Flash/Flex Applications

Posted 09 September 2008 - 06:47 PM

I've been toying with Flex builder, and i've recently run out of ideas on things to build.,.. I've built a partial Chat system (mod/admin isn't complete), as well as some other general things (mp3 player, video player).

What would you guys consider a "good" application, and what would you expect it to have? (IE: table names, options to change, etc.).

Basically, i'm looking for a list of something to make >.>

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Do you mean 'good' in those applications or just in general?

I just mean a program in General...

Like right now, i'm making an Image Gallery (here)..

I'm thinking of opening a Flex Store in January if I can create some good applications to sell... I also have a chat system, but it needs a few changes to it...

So basically something that could have a decent application in the website world (like a chat or an image gallery do)

Um, that's a bit general, but I'll give it a shot:

1) A clean look - I think all programs should be clear and easy to use UI.

2) Make it do its job well - If it's a a gallery, don't make into a half-ass project! It should do its job(aswell as some other nice, non-essential features) and do it well enough so people say "Damn! I'm gonna tell everyone I now about this and the things it can do!".

3) Good help files - Always make a help/support section so idiots won't have to bother you and they'll have another reason to tells others.

4) Plan before you make - before you make a program, plan what you want to happen after you've finished the first version. With this, you can code the program and after when you want to upgrade/update it, you won't have to do some crazy re-writting were you have to change several hundred lines.


There are others, but those were the first that came to mind.

Well, they're all really good points, But i meant things I could sell... For example, as long as I make an installation script for my chat, i'll be able to sell it and users can easily install it...

Same thing with the Image Gallery
