Adobe has revealed that multiple applications built using its Adobe AIR development platform will be on show at this week's Adobe Mac conference.

Companies including AOL, eBay, Nickelodeon, QVC, Yahoo and Nasdaq will demonstrate their AIR-constructed applications at the event.

"We're thrilled to see that Adobe AIR is gaining widespread momentum across a variety of industries and customers," said John Brennan, senior vice president, platform business unit at Adobe.

"Applications built on Adobe AIR combine the flexibility of the web with the power of the desktop, which enables companies developing applications on Adobe AIR to better engage with their customers, partners and employees."

AOL will give its AIR-built Top 100 Music Videos application its first public outing at the show. This application lets users browse and play the top 100 music videos from AOL Music. Its features include solutions for bookmarking, personalisation, and sharing of video assets.

Also today, eBay will introduce the public beta version of eBay Desktop, formerly project San Dimas.
