2flicka updated to v1.6 and becomes free for a limited time for Windows Phone

Windows Phone users who are looking for a quality Flickr application are in luck. Today, 2flicka issued an update to its powerful application while at the same time dropping the price to zero. You read correctly, 2flicka is now free for a limited time. For those who have not used 2flicka, it is a powerful tool that offers the ability to capture photos with the app specific camera, photo editing, and has a robust filter set (45 filters). The application also allows entering of descriptions, with the option to organize photo sets and create new ones. The new update brings subtle changes as detailed below:

  • batch actions - delete/add to photoset/add to groups a batch of selected photos
  • faster UI
  • polished visuals
  • notifications for photos you commented on

While not as substantial of an update as version 1.5, which was issued close to a week ago, version 1.6 still brings appreciated improvements to the overall experience. It also improves the already robust tool set by adding a batch actions option that will no doubt be helpful to heavy users.

Unfortunately, it is uncertain how long the promotional pricing will run. 2flicka normally retails for a price of $1.29.

How can they charge for an unofficial app that just accesses content from a site they have nothing to do with? Are they charging for the photo editing?

I'm going to make a Neowin App and charge money for it.

It's cheeky I admit, but they've still gone to the trouble to make it easier for people to access and utilise Flickr, so deserve payment. In some ways it can be harder to hack something to work with a third-party website than write your own which likewise deserves credit. And ultimately it's more useful as there are millions of people who use Flickr, if they created their own site nobody would be interested.

Windows Phone market is filled with apps like these. Mainly because the support was never there from the first party . Its getting better now though...
