Introduction to Flickrbits
About ten years ago, when I was a keen and enthusiastic user of Flickr, I liked to explore and use a number of extensions to the great photo sharing site for my own uses. As time went on I realised that it would be extremely useful if there was a list of all of the different apps, plugins, browser extensions, official applications etc. etc. and so Flickrbits was born.
For a while it was a popular and well visited site. I invited developers to submit their own Flickr-extending creations and added them as they came in. Flickr even welcomed the site as a sort of unofficial-but-welcome addition to the family and listed it in their documentation as a useful place to find things.
Time moved on. I got busy. Flickrbits got neglected. Then, recently, I was looking for something in a backup, and found the scripts and the database backup. So, here it is.
I have no doubt a lot of these links no longer work so I invite you to let me know if that is indeed the case. I will make a half-hearted go at correcting them or deleting them, whichever is more appropriate.

We Map Flickr
Mixes Flickr with Google Maps
Where? What? When?
A small web app that uses new Flickr API methods to show where in the world photos have been taken. It will show photos with a particular tag, or, if you authenticate, photos from your friends, contacts, or yourself. The size of the circle on any given place indicates how many photos were taken there.
You can click on a circle to see photos taken in that area, or zoom in if there are lots of overlapping areas.
A Konfabulator widget for browsing Flickr from your desktop.
ZoneTag can automatically tag your photos with the location, based on the cell tower, in which they were taken. The location of the cell tower is not known until our user community updates the city, state, or zip code of their photos on Flickr. ZoneTag is then able to map the cell tower to the location. Now available for Motorola and Nokia.
