The BEST photo sharing/storage/community app EVER! 5/5
I’ve been on Flickr for over 8 years and I’ve seen it’s evolution over those years. I don’t exaggerate when I say Flickr is the best app out there for all photographers. You’re given a very generous amount of free upload space (1TB) and unlimited space if you join the yearly subscription. Because of that I’ve started using it as a backup to my backup photo archive. It allows easy full resolution uploads. Besides that, I love the communities that are on Flickr. If there is a type of photography you like or type of camera or any kind of photography process, there is more than likely a community for it. If not you can easily start one. I’ve tried other photography apps but I keep coming back to Flickr. As I write this review, SmugMug just purchased Flickr. I’ve tried SmugMug too but I always felt like it’s focus was to sell you something. I hope SmugMug doesn’t make any drastic changes to this already perfect app!
The best! 5/5
I love the app in all the iOS supported platforms. Very easy to use and the generous storage (1 TB) they offer for free is out of this world.
Lots to love! 5/5
Straight forward app that just works! I wish I could set the cache size but otherwise s 5 star app and service!!
Great app 5/5
By Kandi Warblood
This app is very user friendly and i am able to easily switch accounts and view everyones photos and join groups of interest. The free version does com with some adverts but, they are pretty non evasive compared to other apps. There are quite a few people with pro accounts. I plan on getting for myself soon.
Awful app messed up my phone 1/5
I loved this app! Until I realized it was the reason my phone got so messed up that I had to reset it twice, get a replacement phone, then sit on the phone for over an hour with Apple support! It crashed repeatedly on the diagnostic log and was causing my phone to freeze up and even auto restart itself. Even when not running the app. Someone needs to fix this!!
Love it!! 5/5
It’s pretty good!! 5/5
By Dani Levi
I use Flickr nearly everyday to get my fix of beautiful photos and this app does the trick!
Safesearch Broken 3/5
in the last couple of weeks, the safesearch filter broke. If there is adult rated content that you wish to view, you can not change the settings to turn off the filter and view mature content in the app. Even using the desktop site is painful too
Love it! 5/5
I love this app! The pictures are extremely clear as opposed to other pic apps, you can see so much detail it’s amazing!! The only downfall is I thought there would be more engagement seeing as we are all in the photography genre. Not so much.
Don’t lose your pix 5/5
A great, reliable app to insure your photos live on no matter what.
Great storage app 4/5
Is give this a five-star review if the videos would upload. They seem to upload, but some of them they never seem to process. I’ve put videos on in the past few months that are still unprocessed.
Many notifications 4/5
By Nick in PDX
Warning this app will throw many notifications at you, especially when there is a launch... but that is what I was signing up for.
Missing one star due to a UI that needs an expert touch. Many time I’m expecting an active link—specifically the main “upcoming” view. The way they are presented makes me want to click on each mission to learn more about them. Have that go to Wikipedia or something. Please.
Such a terrible application. You can’t even save your photos
It doenst upload my pics and vids automatically. 2/5
I have to turn the app every day to make sure that it got everything. And even tho I manually click auto-upload, it will still take for ever to upload them or it still doesnt upload some of my files.
Terrible update 1/5
Why do I pay for a Flickr Pro account if I can’t get my notifications? STOP changing Flickr. LEAVE IT ALONE!
Latest update has issues with notifications. 1/5
Latest update has problems with notifications. When you tap the “bell” icon for that tab/page, the display shows a blank screen. This is new with the latest update and is probably another bug that needs attention. Additionally, the “no internet connection “ warning appears often after coming out of the lock screen.
Copy n paste 3/5
I just join Flickr and just learning that some group require us to give comments and awards in a form of certain sentences followed by a link to certain group. While the senior user suggest to just copy from the "group rules/ information" or copy from others comment, in this Flickr apps I cannot do that.. (Copy anywhere on displayed words or comments).
Please add this very important feature as this is essential in Flickr community!
Don’t buy it
Digital photography 5/5
By dark moon night
The best photography since since Playboy and timing
Works Okay 4/5
At one time, one could view the photos posted by people you want to follow. Now, the App pushes photos from everyone and makes finding the photos from your contacts a struggle. Guess Flicker is more interested in expanding the user-base than satisfying the existing users.
Flickr is a Enjoyable way to Share Photos with Others and Comment on Posted Photographs.
Pretty quick app for faving' and viewing on iPhone. Needs work.
