Adobe Engage: Scrybe

Scrybe generated a lot of chatter with its YouTube video showing off the features. That video is featured on their front page and Faizan Buzdar is going to show us around. Scrybe is a calenar, todo, contact manager - a productivity suite.

I apologize for the lack of pictures. I don't have time to insert logos and I didn't bring a camera. There are people taking photos so I'll update these with links to those tomorrow or later today.

Scrybe generated a lot of chatter with its YouTube video showing off the features. That video is featured on their front page and Faizan Buzdar is going to show us around. Scrybe is a calenar, todo, contact manager - a productivity suite. They looked at ease of development, reach, and ease of development. Comparing those three, they decided that Flash was better than Ajax or .NET

Scrybe is built for Flash 8, and they had to do some code workarounds to get the offline feature to work using Local Storage Objects (LSO). I've heard a lot more recently about LSOs and how they can be used for a lot of interesting things. This offline capability is one of them. One of the cool features of Scrybe is their "PaperSync Wizard". So if you use Scrybe, you can take your schedule and print it off. Sounds easy, but they've put a lot of work into it so you can print as a booklet or easily fold it for your pocket. They also put a lot of time into timezones, and changing time on a calendar event incorporates a map and clock, so you are interacting with the content in a helpful way.

The application itself looks great. Useful transitions, a clean user interface; perfect for a productivity application. You can take a regular excel list and quickly add those to a To Do list. The bookmarklet feature for Scrybe helps you save pages as you browse the web. You can build up a collection of bookmarks and view them from within the app , label them and make annotations to them.
