Despite now being owned by 'Yahoo!' and despite web UI and usage changes, Flickr remains the best of a bad bunch in terms of Internet hosting of photos you're proud of, preserving full resolution in most cases - and now the only decent Windows Phone client for Flickr just got a lot better. 2flicka here adds notifications, a fairly large UI overhaul and bug fixes galore.
Photo viewer redesigned to avoid duplicate actions
Re-Flickr support added
Context menu added on all photos
Here's the new version of 2flicka in action:
At each turn, 2flicka manages to present a refreshed UI. These two views are just two of half a dozen panorama views, though the usual 'bit peeking out from the side' Windows Phone style is eschewed....
Support for Flickr notifications is new and very welcome - turns out a few people quite like my photos after all...! (right) Also new is support for adding detailed notes to a photo....
Typing a note up (or pasting in from somewhere else), but keeping it short for now; (right) and here's the note, in place on Flickr....
Why photographers love Flickr - all that juicy EXIF data is preserved and accessible! (right) a simple icon-based UI for all photos - though it will take you a while to memorise what they each do, since there's no tooltip help!
2flicka can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store. The app costs £1.29 / €0.99 / $0.99, and a trial version is available.
