What's New in Version 2.9.6
- Fix the re-upload issue
This little app is a workhorse! I had over 28,000 photos to transfer to Flickr and although it took about 3 days for it to process everything, it never crashed once and it forced my computer not to go into sleep mode to get it all done. (one of the settings) When I first tried the app, I didn't realize that I had to find and choose the library that I wanted transferred over and didn't pick a library so I got an error message. I contacted customer support at 3am and surprisingly, they got right back to me to guide me through the process. I don't know if there were any dupes or omissions because of my enormous library, but so far it all looks good! I highly recommend this app!
It is an ok app, but it seems to reload a lot of content even after it has supposedly been loaded a number of times before. I finally got my large set of photos uploaded, and now I am trying with videos; but between a slow upload network speed (not a fault of the software) and videos needing to be reloaded up each time I start again (seems like that is the fault of the software), I have only gotten 120 short videos uploaded out of a 1000 from my iPhoto library. More work needed to improve uploads and not having to re-upload the file each time.
Does what it says but needs improvement
It is an OK app, and performs quite nicely once it starts running. The problem with big libraries is that it takes ages to compare library data to Flickr data, and it makes resuming upload a big pain in the neck. Also, when you pause upload and want to resume it, you will have to reselect the library, and the workflow seems a bit buggy - hopefully an update to the app would fix this issue.
