New Windows Phone app
I'm suggesting a new app for Windows Phone users. The current app is very old, outdated and not useful. It would also be nice to have a Windows 8 app.
Windows needs this app!
make app for windows phone too.
Why would you create an account on UserVoice when much of its users vote on something you just ignore? Many photographers are buying the Lumia 1020 for his camera and no shortage of Flickr competing applications on Windows Phone, and we agree that Yahoo is not in a very good situation to be selecting users. so please do some updating or take that application there
Nokia provides the most powerful cameras on the smartphones and needs a new app or update!
Please dont forget Windows Phone we love the flickr.
Windows Phone 8 app
when will you have a windows 8 app? is this some sort of game to ignore windows?
It's odd that Lumia phones have some of the best camera modules but that the Flickr app is so out of date. Please update, thanks.
Why there didn't exist an actual WP8/8.1 App?
Hi, I really like your service Flickr. Everything is good, but I am looking forward an official application for my Windows Phone. I have searched and found that Flickr is supported on iOS and Android
Your Windows Phone app is very poor and outdated. Why are you ignoring your users that have the best mobile camera there is? i.e Nokia 1020
Give the app a decent refresh. It would only cost around 50k which is nothing for Flickr or are you guys too hard up now everyone is leaving you?
It would be fantastic if you could develop an official app for the windows 8/8.1 ecosystem. Windows tablets and computers would be greatly benefited from an app that took full advantage of touch screen and allowed a live tile on the home screen. Sure you can access from the desktop internet browser, but it seems a real opportunity is being missed! Thanks for considering!
Need a new official Windows Phone 8 (WP8) App. The current app (for WP7) is very old, outdated and not useful. By the way, the app need other languages too, like Portuguese (pt-BR).
Ok then, do your homework and update the WP8 App - it´s last update is more than one year ago and it just shows how small your interest in WP actualy is! Are 10 Million sold WP-devices sold in the past quarter not enough as a new user base?!?!
i have been a fan of flickr since years but all I need is a better app for my phone i.e. lumia 620..... I hope you will provide it as soon as possible. thanks
when uploading photos from Windows Phone APP my photos do not take on my global privacy settings. and shows them as public... then I have to us my laptop later to adjust each on to family and friends manually ... once on the Flickr website they should take on the global settings right...??
make a Flickr app dedicated for WindowsPhone 8, with full features
Hi Anthony et. al.
Thank you for this feedback. At this point, we are focusing our mobile development efforts on iPhone and Android apps. If this changes, we’ll let you know in the forum here.

I and my friends are already thinking of deleting the account from Yahoo and Flickr together because of that neglect all, Yahoo was never a big deal now with the neglect with the third most used mobile system in the world, just missing a chance to grow more. There are tools like xamarim that allow the conversion of Android apps for Windows Phone with minimal changes, so why the neglect? Why waste more than 50,000,000 users?

Please, Flickr! Don't turn your back to your Windows Phone users fans. Don't do what Google does!
I fully agree with all of. We need a new app for Windows Phone 8.1 or 8.0. I received the new Lumia 930 and I just swore that no app where found for my new phone. I had before the Lumia 830 with Windows Phone 8.0 and upgraded to 8.1 it was still the old app but work OK.
So first I install via http://www.windowsphone.com/fr-fr/store/app/flickr/2e49fb07-592b-e011-854c-00237de2db9e this version and try to log on ... Never work.
And than I read a lot post here and I found a post with this link http://www.flickr.com/search/forum/?lang=en-us&q=windows+phone and after a quick check on my mobile (app already installed) I check if I could log on and .... MIRACLE through a Yahoo Windows login I could access to my Flickr account.
I don't know if he helps somebody but try ... it's up to you.
But again it would be better to have an app to 8.1 without going through all these hypothetical stages.
Please reconsider development of a Windows Phone app. With several new phones and a new version of the OS, things are looking up.

This is incredibly short-sighted on your company's part. There are official apps for Windows Phone from Facebook, Amazon, Ebay, Instagram, etc. It is the third emergent mobile platform and gaining momentum.
Joachim Rang commented
So a year later what's the Status on the Windows Phone app? You clearly can't ignore that platform forever, or so you?
With the advent of the common WP and Windows 8 app the "new" Flickr app would kill 2 birds with one stone, so how 'bout it. Give us a new app.
Please develop a new Windows Phone app. With Microsoft now the owner of Nokia's phone hardware, there seems to be an uptick in WP.
There are more Windows Phone users on Flickr now than before.
Why are you ignoring these users?
The same argument applies to the iPad users. No dedicated app for them either.
While the focus on android and ios is understandable, you are allowing junky 3rd party apps to define the Yahoo experience on Windows phone. That is a huge mistake that turns off new Yahoo customers and alienates those of us who have used Yahoo for years. Just my opinion that neglecting Windows Phone is not in Yahoo's best interests.
You'd think Yahoo of all companies would recognize Windows Phone is equal if not superior to both Android and iOS. No wonder their company is going down the drain.
Windows Phone is the best OS.
Nokia have the best cameras.
Anon Person commented
You guys are foolish to ignore Windows Phone. I'm going to move my photo management from Flickr.
The Nokia phones with Windows have by far the best cameras.
@Peter Tombee - I guess you don't realize that you really are paying for Yahoo services. How much money do you think they make off of you per year?
Peter Tombee commented
As Red Reddington might say, all this seems quite hilarious.
I wonder if all the posters here could come back with responses detailing how much they've PAID to Flickr for the benefit gained from Yahoo's service.
What have each of you paid, people?
For those of you who haven't paid anything (like me), why do you imagine you could have any say in what services Yahoo makes available? What hand do you have? What power?
Hilarious, that guests can dictate the order of the house.
Common Sense commented
The best cameras are Nokia (Windows Phone). Flickr is photo-sharing.
How is it not obvious that there needs to be a great Flickr app to take advantage of it?
And this is why I don't use flickr
Now that users of Android and iOS have been given the Flickr 3.0 App, is it not time to have another look at the long neglected requirements of users of Windows Phone 8?

Hi Flickr Product Support.
Thank you for this feedback. At this point, I am focusing my mobile photography efforts on Instagram, Facebook and 500px. I, my friends and my family will be moving all of our photos to another service that supports Windows Phone. Not sure how a mobile OS that has hundreds of millions of users is being shafted. Just because it only has 4% market share doesn't mean that the amount of users is less than worth the effort. 4% market share is still over 100 million users!
Please reconsider your development efforts. Windows Phone has the best camera phones and a great mobile photography community. As Windows Phone usage grows you're only limiting your potential user base and alienating current users who move to Windows Phone for its superior camera phone optics.
If you no longer want to have WindowsPhone user on Flickr please remove your app from the market. Then we'll have a real opinion on what Yahoo is thinking of WP users... I thought that one goal of Yahoo was to increase his market by having more users...
