What’s wrong with SaaS apps built in Flex?
Posted by Alex Chriss on December 8, 2008
Since we chose a Flex Framework to integrate with the Intuit Partner Platform, I’ve heard from a handful of developers and end-users that Flex-based apps can’t be successful. Apps built in Flex are uncomfortable, too non-conformist, too blurry, etc etc, for some users. Jane McCarty just posted saying:
I kind of like apps built in Flex. I agree that they don’t look like a traditional “HTML” web apps, but that works for me in certain situations. To me, they’re sexy and fast and work like a real app should – they feel like an app, not just a browser…And the more I play with AIR apps such as TweetDeck and our upcoming AIR communication app from Intuit, the more I really like both Flex and Air. What are the best examples of all-Flex apps that you use?
