Apollo – I am thinking about it

Techcrunch article on Apollo made me think again about Apollo:-

  • How should Apollo’s security-sandbox look like?
  • What kind of applications, I would target for Apollo?
  • There must be some guidelines/best-practice to make a successful Apollo app? The way we have today for web-apps.
  • There must be application-signing process? Adobe certified Apollo applications? VeriSign certified application? How these things gonna work?
  • Would it be easy to synchronize my different Apollo installations so that I can have same settings (global or application-level)? The way delicious solves problem for bookmarks, something of that sort? May be access to Bluetooth, Network, IR APIs?

Loads of ideas/questions in my mind. I would wait, think, watch and build. Apollo is still under-development.

  • I can’t expect it to have the platform-dependent features Flex lacks. Like DLL comunication. So I don’t think we do need desktop applications
