Social Eye Candy for your phone!
Social Media Ticker is a Slide Show display using your Social feeds in an animated 3D display. Photos, Posts, News and more.
When your phone is docked or otherwise idle, Social Media Ticker automatically keeps up with your Facebook feed, Twitter stream, the hottest videos on YouTube, what's new on Flickr, photos from your phone, the latest News headlines, eBay auctions and more. All in an an interactive 3D scrolling, Ticker-Tape display.
Try the new mash-up that uses Twitter Trending topics to search for content on Flickr, eBay, YouTube, Hacker News and more. Be prepared for some oddball results. What do you get from Flickr, eBay, etc. if something like "Finn" is trending on Twitter? There's no telling. Give it a try.
Inspired by the AppleTV Screensaver
Set your phone down and watch your feeds scroll by. Tap an item to stop it from scrolling. Tap again to open up the post, picture or movie.
Ideal for use as a screensaver or a slideshow while you're listening to music!
