How can I use Flickr from my mobile device?
Apps, apps, apps!
There are official Flickr apps for your iPhone, iPod touch, Android, or Windows Phone 7 device. To get these, start at our mobile page. In addition to these apps there are also many, many 3rd party apps in Flickr's App Garden.
Optimized mobile website
All of the account settings on m.flickr.com are controlled by what you set on your main flickr.com account. If there are any settings that you'd like to change (recent activity, language, photos from contacts), you can do so when logged into the main site and the changes will then be reflected on m.flickr.com.
Can I send a photo to Flickr from my camera phone?
Absolutely! You can upload photos to Flickr from your camera using your unique email upload address. Set it up here.
When you upload photos via email, the subject line is used as the title of your photo, and the body of the email is used as the description.
You can also upload your camera phone photos to an outside blog. First, set up the blog (see the Blogs FAQ section for help). Then register a unique email upload address to post to your blog. Photos emailed to that address will be blogged automatically. When you're auto-blogging, the subject line of the email is used as the title, and the body is posted as the photo description.
Can I post to Flickr and Twitter from my mobile?
There are a few ways you can use Flickr to tweet your photos. The first thing to do to post to Twitter from Flickr is setup and authorize posting to Twitter.
There are also lots of 3rd party apps out there for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone 7. Most of them let you tweet your pics when you upload.
You can also Flickr2Twitter by email. Just send a photo or video to your unique 2Twitter address. The photo will upload to Flickr and automatically send a Twitter update! A lot of mobile phones let you send email so this is an easy way to Tweet photos from your mobile even if you don't have one of the phones mentioned above.
The Subject line of the message will be both the Flickr title and the tweet. You have 116 characters for your message and the rest will be a special short Flic.kr URL.
Also, if your photos are geotagged you can also choose to include that in your tweet.
Why am I seeing errors when trying to login to the iPhone app?
The two most common issues are if the username/password you are entering is incorrect and if cookies are turned off on your browser.
If you are seeing an error that says "Sorry, we are having trouble signing you in at this time." or if you are clicking the "Ok, I'll authorize it" button but nothing is happening you will need to make sure your cookies are turned on. To check this, open Settings on your phone and go into the Safari settings.
If your cookies are turned on make sure the username and password you are entering is correct. You can do this by simply logging into the main Flickr website.
