The Disappointing Drawbacks of Flickr’s iPhone App
So, Flickr for the iPhone has recently received an update, making it one of the more intuitive and attractive photo-sharing apps out there. After giving it a try, I absolutely loved its UI and overall functionality. The photo filters are solid as well, giving Instagram some much overdue competition. However, one of the most disappointing drawbacks of the app is its limitations on a free account. A normal, free account only allows people to view your most recent 200 photos. You are also limited to uploading only 300 megabytes per month. Additionally, statistics are only available with a paid account. It’s always fun to see how many people are viewing your photos each day, which ones are the most popular, and how people found your photos. These features are only available if you go pro for $24.95 per year. I guess the real photography professionals would be willing to pay this price, but the average Joe would not. Still, the app is fun to use and offers a real alternative to Instagram.
How about you? Do you use Flickr? If so, do the limitations bother you?
