As Workamajig transitions away from Flash and to its Platinum interface. We have maintained an Adobe AIR version of the classic application built as a backup for the Classic interface. Mainly in case the popular browser all of a sudden stop supporting flash, and your company needs a way to access the Classic interface.
Now we highly recommend you work on Transitioning to Platinum.
It provides the same interface as the desktop version. Unlike the desktop version, Workamajig AIR is not tied to any browser, and any screens that are in still in HTML will open in an AIR HTML window. It runs much like any other installed application on your computer.
