Over a year ago I had the pleasure of working on the team that created Drop.io. I had built the original Flash uploaders. Since then, the Drop.io team has been hard at work and just last week released a new version of the site with a TON of great new features. My absolute favorite is the new Drop.io API. Getting a FREE key is simple and very quick (possibly faster than getting a FREE drop)! With only an hour into it, I’ve already managed to move, delete, and add assets quickly and painlessly. I can’t wait to get some more time into this and build out a drop manager in Adobe AIR.
Keep checking back for more status updates, I hope to have the Drop.io Desktop Manager available soon!
The June 2008 edition of Adobe EDGE has a great article on geocoding. Geocoding is getting popular with the release of Yahoo Maps, Mapquest, and Google Maps APIs. Suddenly any user can apply for one of those keys and start mapping locations on their site or even using those APIs to get geo location data to then use within their own mapping engine. That is where this example comes in. Adobe has written up a great article on getting started with using the Yahoo Maps API to get the longitude and latitude of a location, then converting that to 3D coordinates to place on a globe built in Papervision. The example is simple, but feels good and responsive.
