Android Candy: Flickr Uploader

As luck would have it, shortly after I purchased a Flickr Pro subscription, Yahoo decided to eliminate the pay-for option with Flickr and give everyone a free Terabyte of space to store photos. Although I'm still not convinced Flickr is the best way to store photos, I have found it to be very flexible, so for now, my family members dump all their photos to Flickr from all their devices. (And then I back them up with because I'm paranoid.)

On my phone, a Galaxy S4, I find it cumbersome to upload photos directly to Flickr, so I bought Flickr Uploader from the Google Play store, and now all my photos are uploaded to Flickr instantly when I take them. Options are available to limit uploading to Wi-Fi only, or to upload only certain kinds of photos (camera photos but not screenshots, for example). The application is $4.99, but the developer has created "coupons" to get the application for a huge discount or even free.

I find the application to be smooth, stable and incredibly convenient. It's important to realize, however, that if you're the sort of person to take personal or compromising photos, double- and triple-check your settings to make sure you don't upload publicly viewable shots automatically! If you're a Flickr user, check out Flickr Uploader today.

Wonderful article i must say. Your post captures a lot of "burning" problems of our minds. It is impossible to be untouched to these challenges. There are many articles out there on this particular point, but you have highlighted different sides of the topic. This article gives a lot of great information and inspiration. Very professional.
