Do you want to take a bomb and destroy the whole of Flickr? Well, no luck then, but if you want a cool way to navigate through your pics and even download them, Destroy Flickr is a great Adobe Air based application to try.
Once you enter and verify your information, you can immediately access some basic information about your profile, latest added, and whole photo database. You can choose to view a load of your photos on one page, or just go one by one. A skew is randomly applied to each pic, which some people will find cool (I do), others won't be thrilled, but it's small enough not to matter if you don't like it.
What I love about Destroy Flickr is that it gives you an easy way to download an upload files. Just punch up the upload menu at the bottom, or drag and drop pics into the download box in the corner. It also syncs to your account with the push of a button, so if you upload stuff from the main page you can still quickly refresh.
You can also add more profiles and seamlessly navigate between them, reaching all the functions for both accounts. You can view your friends' photos, take a look at the interestingness, in other words you can use it to discover as well. Overall I'm quite pleased with this app, if you need a change from Flickr, it may be the place to go.
Update: The program is no longer available. We have removed the link from the article and suggest you use a different service. There is a Destroy the Web extension for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome which you can use to destroy any website on the Internet.
