I was visiting my parents last weekend. After helping them get connected to broadband, the first thing I did was set up slickr. It’s a great app that turns the Windows screensaver into a flickr viewer. It automatically downloads pictures from flickr in the background and then rotates through them.
Whenever me or my brothers uploads a picture to flickr, my parents can see it without doing a thing. No downloading, no visiting Web sites – it just happens.
I’ve been using slickr for several months on my PC to stay up-to-date on far flung friends.
Slickr dramatically increases the value of flickr to me. And flickr didn’t have to pay to develop it.
