What's New in Version 2.2.1
FIXED: Crash when uploading when selecting non-full size photos
Batch uploads could use improvement
I got this app hoping to select groups of photos from my library, set the tags on them, and upload in batches. The UI is pretty clean and simple, with clear progress bars. But I have two big beefs with the app.
First, selecting images from your library is a pain. It does not save your place, so scrolling through to find the chunk of photos you are looking for requires a lot of scrolling back and forth. Worse, it will let you add the same image twice, which is easy to do since you're just trying to remember your place. When this happens, it's time consuming to remove it and do some more scrolling.
Second, there is a settings area where you can select default metadata (ie, tags) for all of the photos you're uploading. The catch is, the metadata is applied to each photo as it is selected for upload, not on upload as I had imagined. As a result, I now have a bunch of incorrectly tagged photos that I'll need to edit manually. User error? Sure. But the interface could have been more clear.
Great app; great support.
Flickit was one of the first apps I downloaded years ago. I've never had issues; it's always just worked. I needed to delete a pic out of my queue and couldn't figure out how to do it. I emailed support at 11:06pm EST and at 11:41 received a response. (Tap on the thumbnail and scroll to the bottom of the settings). The quick response sent it over the edge; great app with great support.
Love this app! Seriously. Free? Amazing. One gripe though: I wish it was possible to see the full photo when you're picking the photos to upload... not just the thumbnail. I'm often taking 4 or 5 photos in quick succession but only want to upload one of them. It's impossible to pick the best one when you can only see the tiny thumbs. Anyway, just a minor gripe. Otherwise, awesome free app. (p.s. I'd totally pay for this feature!)
