10 AIR apps you can't live without

The session I presented at BarCampBrighton 08 this weekend was entitled ’10 AIR apps you can’t live without’ and aimed to highlight some of the great applications that have been built using AIR that you might actually use on a daily basis.

The presentation is below, together with links to all the AIR applications that I demonstrated – hopefully you’ll find some of the 10 useful; let me know if there are other apps you’re using that you think should be on the list.
