Flickr has an open Application Programming Interface (API for short). This means that anyone can write their own program to remix Flickr data (like photos, video, tags, profiles or groups) in new and different ways.
The App Garden
The App Garden is a place where developers can showcase the applications they've created, and where you can find new ways to explore Flickr. The App Garden isn't a place for your personal portfolio, group website, business services, or for any applications which you have not created yourself.
How to Create an App for Flickr
First, you'll need an API key. Each key has an app page that is private by default. When you're ready to showcase your app, fill out the app page to let people know what it's about.
When your app is ready for the public, change it from private to public to make it searchable in the App Garden. Your app will need a title, description, screenshot, a working URL for the "Visit website" button, and at least 1 tag before you can make it public.
Disabled API key
After you've made the changes, please write in to get help letting us know what you have changed, so it can be re-reviewed.
Can I make an app page without an API key?
Not at this time. There is only one app page for each API key, and it's not possible to create an app page without a key. If you have multiple applications using the same API key, you'd need to use a separate key to showcase each on it's own app page.
