Must convert to collage/tiled view
The app must switch to the tiled (thumbnail) collage view for the main feed. It's my biggest complaint with the app, and such a simple no brainer to change it. Flickr went the opposite way of Instagram a number of years ago, dumping an irritating new look on us with the expanded contact photos view. I prefer the older desktop versions, and rarely use the app because of this. The new desktop version has a cascading feed for your contact's latest uploads, similar to the app, but with multiple uploads expanded automatically. This is similar to the app where you have to scroll through full view uploads, but choose to expand multiple uploads on the app. I much prefer the older collage/tiled style desktop view for my contacts newest image. Thankfully, Flickr has left the option open on their desktop + website platform by choosing "people" from the drop down menu. That way I can see my contact's latest upload in a tiled view, and expand photos if I want to fav or comment. Unfortunately I'm like everyone else and "mobile" more than seated at the desktop interacting. I do love the 1TB storage, which is great for archiving high res-original files. My images also look better on here than Instagram. The only way I've been able to describe the visual difference is Flickr is like a new t-shirt that is cleaner, vibrant, and thicker feeling compared to Instagram image clarity that is like a stained, bland, and an old dirty rag.
A good picturing sharing site
I've been with Flickr since 2007 and have been pretty happy. Everything needs a little updating, not drastic changes. I kind of miss the little blue and pink dots everyone else hated, especially when viewed from my iPhone cause I'm rarely sure an image has rasterized or is just a bad shot. What I really dislike about the app is that if I'm looking at someone's portfolio and I'm a thousand images in, in either their portfolio or faves and I expand an image to see it larger, then scroll to the next several images, when I exit from that last image, back to the thumb nails it resets back to the very beginning of the portfolio. It's really aggravating to have to take the time to scroll back to where I was, in all those little thumbnails thousands of images. The only other issue I have and it's not as bad, is that if I can I don't know how to read my Flickr mail from my phone if even possible. It took me the longest time to figure out how to read someone's profile. A little tutorial would be nice especially when there's changes made. Placed like this request in the image feed. Aside from all that thanks to the Flickr team for a job well done!
Way too much local storage
If an app like this is going to take up over a gigabyte of local storage when the app itself is roughly a tenth of that, there absolutely MUST be an option in the app to clear the cache. I don't need all the images I've viewed recently being cached to my device, and I don't want to delete and redownload the app all the time to remove that cache. I'm getting closer and closer to deleting the app altogether.
Other than that, the app works decently. It's not terrible, but it certainly isn't great either. Coupled with Flickr's policies and the kind of accounts that attracts, I'm thinking it may be time to switch to a different site for sharing my photography.
Side note: Flickr isn't for backing up your photos. It's for sharing your best shots. I use it as a photographer, but it seems like the majority of users now are just using it for the free terabyte of storage to back up their camera rolls. You can use Google Photos for that, or just back up to your computer… don't use Flickr. Your photos aren't private and we don't want to see every photo you've ever taken with your phone.
