  1. Apple TV version

    Please provide an update to the Apple TV (v4) App so that it will display more than 2 images before reverting to a black screen. At the moment it is of no value for scrolling through images, and there has been no App update for a very long time. Issue has been reported on the forums many times, but seems like no action is being taken

    The Apple TV app is TERRIBLE! Please fix it and make it live up to the high standards of the iOS app. I LOVE Flickr but can't use it on Apple TV.

  4. BUG : Apple TVG4 : Flickr App: In Start Slideshow Window, The Settings Texts Are Missing

    1. Go to the thumbnails screen of any album in your account.
    2. Click on Slideshow.
    3. In Slideshow Settings, all you see is the word "Settings" with 3 ">".
    4. However, when you highlight the option by swiping down, you see the text appear normally.

    I'm assuming this by is a HUD Display issue when the text is black on black screen when it should be white text on black screen.

  9. Please fix the Apple TV app for latest Apple TV

    When I use the Flickr app on my new Apple TV (latest version) I have issues with it. If I look at an image then swipe to the next image it works but then if I swipe again then all I see is black and I have to go back UP out of picture viewing and then select the next image to view . But then the same problem happens again if I swipe twice. So I cannot simply view photos of the a Flickr app on the latest Apple TV without a lot of hassle. It is very very…

  13. Still doesn't work with Apple TV

    Been a year. Screensaver still doesn't work. I've mostly switched to iCloud. Debating whether just to cut the cord and cancel subscription.

    I know this isn't about the app, but I think it's relevant to how your subscription base may or may not be growing.

  14. New AppleTV Issues

    The new AppleTV (with Siri and touch remote) does not offer Flickr as a screensaver and the slideshow function quits after 5 photos. The previous AppleTV's did not have these issues. Viewing Flickr on my TV through AppleTV is one of the main reasons I like and use Flickr.
    Thanks, Charles

  15. FLICKR Apple TV App improvement - Album View

    Hi. I'm an avid FLICKR user, and newest Generation Apple TV owner. I like the FLICKR App for the Apple TV. However, I feel the "Album" view on the Apple TV App could use some improvement. I love the Album view the web version of FLICKER appear, especially with the Album name at the top and the larger image format to create a truly beautiful album for viewing. Would be nice to have the same view for the Apple TV App. Hope you'll give this some consideration. Thanks.

  16. Apple TV issue

    Hi, My name is Pablo and I'm using Flickr to upload massively pics and then share with family all over.

    I have pics organized by albums (as events)

    So far has been working great, but I discover a problem that at the time to open Flickr in Appel tv can display up to a limit of 500 albums. Is not a hardware issue and I tested in old and latest applet tv and is doing the same

    Any solution for that ? Obviously I'd like to see albums already uploaded in Flickr in the same way through Appel tv

    Thanks…

  18. Add the ability to sort by upload date on the Flickr Apple TV 4 app.

    Right now the Apple TV 4 Flickr app defaults to the date a photograph was taken. Please include a way to sort by upload date.

  19. Apple TV screensaver app

    Please update Flickr so that it can be used as the screensaver for latest generation Apple TV. I have introduced many people to Flickr because of the screensaver app for the older Apple TV.