Move to slow when uploading 1/5
By Mz Righteous
This is a good app but it doesn’t upload my pictures like it’s supposed to, it’s a real slow process. Please fix this issue I’m still waiting on some of my pictures to upload from months and days ago of special events
Love It! 5/5
So much better than the old Flickr
I love Flickr, but not the App. It freezes whenever I click on someone’s image to view or comment. I can’t exit from the image and have to completely shut down the app and restart it again. Frustrating! Please fix this issue.
Love It! 5/5
I love flickr! Great app to store my pictures in & share them as well!
Auto upload video option 4/5
By Logi bob
Better if we have an option to stop uploading videos . Uploading videos is too slow even with smaller size
Doesn’t AutoUpload anymore, no support 1/5
I noticed that the last time any photos on my camera roll upload it was March 12 so I open the app and watched the two half circles roll around each other and left it on overnight. None of the 150 photos on my camera roll since that date have uploaded.
Their support option is a self help forum where there are dozens of recent posts with no comments - the last one with a support response was coincidentally March 13 - so no help.
Director of cinematography 5/5
By Adel eltilmesany
Very good application
Best thing going 5/5
Flickr has got to be the best deal ever. I have used it to store my photos for over ten years and it has never lost a photo or cost me a penny.
the best photo app for anyone 5/5
from novice to pro, it is just the best app for all photo lovers
Sold to another company 3/5
The Flickr has been sold to another company. Since I don’t trust them I will delete the app and all my photos.
Not working 1/5
I’ve used Flickr app on iPhones and iPads for years. Over the last few weeks the app on both an iPhone and iPad has become unstable. Images are taking several minutes to upload and then I will have multiple copies - as many as ten. Today app would simply not work. After deleting app and reinstalling, my Flickr took minutes to display and I could not upload an image.
Desktop Mac app working fine. The iOS apps useless.
Don’t download it! 1/5
Flickr will delete your photo stream for no reason, and you’ll lose everything. They don’t even give a warning. They’ll do it if they feel like it, they decided to be bullies and deleted all my photostream saying I passed off work that wasn’t mine as mine when I never shared anyone’s work on there.
Easy and efficient for safe keeping and sharing 5/5
I have several thousand images on Flickr. The UI is simple and accurate. I bifurcate public versus private easily and with clarity. Linking to my stuff is easy. Two thumbs up.
Oh - and not a lot of irrelevant [email protected]
@@@. Just images.
I hope that the upcoming acquisition doesn’t screw it up.
Great app but... 3/5
By Perry Jefferies
Everything about Flickr is great but the mandatory Yahoo email to login is off the chain.
Broken uploader 1/5
Whoever wrote the uploading feature for this app, should change his career to something non-engineering related. From uploads that take forever and lose the file, to uploads that upload a different picture (can you believe it!?), it’s just disappointing. There are many other bugs in this app.
A few things can be improved 4/5
I like how seamless the upload is and how simple the app interface is. That being said, there are some things Flickr should do to be better in general, and some functionalities you can only do on the computer. 1. We should be able to favorite our own photos. 2. If I adjust the time on my computer, Flickr should know and have the right time when uploaded.
I love Flickr! 5/5
By Cool Jer
Flickr is one great app and it always works well. They give you one terabyte of free storage! I love to put pictures up that I am most proud of and it’s nice when people favorite them. The best part though is getting to see other people’s pictures from different places around the world.
Really bad app 1/5
Ok, it does the job and sometimes work pretty good. But usually - uploader stucks and you can't backup all your photo for days. When you browsing and selecting more than 10 files to delete, move or whatever - app crashes. If you swipe more than one year - app crashes, etc. Also, if you saved some photos from web to your phone, and they go to your photostream - you are risking that your account will be deleted without warning (because you uploaded photos that don't belong to you). For example saved some Taylor Swift photos or something else that is popular (so the bots can auto identify) to use as wallpaper? Bam! All your photos deleted. So in short - use Google or Apple, but not this garbage. Used Flickr since iphone6, and the app keeps getting worse. I'm out! And hope Yahoo will get bankruptcy
I can not upload photos. Currently uploading with web version flickr. This is not a big problem as you can also upload it with the iphone feature. However, as I pointed out before, the behavior of the application is strange. This application can now select "Date Taken" and "Date Uploaded" but when I select "Date Uploaded" the position of the photo will move around here and there. When I tap to display pictures, different photos may be displayed. Anyway it's hard to use. Notice is no longer displayed recently. We will seek improvement as soon as possible.
