Flickr-based endless screensaver "Loopy"

Loopy is the desktop screensaver application that is looping and showing the pictures at random for good. The most imperactive key ingredient of this application is the integration between the flash technology and RSS, that is provided by Flickr.
Because of Flickr's systems, loopy definitely became the fun stage to constantly show a great variety of pictures that people we don't know actually uploaded before. That's why loopy is not only a flash Application, but also, an application to make users enjoy the certain moment seeing a lot of pictures somebody took.

The concept of Loopy
The most interesting part of Loopy is that we can randomly see the newest pictures which people all over the world uploaded and if you want to check them more, just click the thumbnails and go to Flickr's pages.


(August 31, 2005)
After we introduced Loopy on FlickrCentral, we got a very valuable feedback.

The concept is great and the design is good too, BUT: it doesn't credit the photographers or provide links to the images - that's a violation of the users' copyright, a violation of the Flickr TOS and generally poor form. If this was addressed I could see promoting it on Flickr - otherwise all I can say is "bad!" :)

Oops! Thanks for pointing that out, Stewart!
We have made changes to launch the photo page when you click a thumbnail on Loopy.
If you have downloaded older version of Loopy, please overwrite it with the (new an improved!) one that's available now.
