WHAT OUR USERS ARE SAYING:
"Phenomenal app for browsing through all your friends' Facebook photos. The tabletop/flick away interface is fantastic, and the amount of functionality built into the multi-touch multi-finger taps and holds really makes this app shine. Terrific complement to iPhoto" - Paul (App Store Review)
"I've only been playing with this app for about 5 minutes or so and i've already decided that this is the coolest ipad app i've downloaded yet. There are a lot of cool apps out there but most of them - besides taking advantage of the bigger screen - don't "do" much more than their iphone counterparts, but this app exudes ipad." - Aaron (App Store Review)
"Love it, one stop to catch up on all my friends pics." - Alwasamom (App Store Review)
"There are seemingly endless Flickr clients for the iPad, but this is the one I use most. Why? Because it is the first one that actually makes it feel like you are browsing real printed photographs." - WIRED
"... the Shacked Apps guys stepped up their game and released the best Flickr and Facebook photo browser for iPad." - MacStories
"I would buy an iPad JUST for this application!" - Max Williamson, Flickr user

You probably bought an iPad because of it's revolutionary multi-touch interface. Why settle for a boring old photo app when you could get one that actually makes the most of the awesomeness of multi-touch? Once you make the switch, you won't ever want to go back.
Frankly, because it is fun. We love photos and we assume you do as well. We were tired of browsing photos like they were still stored in photo albums. Open album, look at photos, close album, open next album, repeat ad infinitum. While Flickpad still allows you to find photos that way, it is definitely secondary. Welcome to a better way to enjoy photos!

Large library performance and bug fixes
Not So Awesome
Looks nice, but functionally stunted. If you want to zoom in on high res pictures, the image remains pixelated for some time before it catches up. Sometimes two seconds, sometimes five, or ten. Other times it never 'snaps in' unless you grab the picture and wiggle it around just to shake it out of being stuck. It seems to re-download the picture every time you pinch, zoom, or move the photo. If you will never expand a picture to full resolution it's a decent app, but otherwise it provides a slow and irritating experience.
Good app over all
A good app that I recommend to my friends, however it can be a bit buggy at times; including various error codes, crashing, & not returning all of the current day/week's pictures. Plus some pictures continuously return when marked as read for that previous time period and clicking outside of the comment field completely erases anything that had been written, regardless of reason (especially accidental hits).
Great Fun, Absolutely the Best!
