Once again I have been impressed by AIR - Adobe Integrated Runtime. I can see massive advantages of an app environment like this even if I have some requirements that are not available.
Anyway, we use Google Analytics for client projects and our own websites and I always found the interface a little bit confusing. The left hand menu was structured Marketing, Developer etc and I had no idea where anything was.
The AIR Application Google Analytics Suite solves this problem by structuring the left menu under the categories:
- Traffic Sources
The interface is beautiful and importantly its snappy! I love the fact you can have multiple tabs open! One gripe would be to have some persistance in the application to remember open tabs, date range picked etc.
I really really wish AIR supported the following:
- Right Click Menus
- System Notification Area Support (Minimise to Tray) - I really want this!!!
If the above was available I will ditch C# .NET as my language of choice for writing the Teamwork Project Manager Desktop Application. I could have a truely cross platorm desktop app.
There is one thing I am unclear about and hoping somebody can answer.....what browser is used on Mac and Linux inside AIR?? I am guessing the Windows AIR uses IE.
