Good luck finding something that works today though.
Most of the applications there will return an error during installation. They all seem to not like AIR 1.0 and work only with the AIR beta versions.
I was interested in a couple of Twitter clients, the Google Analytics client, the Meebo client... But only the Google Analytics application would actually work - a very good and clean user interface and no it's not a Google product but a third party creation.
It would be nice if Adobe had worked with these developers to at least have the featured applications updated by launch time.
And how come the Adobe's own Adobe Media Player is not even listed in the marketplace? It was a cool application while in beta. And even its own software won't run on AIR 1.0.
Actually it would be nicer if Adobe had a link to Adobe AIR on its frontpage with their other products too:
I am not too pessimistic about Adobe AIR though. It's got the potential to be a winner, like Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash. Microsoft Silverlight may be getting behind now (was it ever ahead?)...
