Feathers puts it all together in one package — blazing fast GPU powered graphics, an impressive number of skinning options, and an extensible component architecture... to create a smooth and responsive experience.
Dozens of user interface components... for both games and apps.
Built on Starling Framework — fast, hardware accelerated graphics!
Includes complete offline documentation and code examples.
Example themes for quick skinning.
Works with the Adobe AIR SDK, the Apache Flex SDK, and Animate CC.
Use MXML instead of ActionScript to create user interfaces and layouts — faster.
Avoid event listener boilerplate with data binding.
Includes its own MXML compiler that natively supports the Starling display list.
Compatible with popular ActionScript IDEs, including Flash Builder and IntelliJ IDEA.
The Feathers SDK Manager makes merging Adobe AIR and other dependencies easy.
Thanks to support from companies like Adobe and YETi CGI, Feathers provides what professional developers expect from a quality library. You get frequent, sizeable updates, detailed documentation and examples, and first-class support in the developer forums. Best of all, it's open source.

I do not trust in any other tool to do 2D fast development considering that the UI has to be retina enabled, responsive and with transitions and animations to be programmed in very short development times.
I started a tablet application based on Starling and Feathers, and these libraries save me a lot of time and pain in the development process. The app runs very smoothly on all platforms, including Android tablets, iPad, and Windows 8 Pro tablets. That's awesome.
