Google Analytics in AIR
This unofficial AIR version of Google Analytics delivers the functionality of browser-based Google Analytics but with greater
usability and a richer experience. If you haven’t heard of AIR (once named “Apollo”), it’s a platform developed by Adobe that enables web developers to deploy their web services outside of the browser so they function more like traditional applications.
This is the first AIR program that I have tested that really gets me excited about the platform. As a beta program, it’s not perfect (I ran into a few errors), but overall it has been executed very well. It’salso nice to see such a fully-functional program.
Check out Google Analytics AIR beta. If you don’t already have AIR, you need to download it to use any AIR-base applications (as with Flash).
Both Adobe and Google are involved in this project now. Adobe has included the application in its Showcase program, and
Google product managers and engineers are providing him with feedback and helping him make it more secure.
The beta 2 of Google Analytics AIR will focus on improved international support and the integration of AdWords.
