Ok, so the Facebook folks have cleared up the problems I was having publishing an app I wrote, and I thought I’d do a quick writeup to announce it. It’s a relatively simple app for viewing your friends’ albums. I had one main goal:
Facebook is particularly frustrating for me in that every photo is on its own web page. It’s good because they can load new ads for you, but awful for a person who want to take a quick look through an album. So I put together an app I named SlickPhoto:
I wrote this app in Flex, which means it’s a Flash app. Now, it started with a single goal, but I ended up with some features that are worth noting:
- Download any Facebook album as a zip file – Good for Facebook stalkers
- Slideshows – View any album as a slideshow
- Full Screen Mode – Both browsing and slideshows can be viewed in full screen mode.
- Link to albums – You can create a link that will load directly into an album you want to view in SlickPhoto. You can email this link to your friends so they can go directly into SlickPhoto to look at your album.
