Flickr Toys

toysAs many of you know, Flickr has one of the most extensive web APIs out there today. In geekless terms this means that they provide tools for allowing programmers to access their system in order to build upon it and create great new applications based on Flickr. There are so many great web apps and mashups that leverage the Flickr API that it will be the subject of many posts to come on Flickr Hacks, but I wanted to let you know about a few of them now:

FD's Flickr Toys is a collection of some very cool Flickr tools. I've spent alot of time playing around here. Make sure to check out the Photo Wall and if you are in the market for a digital camera, check out the Top Digital Cameras tool which will tell you which cameras are the most popular for taking pictures on Flickr.

Fastr is a very addictive game that where you are pitted against other players by trying to guess which tag that a group of pictures represents. Fastr also comes in widget form so you can put it on your myspace page or blog.

Badgr is a great little widget for displaying your flickr picks on your blog. You can read more about it on my sister blog, Myspace Hacks.

Splashr is a great little tool for creating cool presentations and slideshows with your flickr pictures.

... and there are many many more to come!
