flickr

Some viewed it as inevitable that Yahoo would flip the switch for both Facebook and Google sign-in options to be disabled in favor of its own account system. The popular photo sharing service offers a solid platform for hobbyists to upload and share snaps they've captured with smartphones and/or more professional setups. If you access Flickr through Facebook or Google, you'll soon be prompted to create a new Yahoo account.

While Flickr’s competitor, 500px, has beautiful applications for both Windows Phone and Windows 8; Flickr themselves have yet to deliver to the Windows Store and the last update to their Windows Phone application was pushed out in March of 2012.

However, to fill the void of an official Flickr application on the store for Windows 8, we have set out to find the best third party app and to see if any of them has what it takes to provide the ultimate Flickr viewing experience. After shuffling through collections of terribly mediocre Flickr applications, which trust me that some of them are simply terrible, we stumbled upon “Flickrology” for Windows 8.

Follow us as we explore the app, and decide for yourself if the full version’s price tag is worth $2.49 USD.

You would think with devices like the Lumia 1020, Lumia 1520 and even the venerable Lumia 92x, a photography site like Flickr would be catering heavily towards Windows Phone users. Instead, we have an app that was last updated almost two years ago from the Yahoo! owned shutterbug site. An app that is plagued with performance and login issues, giving users a subpar experience.

Now, Flickr through their support forums have confirmed that they are purposefully giving the cold shoulder to Windows Phone. If you were expecting a massive update waiting in the wings from the company, you can now stop.

2flicka is one of those Windows Phone apps that's worth downloading if you're into photography and make use of the Flickr web service from Yahoo!.

Today, we're looking at version 1.3, which includes video capture and playback.

If you're not familiar with 2flicka, it's an unofficial Flickr app for Windows Phone. The app itself hasn't been live for very long, but already we're looking at yet another update. Previously, the developer added group support, galleries and a few other goodies, but today 2flicka has had a few fixes implemented, along with a more polished dark theme. Snap on past the break for the full read through.

If the official Flickr Windows Phone app isn't doing much for you, take a gander at Viewr for Flickr.

Viewr for Flickr is a Windows Phone 8 photography app that is straight forward means to accessing Flickr while on the go.  The app has a clean layout where you can view and share Flickr images as well as upload images to your account.

There is some room for improvement but from uploading to viewing to sharing, Viewr for Flickr lays everything out nicely and is well worth trying.

Indulged brings Flickr to life on Windows Phone 8

Being the OS in third place means Windows Phone is slowly gaining major apps from big brands and companies. If those apps aren’t “officially” on Windows Phone the development community steps up and produces solid third-party offerings. And often those third-party apps are equal or better than the official apps.

Flickr is one of those apps where the official offering is lagging behind what the community deserves from an app. So join me in welcoming Indulged to the Windows Phone platform. It’s a brand new app for us that is poised to be an excellent way to experience Flickr on Windows Phone. Let’s check it out.

If you've tried to log into your Flickr account from the Windows Phone Flickr app you're probably receiving an error message that reads,

"Unable to reach Flickr login services. Press Back to try again."

The error message is rather persistent, no matter how many times you press the Back Button and try again.

The problem? It's likely an API change that wasn't reflected in the app.  The issue seems to be limited to logging into your Flickr account from apps such as the Flickr app and Pixl.  In checking some of the apps that pull images from Flickr, but don't have the account log-in feature, such as Photostream and Flickr Wallpapers, they are still able to pull pictures from Flickr.

Pixl is a beautiful Flickr app for Windows Phone

Odds are you have a 500px or Flickr account if you enjoy photography. Doesn’t matter if the shots are coming from a DSLR or Micro Four Thirds camera, most photogs are part of some online community. Flickr is arguably the most well-known of those online communities, and while it may have grown stale in features the past few years, it’s still on top for most people. If you’re among those heavy Flickr users, you might want to check out Pixl for Windows Phone.

There's a new Flickr page dedicated to the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone's camera.  Created by professional photographer Alex Efimoff, the page highlights photos taken with the Lumia 920's Pureview Camera.  The photos range from low light shots to macro shots take with the 920.

The images appear to be a collection of test shots taken by Nokia as well as images captured by Efimoff with the Lumia 920. The Flickr page also has an invitation to add your own photos and video clips taken with the Lumia 920.

Windows Phone App Review: Pickr

Pickr is a photography app for your Windows Phone that lets you browse and search for images that are posted to Flickr. It's from the same developers that brought us Video Diaries and isn't a bad image surfing app.

Pickr offers pages to view images uploaded to Flickr for the past seven days, which keywords are hot for today, and a favorites page to pin your favorite images to. At the bottom of the Pickr's pages is a magnifying glass button to let you search for images by keyword or by photographer.
