Flex/AIR and PHP apps

I want to maintain a list with RIA applications created using Flex and PHP (could be web apps or desktop apps). While this list is unlikely to be a complete list, I hope there will be enough applications to serve as a reference point or to inspire any PHP programmer.

If you developed such applications or you know one, please post a comment here and I will add it to my list. Thanks!

Disclaimer: it is possible that I mislabeled some applications as using PHP on the server. Basically, I used a Network Sniffer :D

  2. Hi Mihai,

    A big thank you for the great presentation you did about Flex and AIR today at the phpGG Frontend Special. I really liked our talk and you inspired me to check out your blog. Som great stuff here and especially this flex applicatiuon list as they can inspire me with some ideas.

    Thx a million,

    Nick Belhomme

  3. Flex and PHP work very well together. I am just starting.
    The above apps are great, I have some too but no where that nice or complex.
    Thank You for having a spot to check out some great work.
    Thank you.

  4. @Sebastian

    This is so cool. I will add it to my list tomorrow. Any plan to create an AIR app?

  5. @Mihai

    Not yet, first we’d like to internationalize and localize the app. And first of all there’s still some bug fixing todo ;) We already created an Air application to administrate our webservice and Air looks pretty cool to us…

  6. Hi,
    We’ve built a flex application called Newton. Newton is recruiting software aka applicant tracking system. We sell the application commercially mainly to small and medium sized business.

    There is a web demo on the site if you want to take a look at the app.

  7. Hi Mihai,

    The Salsa Beat Machine is a Flex application that lets you explore the Salsa music by interacting with the musical instruments, turning them on/off, changing the musical pattern they play, changing the key of playing (in case of Piano/bass), varying the tempo and much more.

    One of the neat features added in the last few months is the ability to save the machines you created to the server. This is accomplished by using a PHP backend on the server side.

    I hope you can add it to your list:


    Have a great year!

  10. Salut, Mihai! Ai idee insa, cum as putea folosi PHP, chiar si prin jQuery doar prin Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5?

    Hi, Mihai! Have you got any idea about how could I use PHP, and with jQuery, only with Adobe Flash Professional CS5.5?

  11. Hey Victor,

    I’m not sure I understand your question. Usually, you use jQuerry in pure HTML apps. How do you want to use them together?
