A great article appeared in InfoWorld and PC World last week discussing the eBay desktop application effectiveUI is building on the Apollo platform. Sean and I were interviewed by Elizabeth Montalbano, from IDG. She was an interesting reporter, very “matter of fact”. She conceived the story, called for interviews, interviewed, wrote the article and published it in less than a day!
Some of the things she missed in the article was Apollo’s ability to access the file system and display system notifications. The article mentions “offline” capabilities a bit, but I think it does not do it justice. The ability to allow users to disconnect from the internet and still interact with an “online” application is the feature that gets our customers most excited about the Apollo platform.
