which stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime) is a sleek runtime platform that installs and runs an application on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. You'll need it to download applications built using Air. Since developers need only make one version of the app for all three computing platforms, they can spend more quality time creating their product.

Or so the theory goes. As a runtime and delivery mechanism, Air won't determine how well the app fulfills its purpose, but programs built on Air do tend to look sleek and polished, like Web apps pulled down to the desktop. They also install quickly and seamlessly, as long as you've got the most recent version of Air running. If you don't, each app installation will prompt you.

Air has allowed developers to make hybrid applications, or desktop tools that can integrate with various Web services, while still allowing some offline functionality that Web browsers don't yet have. This includes things like taskbar and dock notifications. It continues to develop alongside advances to Adobe's other Web plug-ins. If you're looking at desktop applications based on Air, you should definitely give it a try.

What's new in version 2
We have made huge improvements in the overall performance of the runtime. Without changing your AIR apps, they will now use less CPU and up to 30% less memory. We are also introducing dozens of new features and hundreds of new APIs for developers to take advantage of. For example, our much improved networking APIs will make it possible to build new apps, from multiplayer games to enterprise collaboration apps. AIR is now even more tightly integrated with the operating system, including better interaction with the file system, detecting mounting and unmounting of volumes, improved printing APIs, support for native installers and, of course, one of our most request features, support for integrating native code with your application using the NativeProcess API. http://www.adobe.com/products/air/features/
