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 The current app is very old, outdated and not useful.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.

        I've been using Flickr for years and just switched phones and plan to be a Windows Phone user from now on. Would love to keep Flickr as my goto place for storing photos...

      • Chris. HuChris. Hu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'm a flickr user over 3 years. I also a windows phone user.

        Why don't flickr set up the App for windows phone?

        Flickr is a good photos website, but I can't get the same good

        experience on my mobile phone. I'm so sad.

      • Cosimo MatteiniCosimo Matteini commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, it is disappointing that thee is no app for Windows Phone and it will be even more so with Windows 10. And also consider a Windows tablet app

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Bing is "not supported"
        And Flickr Mobile does not work on my Windows Phone (latest)
        How do they manage to make such hard work of everything they do?
        Other major players manage to do it without me seeing any problems.
        Flickr; employ some proper programmers and some effective managers and start listening to your customers.

        If you combine all the Windows Phone ideas, I think it would be the 1st ranked, not the 13th.

        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?

      • DanielGirottoDanielGirotto commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is very easy to make an application for Windows Phone and Windows PC 8.1, could make a universal app, but the neglect with Windows is great, at least when Windows 10 come hope appears stand any chance of neglect of you over.

      • DaveLPGDaveLPG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please give some attention to the Windows Phone platform. Not just Flickr, but many other Yahoo offerings.

      • DaveLPGDaveLPG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I wish Yahoo, not just Flickr, would pay more attention to the Windows environment, including Windows Phone.

      • ZbyszekZbyszek commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I do not understand Flickr developers at all. Many sites likes or do not Windows but support your apps on Windows Phone.

        Maybe one day we will hear that Flickr do not like Pentax, Sony, Olympus etc. owners/users because they are not enough strong part of Flickr members and they will not be able to upload their photos to Flickr. Who knows...!
        You and you - we support you but you and you...go away !

        Is too hard to make Windows Phone app for Flickr developers ? Ok, 500px and others do quite good apps for WP. They can

        yahoo doesn't give a **** about windows

        look at tumblr
        look at mail
        look at news

        look at yourself

        me and you, the abandoned users of windows ecosystem.

      • Daniele MuscettaDaniele Muscetta commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Especially the ability to scroll more than the last 20 activities from my contacts is vital... and the live tile showing things from explore is useless if I then can't quickly jump to something that attracted my attention and I have to go and search again amongst hundreds of photos in explore to find back the one I saw randomly popping on the tile...

        Hi everybody
        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.
        Cheers

        Please reconsider development of a Windows Phone app. With several new phones and a new version of the OS, things are looking up.

      • Willie ScottWillie Scott commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I use 2 free 3rd party apps from the windows phone app store. Both work ok. I tend to doubt that the Flickr developers would do much better.
        Unfortunately this seems to be the current state of software development - change for the sake of change, seldom with tangible improvements and frequently the "enhancements and features" of the new versions are what amount to unintuitive downgrades for the majority.

        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 RangJoachim Rang commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So a year later what's the Status on the Windows Phone app? You clearly can't ignore that platform forever, or so you?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Windows Phones have some of the best phone cameras. Seems a shame that Flickr doesn't take advantage of this.
