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 The current app is very old, outdated and not useful.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.
Your Windows Phone app is very poor and outdated.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 The current app (for WP7) is very old, outdated and not useful.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.

Thanks, no customer support will mean the customers will not support Flickr as well, i will take my mobile photography to 500px wich supports all 3 major mobile OS including millions of WP users. Goodbye and funny to see Yahoo is shoveling it's own grave.
Lorenzo Arredondo commented
I've supported Flickr enough. I'm bailing on my account, in use since 1997. If you don't support my phone then I don't support you. Reconsider or go the way of Geocities.
Florian Aydt commented
Thanks for the Info, today is officially the last day I am EVER posting a pic to your website. The best camera-phones deserve a proper client, Yahoo apparently is once again unable to provide.
Thanks for nothing.
Tyrelle Watts commented
i know you guys don't care but looks like i won't be supporting your ******** photo app, since you won't support windows phone.
Evil Merlin commented
That's because the Flickr Community Team, with people like Matthew Roth are ******* Nazis.
Well, this is annoying. Please consider.
thanks to developers like yourself and Rudy for sticking it to the companies who should be doing this in the first place.
All the more reason for me and my friends to switch to 500px.

Hi WP8 users,
Try this app
It supports most of the Flickr API, plus image editing.
And I WILL actively update, maintain and add new features to the app. It will be forever free without ads!
Mitchell Leitman commented
Bad idea coming from a relative has-been like Yahoo!. I'd think you'd support every platform to promote adoption (let alone prevent abandonment) of your services.
I am a 1020 owner, and have uploaded some photos to flickr, but without a working app I no longer use flickr and upload my photography elsewhere. This needs to be re-thought expecially considering how photo orientated most Windows Phone users are.
Geazi Soares commented
Parabéns Yahoo, então é assim que estão reestruturando a empresa, esquecendo de S.O. emergentes. Espero que agindo dessa maneira continuem a se darem mal no negócios em 2014, porque eu vou usar meu 500px aqui, lembranças.
Cicero Eduardo commented
Sacanagem! Eu espera uma atualização do Flickr para o Windows Phone. Sendo assim, ficarei com o 500px
Seriously "Product Support"?
need to seriously think about taking my money and moving to 500px or another service then.
yahoo has been buying out so many dev studios and you can't afford to buy one that already has windows phone expertise? for shame.
Jason Brown commented
I will be taking back all my photos now. sticking them in to skydrive until a proper upload service can be created for the 1020. one I can upload over the air.
I am about to kill my second account due to bad business practices. first Google now Yahoo.
Luca Spolidoro commented
Good job abandoning the platform with the best camera phone out there...

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!
Nokia Lumia 1020 and previous Flickr User
Thanks for confirming this Matthew Roth. I will now be cancelling my Flickr pro account and removing my photos from flickr and happily move to 500px. Of course after I share this comment of yours throughout the Flickr community.
Alexi Duluc commented
That's a very pathetic response! Windows Phone is now the third major option and I can't believe Yahoo gives this response. I can assure you that there are going to be many frustrated users with this approach. Good luck, Yahoo.
The Captain commented
Thanks for the feedback Matthew. Congratulations to Flikr, a service that is failing fast, in ignoring the fastest growing mobile platform and one that has some of the best mobile photography devices on the market. Guess you guys like shooting yourselves in the foot. Cheers and goodbye, I'm off elsewhere
