ReadWriteWeb and the AIR Team Blog both have some info on Cyn.in‘s new desktop client. Cyn.in is an enterprise 2.0 collaboration suite that comes in a variety of installation and hosting modes. It’s kind of a combination of wikis, Twitter, and SharePoint – all geared at an organization. I got a demo last night and I’d love to see this used at Adobe.
But the coolest thing is their desktop client. As far as functionality there isn’t anything groundbreaking about it, but it integrates very nicely with the full Cyn.in stack. What’s great is the polish and UI design they put into it. The application is very elegantly skinned and they’ve made sure the preferences for things like alerts and “always on top” are easily accessible. It’s one of the best examples I’ve seen of AIR because it brings the full functionality of the backend system into a desktop client for ease of use and tracking. It’s unobtrusive and simple to use, and they made it look really good. I encourage you to check out the screenshots on their blog.
