Created to grab random images their server to cure your boredom, Buamai is a image browser for the iPhone created by Michael Paul Young. More of a personal archive by a handful of contributors than a community like dropular and ffffound, images found on Buamai are mainly of Graphic Design, Art and Architecture nature. In addition to Buamai.com you can also browse Flickr images by switching from Buamai to Flickr in the settings panel. Slightly skeptical of the shake to reload feature butÂ Buamai’s gorgeous minimal interface should keep you busy for a while nevertheless,Â flicking through the wonderful selection of images on Buamai.com + download for your own archive or iPhone wallpaper.
Random Image - Using the quick and easy random image feature, you can sit for hours loading a diverse collection of surprising images one by one. An easy way to cure boredom while mobile and waiting.
Visual Search -Â Visual Search (Adlib) is an Buamai original that can help assistant you with new visual ideas for that next big project. Just type your projects slogan, story or short text brief and see what results come back visually!
Destroy -Â Using the Destroy feature you can rip and shred a random selection of over 100 images into one intense grid artwork. Keep clicking to see how many different and colorful variations you can create.
Flickr -Â If you would like to have access to a larger source of imagery, the Buamai application gives you the option to search and load from Flickr instead. This gives you access to endless numbers of more amazing imagery.
Developer: Michael Paul Young
p.s. Interestingly,Â Michael is also preparingÂ Dropular support in the new version of Buamai. It would be interesting to see if the app update gets approval considering that the nativeÂ Dropular app got refused.Â I am wondering if Andreas (dropular) produced a flickr browser instead, would Apple approve it. The answer is probably yes as he is not expected to be able to filter out the content. Just because he is directly linked to Dropular, Apple expects him to. Anyway..
