|Working with the Adobe AIR product is not only fun, but it allows you to create some nice and useful utility applications. Here is one I created that helps expectant mothers and fathers learn more about their pregnancy. It is a simple application, at this point, to demonstrate a few Flex-based controls (the DateChooser, the ColorPicker, and the HTML control) used to create a desktop application to track significant events in a woman's pregnancy. By selecting your baby's due date and the background color you wish to use (pink if you hope for a girl; blue if you hope for a boy), you can learn all about the progress that your baby is making (requires an internet connection).
