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 ;-)