P.S.: Recently, I often can not reply to comments. An error is displayed. I urgently need improvement.
Although I wrote it before, it has not been improved that photos are moved arbitrarily in the application. It is very hard to use. Are you willing to improve the application?
Love it 5/5
Been on Flickr for YEARs and it’s been great from day one. Thank you :)
can’t save 3/5
i like this app but the only issue i have is that i can’t save my videos to my phone...
Flickr rocks 5/5
Love this app
Be careful if using for backup 3/5
The app has many nice features but fails in one important area - the app consistently does not upload all the photos. I’ve monitored the uploads and all too often the app does not upload all the new photos.
Be awesome if! 4/5
By Max Fsa
Would be awesome if you guys incorporated the Flickr mail within the Flickr app as well, it’s tiring to have too start up the computer and look at my Flickr mail just for a moment. Be easier to open my app and go straight to Flickr mail and respond to mail, if, and when, I get any. Even if you make an entirely to app called “Flickr Mail” I wouldn’t care lol, would just like to have it be easier on anybody, who uses their mail. I know some say, just use your safari. NO cause that’s a hassle in itself.
Was getting back on track, but now ...? 1/5
Editing 04/16/2018 for version 4.6.0: still broken. Dropping to 1 star. Yesterday I tried to upload 3 images, one at a time because I don’t want to tax the poor app too much, and it uploaded 12 copies of each. It got stuck on one, so I tried to kill the app and try again but it then uploaded the new ones and still kept on with the stuck one. Eventually deleted the whole app and reinstalled and yet it still knew who I was even though I have no other Yahoo apps installed. I got a prompt saying “give feedback”, so I did, again, and just got an email today closing the issue with a link to a forum question that didn’t fix or address my problem. At this point it just seems like a busted flush. If anyone’s listening, you should fix your app, it’s embarrassing itself and, to my great sadness, Flickr. Please sort it out.
Editing 02/11/2018 for version 4.5.4: still doesn’t work, despite several “bug fixes and improvements” releases. Did anyone actually test uploading images with it? One image, fine; multiple images, lose all EXIF and location data. Post upload, post delete, still problems displaying most recent images properly. These may not be show-stopping bugs, but they’re pretty darn bad, and they’re not getting fixed.
Editing 01/07/2018: reducing to 3 stars because there are core bugs that they just don’t seem to want to fix, despite reporting it via the feedback and talking to Flickr support on Twitter. Uploading more than one image at a time garbles the EXIF data, no info or location are shown for those pics on the app or the site. One at a time is fine, but that’s really annoying to have to do. Also, after you’ve uploaded, there are frequently issues with layout and displaying the new images. I thought it might be just my specific iPhone model but I’ve recently upgraded the phone and there’s no change. Also, there are plenty of functions that could easily have been incorporated into the app in the time since it was launched but just haven’t made it in, and subjectively it “feels” like the overall layout has got worse. I’ve been a paid Flickr user since early 2005, have maybe 14k pics on it, and have continued to support Flickr, but I’m currently unimpressed with the unmoving state of half-assed site updates and broken app uploads. Especially since the Verizon acquisition. I mean, come on. Verizon.
Very nicely thought-out, properly modernised Flickr photo app. Seems to take some good lessons from Instagram without feeling the need to emulate it, which was a failing - and, I think, a panic reaction - in some of the previous mobile versions. Website functionality still needs a lot of attention, but the Flickr experience is really being brought up to date; it places itself firmly back in the right context and nicely distinguishes itself with a solid photography focus, rather than just yet more mindless "social" me-too-ism. Come on Flickr, you can get back on top!
Excellent Photo App 5/5
By Rob Luq
Uploads too many copies 3/5
Maybe I can get the attention of developers this way. When I’m on a slow connection, the uploadr adds multiple copies of the same image - last batch did 10 copies! Of 3 images! There is no way to stop the uploadr except by deleting the app. This is ridiculous.
Issues with uploading. 3/5
Every time I try and upload a picture it adds 20 of the same image. Or sometimes it continuously uploads the same picture until I close out of or remove the app. Could you fix this?? Otherwise I love the app and would give it a 5 Star.
By Louis L Vu
Great app ever. High quality photos.
