Love everything about Flickr,but...the backup/sync has continually run for the last several days even though a photos are there. When you click on the backup/sync circle it shows 3 of 4 photos backing up but freezes there. there's no way to see where or which photo isn't loading properly.Unlike Onedrive or even google photos,which show photo by photo as they are being backed up and when there's a problem you can stop the upload and or remove the photo that's causing the problem.
Something has gone wrong since yesterday. Same issues as other users. I'm getting endless notifications. In addition, I don't get notifications on replies to my comments. I get the notification symbol, but can't see the notification. Something isn't right. App was fine until now. I have now removed the app from my tablet and phone until problem is resolved. This is so frustrating
People behind Flickr are useless They make it so that you can't contact them WHATSOEVER with any issues. The help section on the website takes you round in circles. I have a problem with my own personal account but cannot contact them about it!!!! After checking the community forum by the sound of others postings staff think that its the users being idiots and Flickr is issue-less. They obviously do not care about their users at all, no wonder its free to use. And why so many people refuse to pay for the pro version.
Stop annoying notifications Now it's a problem to leave a message on a someone's picture because you get endless notifications and nothing you can do about it. You're shooting your own feet yahoo, nobody will comment, nobody will like pictures, like facebook is ruining itself.
Sharing is difficult Fast upload and great quality but difficult to share. Why do you have to have a yahoo account just to see a photo? My sister and others can't open my photos because it tells them to log in to yahoo to view photo... They don't have a yahoo account!!!
Backwards Step I have loved the app and only had a few niggles, such as the location search via app being quite hit and miss. However, the new notification system ruins things for me. It was great seeing a notification and knowing I had a new fave, comment or follower for my work but now it seems to also relate to someone following on from my comment on someone else's photos. Hopefully this is an error and will be rectified soon, otherwise I might need to search out a 3rd party app, which would be a shame.
We're back with some small tweaks and fixes:
- Stability and performance enhancements.
- Follow your groups straight from your feed with new groups cards.
- Create an account with any email, no Yahoo email address required.
- Lots of other bits and bobs to smooth over the user experience.
Stay tuned for more frequent updates and new features.
