Banish your browser with innovative Adobe AIR apps

These 11 cross-platform apps based on AIR technology will help you streamline your YouTube experience, track client time accurately, stitch photos into one panoramic shot, and much more.

Top 11 Adobe AIR Apps



Adobe AIR adds support for hundreds of cool, cross-platform apps. And it no longer matters whether you're using a Mac, a Windows PC, a Linux machine, or a mobile device — AIR works with them all.

But, despite AIR's impressive ability to blur the line between your desktop and the Web, AIR apps are by no means Web-only. In fact, some of them have nothing to do with the Web at all.

In this slideshow, we take a gander at 11 of the coolest Adobe AIR apps around, an elite collection made all the more admirable by the apps' price, which is free.

To get started using any AIR application, simply download and install AIR from Adobe. Once you've done that, downloading and opening an AIR app on your desktop will trigger the standard AIR installer — think of these files as traditional .msi or .exe setup applications, except that AIR handles the installation.

To make finding links to the downloads mentioned in this story more convenient, we've assembled a complete collection of the AIR app download links for this slide showhttp://thedesktube.com/v on a single page.

Let's begin our AIR app tour with DeskTube, which makes YouTube a much more pleasant place to visit. Just click slide 2.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
