Share News with ShareFire

My colleague Dan Koestler and I just released a new version of ShareFire (formerly known as Apprise), a news aggregator written for Adobe AIR. ShareFire has several useful features, but what really differentiates it is the ability to share news stories with friends over various social networks right from the application. We currently support sharing via email, AIM, Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, Digg, MySpace, and Newsvine. Another nice feature of ShareFire is that it has been localized into 16 languages which you can switch between dynamically (without having to restart the application or download other versions).

The source code for ShareFire is available on Google Code as well as all the libraries it uses:

  • as3corelib: Contains general utilities for things like date parsing, and working with various file formats.
  • as3localelib: Utilities for helping to localize your Flash applications.
  • as3nativealertlib: Library for creating modal alert windows in AIR.
  • as3syndicationlib: Libraries for parsing all versions of RSS and Atom.
  • as3preferenceslib: Library for managing the storage, retrieval, and encryption of application preferences.
  • as3notificationlib: Library for showing Growl-like alerts on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
  • wimas3: Code for integrating AIM into your Flash applications.
  • Adobe AIR Update Framework: A framework to assist in updating your AIR applications. (This project is now included in the AIR SDK, but it wasn’t at the time ShareFire was started.)

Here’s a screenshot of ShareFire, or for a demonstration, check out the video below. To install ShareFire, check out the ShareFire homepage.

    Great app!! It would be awesome if you could sync all your information to a server, that way you could maintain your rss subscriptions across your work computer/home computer/laptop etc… Better yet the ability to sync it with google reader. Again, great app!
