The Social service streamlines integration between Web applications and 14 leading social networks using Facebook Connect, Sign-in with Twitter, MySpaceID and LinkedIn.

Andrew Shorten: In the Flex 4 SDK, we’ve implemented a completely new component and skinning architecture (Spark) that supports a level of expressiveness in RIAs not seen previously.

In Flash Builder 4, the team has made it easier than ever to connect to back-end services with a complete set of data centric development features, enabled new design and development workflows with Flash Catalyst and Flash Professional, as well as enhancing the core code development features that are essential to developer productivity

Adobe Flash Platform

Flash Platform 2009: Year in Review #1

This has been a huge year for the Flash Platform and with 2009 drawing to a close we thought it would be great to go back and look at some of the things that happened this year. I’m going to break it down into 3 parts this week and next, first talking about some of the applications that you all have created. Second I’m going to focus on some of the news we made around the Open Screen Project and our partners. Last I’ll talk about some of the technical enhancements and innovation around our tools, the runtimes, and our new service initiatives.

The strongest part of our technology stack has always been you, the community. It’s the applications and content that you create which keeps pushing the entire web forward and makes our tools and technology shine. There are millions of you who have helped make the Flash Platform the absolute best way to create innovative and cutting-edge applications and in 2009 we had some great examples of that.

  • London Borough of Southwark - A great enterprise example, Southwark created the One Touch system that made it easier for citizens to access government services. One Touch was built with Adobe LiveCycle ES and deployed on the Flash Platform.
  • Marathon Technologies - Built an RIA management console that shows how RIAs can make it easier and faster for customers to get things done.
  • Tweetdeck - A great example of how Adobe AIR lets web developers take advantage of new services, Tweetdeck is the most popular desktop application for Twitter and raised over $2 million in funding this year.
  • FLARToolKit - Augmented Reality became one of 2009’s buzzwords and FLARToolKit created bySaqoosha, a Japanese Flash developer, was a big reason for that. It helped spawn great demos like GE’s Ecomagination and John Mayer’s Heartbreak Warefare video which debuted at MAX 2009.
  • TimesReader and GlobeReader - Digital publishing had a wild year in 2009 and these two applications, built on Adobe AIR, gave us a look at what the future of the newspaper might look like.
  • SlideRocket - An early adopter of the Flash Platform, SlideRocket makes it easy to create great looking presentations on the web. They raised an additional $5 million this year and showed how beautiful and functional a Flex user interface can be.
  • Flash Games - We started talking a lot more about the Flash gaming community this year and it’s going to be a hot topic in 2010. As Adobe brings Flash to more mobile devices it’s going to open up new options for deployment for Flash game developers. Continuity is one standout example of why Flash is still the best platform for game creators.

There are literally thousands of applications that were developed this year on top of the Flash Platform. You can see more examples of what people are building over at the Flash Platform site. If we missed your favorite, let us know in the comments below.

Tomorrow we’ll talk about the Open Screen Project and some of the news it made this year.
