    Thanks for clarifying. I will look into adding the ability to post a link directly to the resolution of your choice to your Facebook wall. It won't make the upcoming update due to be submitted this weekend, but hopefully the next one (1-2 weeks later).

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Version 2.0.0 really is a big step forward. Exif data of uploads from within the app are fixed, multiple upload and detail editing is working absolutely fine.
    Great job! Really impressive!
    Looking forward to Twitter sharing, an option to choose the size of photos to download and adding photos to groups.

    (minor bug?) The tile name still says 'Viewr', though program name is obviously 'Flickr Central'
    (question) Start tile keeps scrolling some photos which seem the same to me. Is that configurable?

    Haha, yeah this was a good catch, guess I missed it when I went for the name change.

    Indeed, the default pin is currently very boring, as it just scrolls through a few preset images. Pinning a tile from the my photos page or a set page will produce a much more interesting tile. Making the default tile more interesting is on my list of things to do.

    Good news, version 2.1.0 which is currently in progress, already has sharing to your social networks (including twitter). I will look into your two other suggestions.

    Keep the feedback coming!

    (minor bug) One more place where you need to change the name 'Viewr'...
    In the Auto Upload setting page you have a note with a *
    *Photos will only ever be ....
    The phone decide when to allow Viewr to upload...

    Looks like you need to search for the string Viewr and replace it with the new app name... :P

    hope you will fix few issues which I am facing right now...

    1. Auto upload, sometimes uploads the same pics again and again. So I had to delete those photos uploaded from my phone... Hope you have fixed this issue?? I cant check it coz I have already deleted all my photos from my phone.. :( I dont want to delete pics from my phone either... Please fix this bug.. (I hope this app uploads the pics in the background?)

    2. The explore option: When I go back to the explore main window from a particular pic, it takes me to the top, instead of from where I opened the pic.. I have to scroll down again and again in this case... Hope you are looking into this issue??

    Rest I am happy with other features and options... There is no issue in paying for an app if it has good features and has premium looks... :) The person should be satisfied for what he/she has paid...

    New features if possible:

    1. Adding new contact directly from my phone contacts.
    2. Editing/deleting pics from the app itself.

    I can give more ideas if you are really interested in implementing them...

    Haha yeah, I think I have found all of them now, more of a challenge than I had anticipated.

    1. Strictly speaking this is not supported in the Flickr API. While I am sure I could figure out how to do this without an API, I prefer to stick to Flickr's API to keep them happy and avoid any C&Ds. This has been requested before and I realize how useful it would be. I will continue to look into it, but that is why it isn't there just yet.

    2. Version 2.0.0 allows you to edit the title, description, and privacy setting of your photos within the app. This was the first step and next I am looking into allowing you to add your photos to / remove them from your sets within the app. As for deleting this is a little trickier. When I registered the app with Flickr I didn't request the ability to delete in the permissions. This was because deleting people's pictures is risky business and at the time I didn't want to involve myself in that. This leads to a problem now that if I want to add that feature, I need to request the ability from Flickr and all users of the app will need to reauthenticate with Flickr, which would be a terrible user experience.

    Feel free to suggest as many features as you would like. I maintain a list of features I want to add and I always add the suggestions I get to that list.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Upload or Auto Upload should allow me to create a new set. This way I need not log into flickr and create a new set just for my uploads from my phone.

    Does the app upload the full res lumia 1020 photos (34 mpixel etc) because i know there is a nokia api for this (atnt locker does it) and 1 TB would be put in good use with this. Thanks

    I do agree with this; however, it is slightly troublesome in that you cannot create an empty set. So to allow you to create a new set you must first specify a photo (that is already on flickr) to be put in it. This is the reason I do not yet have this feature. If you can think of a novel way of making this easy for users please let me know.

    I think ATT locker is the only app that can really do this (because ATT is more of a 1st party). I have looked into it before and as of right now normal developers cannot access the full size images on the 1020. If this changes (please let me know) I will implement that functionality.

    Thanks,

    I do agree we cannot create an empty set. But I have seen an app called Frogr which is in Linux, creates a new set and uploads the images to it... Looks like it creates a set by uploading it to Flickr and then upload all other images to that particular set.. That is my speculation though.. There may be some other method..

    thanks for creating this app. so much nicer than the stock flickr app. i do have a few issues though, specifically with auto-uploading. after logging in and enabling the option, my photos don't seem to be uploading. i have my phone (lumia 1020) plugged in and on wifi (i do have my cellular data turned off...which i do sometimes @ home in case i'm skyping and my wifi drops).

    in addition to the auto upload not appearing to work, i noticed something strange with the set option. i created a set on flickr's website called 'camera roll' (i know, very original). in the app settings, i input that i want my auto-uploads to go to that set. however, if i exit the app and then go back into the auto-upload settings, the set name changes from 'camera roll' to 'unknown set name' or something similar.

    using flickr central v2.0.2.0 on my lumia 1020 (with gdr3) on t-mobile in US.


    EDIT 12/5: After waiting for about an hour, I did notice that the images did finally start to upload. I notice that the auto upload only happens when i'm on wi-fi and plugged into a power source, and that it's scheduled, NOT like uploading to skydrive which is instantaneous. very nice app....
