Adobe makes Dreamweaver, one of the most popular web development tools, but it is not as comprehensive as Flash for building applications. One area where Dreamweaver falls short is animation. Enter Adobe Edge.
The animation capabilities are very similar to Flash; however, the user interface is less like Flash and more like Adobe’s video editing applications like Premiere and After Effects. UI aside, the concept is very similar to Flash and Flash users will pick it up quickly. Just like Flash, the results can be very impressive. In fact, I tested some of the following samples on mobile devices and the performance was excellent too.
Samples that were created with Adobe Edge:
- Ferris Wheel and Roller Coaster (By Sarah Hunt)
- Animated Banner Ad
- Sunshine and Sailing (By Sarah Hunt)
