Flex 2 for Mobile Marketing

Another example of Flex 2 getting out to the public.

The gofreeSMS service uses a Flex 2 app as its primary web interface. Seems like it’s still pretty early as not all the features are implemented and I found some typos, but looks cool nonetheless.

The same company has a platform for pushing advertising and it uses Flex 2 as well. You can see screenshots on their website.

Monitor ColdFusion with Flex 2

Not an endorsement since I don’t use ColdFusion and therefore can’t really speak to the quality, but major props for the user interface choice 🙂
