Vowl is a small Mac application that displays random pictures from the Flickr website as a slideshow based on the provided list of tags. This tool can come in handy if you want to randomly view photos of cats, dogs or whatever category comes through your mind.

After launching, Vowl will start displaying random images containing dogs, cats and chickens in a small window on your desktop (you can make it float above other windows). You can easily change that by accessing the "Preferences" menu and adding any desired tag or removing the ones already there.

In addition, if you are not happy with the default delay between the photos, Vowl allows to modify it to any desired value in a matter of seconds.

Vowl comes with a simple and minimalistic interface and the absence of complicated menus or settings keeps the job of randomly displaying photos from the Flickr website as easy as possible.

Overall, if you are ever in need of a small and easy-to-use Mac application that can help your easily view random Flickr photos based on the provided tags, then the lightweight Vowl is a good choice.
