AIR Out Your Desktop with Adobe
Twhirl is one of the dozens of Twitter clients available. Many people find Twitter's Web interface much less useful than using a dedicated client. I'm in that boat. Twhirl has lots of seemingly simple features that make it a great way to interface with the Twitter universe.
Many users prefer another AIR-based Twitter app, known as TweetDeck. As both are free, and both work well under Linux, so I suppose it's only fair to mention both. Twhirl is just my personal preference.
Twhirl—works under Linux AIR 1.1 Beta: yes.
DestroyFlickr is a program that lets you manage your Flickr stream with an interface that resembles a light table. It's a convenient way to use Flickr.
Another application that currently works under Linux is Flump. It is much more simplistic in its interface, but it can upload and download photos.
DestroyFlickr—works under Linux AIR 1.1 Beta: yes.
Snackr is an RSS ticker that runs along the border of your screen. Clicking on a story opens it in a preview window, which gives you the option to open the actual page in a browser.
If you would prefer to have a cute fuzzy puppy read your RSS feeds to you while he rolls around on your desktop, you might prefer Pet-It RSS News by zerofractal.
Snackr—works under Linux AIR 1.1 Beta: yes.
Snippage allows you to select a specific section of a Web site and make it display in a widget on your desktop. The Web site can update automatically, so if the page changes, so does the widget.
Snippage—works under Linux AIR 1.1 Beta: yes.
If you look at Google Analytics information very often, this application will save you time. Its functionality isn't much greater than visiting Google's Web site, but the speed and convenience is nice.
Google Analytics Reporting Suite—works under Linux AIR 1.1 Beta: yes.
