    AIR as exclusive UI for native application.

    MachineCheck
      Has anyone investigated the possibility of using AIR as the exclusive user interface for a native application? Is this feasible/advisable?

      The point is that developing a great user interface on one platform does not necessarily look/feel great on another, so if I use AIR as the UI then I get consistency of presentation no matter the platform.

      Are there any hooks in AIR that would allow it to communicate with a native application (beside sockets)? Would sockets do the trick?

      Do you know of anyone that has developed a sample application that uses AIR in this way?

      Are you aware of a protocol (socket messaging [not X Windows]) on which such a user interface could be built?

      Any ideas on the subject would be welcome.


      Thanks.
