[Official Thread] Stats on Mobile Removed

Flickr Staff

itsnihir says:

Hey everyone-

We wanted to let you know that we’re going to need to temporarily remove the stats feature from our iOS and Android mobile apps while we work on other important updates and improvements to the apps. We’ve recently hired additional Android and iOS engineers and they’re already diving in, fixing bugs and building features.

Why is stats being removed from the apps? Usage of the feature has been low since launch, and the way it is built is incompatible with Flickr’s new login system that we’re in the process of rolling out. We’ll re-build stats in a way that better meets members’ needs on mobile and that works with the new login.

We estimate that the work to bring back stats will take a few months, but in the meantime, stats are still available to Pro members here -- and this link works on any browser, including on your mobile device.

The bit about low usage is interesting, it seems like many people live and die by stats on Flickr. Hm. Thanks for the update.

It was definitely poorly implemented. Slow, difficult to access and limited in functionality. Glad you’re committed to getting it right.

Stats aren't the only thing missing from the iOS app (v4.11.1). I downloaded the app this evening and it gives a black screen for my contact's photos, a white screen for both search and recent activity, and on the "me" screen it alternately either says I should upload photos, shows the most recent upload as a week ago, or shows gray squares where the photos should be. This is an iPhone XR running iOS 12.2.

We can only assume that the majority of those using stats are doing so from real computer browsers, rather than what is apparently a problematic and poorly implemented app.

Lot’s of issue’s since the removal.
On my iPad pictures didn’t show, so removed app and reinstalled, since then flickr isn’t listed in the notification settings of iOS, so reinstalled again but that didn’t solve the issue. So no notifications anymore.
Just noted that on the app i cannot add my picture in albums. Photo not found it says. Can add to groups though.
More or less same thing on my iPhone. But there I decided to log off and on again. That brought back the pictures, but for the rest same issues.
Everything works fine from a browser like safari, so must be the app that broke. Hoping for a quick fix.

kp-kp-kp:

Update: logging out then back in was only a temporary fix. The search and me screens are once again blank, with the latter encouraging me to upload photos.

When I now log out/in I get the following text on a screen:

“Hi jschumacher!
Oops! Flickr doesn't recognise the API key this application is trying to use.
An external application has requested your login credentials and permission to perform certain actions on your behalf, but has failed to include all the required data.

You don't really need to know what this means, except that you can't use the application until this problem is fixed. (It's a third-party problem, not a Flickr problem.)

There are lots of applications using the Flickr API. If you are curious about this, visit the Flickr Services page to see more examples of cool stuff. Otherwise, you might like to head to your home page...

What's going on here?
Flickr encourages other developers to build cool tools for you to play with, but you must authorize these third parties to access your account.
Want to know more?
A wealth of information lies within the Flickr Services page.”

The greeting tells me that I’m actually logged in, but dismissing that screen just brings me back to the “get started” page that wants me to log in again.

I am having similar problems as many of those who have reported above. I have been trying to upload photos to Flickr via Photos on the ipad (apparently there is a 12.2 update but neither device has flagged it yet).

When I go to select an album to upload on the ipad, I get a white screen with rthe revolving blue and red dots - and noth8ng else. Going back to the iOS upload screen,when I press upload, the porcess dies and nothing is uploaded.

I managed to upload the images on the phone instead, but then made the Terrible Mistake(TM) of updating the phone app - and now I am getting the same uselessness as on the ipad.

So it’s back to the imac.

What on earth is FlickrMug up to? It looks as though we are the mugs, or at least are being teeated as such by the New Owners.

Having exactly the same issue since this topic started. Now the update of the flickr app is available i was hoping that a reinstall of the app would solve it, but no.

Flickr is not listed as an app in SETTINGS > NOTIFICATIONS
= no way to enable App notifications

If freshly installed also the camera access and access to photo’s are not present as a setting. But that solves itself when saving your first picture when you are prompted with a message and are directed to the settings where all off a sudden the setting is there. Same for when you want to take a picture from the app. Also then the option to enable camera access is suddenly shown.
It is the badge with the number of new notification that I miss mostly

ashwani2310 says:

kmacgray:

On the iPad, on which “Manage Accounts” still works, the “Preferences” pop-up presents the “Manage Accounts” band at the bottom. The “Manage Accounts” screen, accessed through the aforementioned “band”, lists the accounts signed into the App, with a green tick-mark indicating which account is presently accessing Flickr.

At the lower end, below the list of accounts, is a gear symbol also with the text “Manage Accounts”. When that is clicked, the accounts on the App are displayed with buttons, the currently functional account button being in the “On” position.

When that button is switched off, one gets signed out.

Now, on the iPhone, the “Manage Accounts” band has been replaced by a “Sign Out” band.

On Android, I saw, sometime ago, the “Manage Accounts” option was still in place. I’ll try to confirm if that presents an option for signing out.

{Edit: I checked. “Manage Accounts” on Android also leads to the gear symbol and then to the “On/Off” button against the account currently signed in. Switching it off would effect a signing out. I hope that helps}

The only thing of interest in the "improvements" offered under new Flickr. Up until now I have been unable to access them as I had what Flickr termed as an orphan account. Today I have changed to the new login only to find the stats are not currently available. Not looking good when my renewal is due, luckily I had just renewed for 2 years just before the take over so we will see how it goes.

fixing bugs and building features

I would like to report that now my photos are not uploading from my iPhone to Flickr with the Flickr App.

When I open a photo on the phone in the Flickr App for sharing, I am presented with a privacy setting of "Public" which is not the same as the default setting in my account settings.

On tapping "share" after manually setting the privacy setting, I find photos from the phone do not get added to my photostream.

{Edit: The only way photos are getting uploaded to Flickr with the iPhone App is by first opening the App, then tapping on the camera icon and then selecting the photo in the phone Camera Roll presented in the App.

To clarify, one can’t now upload by selecting a photo on the phone and opening it in the Flickr App for uploading. That can still be done on the iPad}

Thanks, this is valuable feedback. The account switcher was part of the Yahoo login system and had to be removed as part of moving our systems away from Yahoo. It wasn't used by too many people, but that's obviously no help to you as two of the people who did use it. I'm sorry for that inconvenience.

I'd love it if you'd add this to the wishlist thread here: www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157666189625037/

That's the best place to share feature suggestions as we will revisit that list frequently in prioritizing future projects.

I checked my stats daily in the app, because it is good to know which pictures are viewed and which not. If stats is removed from the app longer, I will delete it from my device, and probably use flickr less often.

I check my stats on my iMac computer, iPhone, and iPad.

They just do not appear. The top internet link just doesn't open.

Why is this happening?

Also, I use my iPhone to view Flickr when I am away from my computer.

And, I use my iPhone quite often as it is in my handbag when I am not home.

This thread is specifically discussing stats in the mobile app. Perhaps start with the usual browser troubleshooting steps to see if they help.

That has nothing at all to do with the subject of this thread, so I'm not sure how you chose this thread to post in. Best to start your own topic.

Stats was the main reason I bought pro. Will I be reimbursed for this?

You still have access to the stats, just temporarily not via the app.
