Oh, now that’s interesting: Flickroom is an AIR application that uses a Lightroom-style shell to display photos. According to the site, the app:
“provides the rich browsing experience Flickr users have long deserved. The dark theme ensures that your photographs look better than ever before! You can now receive instant notifications for any activity on your photostream, upload photos by just drag-and-drop, add comments, mark faves, add notes, tweet about your photos and also view all info associated with an image from within the app.”
I haven’t gotten to play with it extensively, but so far I’m finding it fun. (By the way, if you’d like to create something similar using Adobe Flex, check out Juan Sanchez’s LR-style Flex theme.) [Via]

I gave it a test run yesterday and also found it pretty fun. It runs pretty smoothly and is very easy on the eyes.
Just found out that Flickroom has released an update and it looks to be very promising. Details can be seen at – http://flickroom.org/blog.
It even makes use of AFCS (Adobe Flash Collaboration Servie) for a live chat room for Flickr users.
1. Using the lightroom style format, it only shows the latest one photograph from your contact.
2. It doesn’t show the comments or the description of the photo.
3. Once you comment, there doesn’t appear to be a way to edit your comment.
Have been trying to install Flickroom but it keeps coming up with this message”Sorry, an error has occurred. The application could not be installed because the installer file is damaged. Try obtaining a new installer file from the application author.” I would appreciate input particularly as I had had Flickroom installed earlier.
