Macromedia Central, and Synchronized Applications

Published on April 24, 2003

Macromedia has a presentation (link no longer works: about the upcoming Macromedia Central platform.

The presentation notes that there are 750,000 Flash developers, and there is a $2.2B market for these "Premium Internet Content Applications" (Jupiter Research). I hope all the flash developers don't work on these because that only leaves each developer with just under $3000 :).

I'm interested to get a look at the API that central will provide developers. One thing I'm particularly interested in these days is applications that synchronize data. I use at least 3 different computers on a regular basis (work, laptop, home pc), should I have to maintain 3 different address books? Definitely not. I think Macromedia Central will be a good platform for developing such applications, though from what I understand creating this synchronization would still be on the shoulders of the app developers. (By the way I do have an app for keep my address book sync'd, I use IntelliSync for Yahoo, it sync's your Outlook and Yahoo! address books. It doesn't work perfectly however)
