New release of Flickr Addict for the Palm Pre

Posted by Shane O'Sullivan on January 21, 2010

Version 0.2 of both Flickr Addict and Flickr Addict Lite have been released on the Palm App Catalog, just three hours or so after submission, so kudos to Palm!  This release is an incremental improvement mostly, but it contains a number of features that a lot of people asked for:

  • Manual sizing of wallpapers.  You can now pinch to zoom the image in order to manually select just a portion of the photo to use as a wallpaper.
  • Better randomization of images.
  • More options on how often images are changed.   Some people felt that 5 minutes was too short, and one hour too long, so you can now change the wallpaper every 5, 15,  and 30 minutes, and every 1, 6 or 24 hours.
  • More information on the currently displayed image.  You’ll see a new button at the bottom of the screen when viewing a full screen photo.  Clicking it shows the title of the photo and the person who took it.

It also includes some bug fixes, and improvements to downloads to make them go faster.

The big news for  users of the free Flickr Addict Lite app is that this release gives you two days use of the full app features, before returning to Lite mode, so you get to see what all the fuss is about ;-)

    Please stop creading Pre apps. Nobody else but you has ever bought the phone :(

  2. Laura,

    Fortunately for me, you are wrong. It’s nowhere near iPhone numbers, but being a big fish in a small pond is working well for me.

    Also, why do you care? This is possibly the most pointless commment I’ve seen short of spam trying to sell me viagra.

    What a bizarro post from Laura.

    Anyways, thank you for this new release. I notice you fixed the little problem I had. :) I also notice that the randomization IS better so I am happy about that too.

    I have some generic viagra. CHEEP! lol

  4. @Chris, glad you like it. More on the way ;-)

    Thank you for the update! The randomization does seem better – on my first download of pictures I got a much better selection from my Flickr account (a wider variety from across my photo sets). I love Flickr Addict, and am always showing it off.

  7. Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the free PR :-) I’m working on adding custom group selection right now, so look for an update in a few days!

    How do I remove pictures downloaded that I do not like?

  9. Tap the image icon to view the picture, then tap the “i” information icon at the bottom. This gives you the option of either blocking that photo or all photos from that user.
