Good, could be better!

You expect a more fun and beautiful app but it does an ok job!!!!
For anyone else who can appreciate awesome graffiti, this App has some of the most amazing pieces I've ever seen. Of course it also has other cool pictures of places too but the art is what this App is all about.
This is pretty basic, but works really well in terms of uploading pictures from your phone to Flickr and showing off your Flickr albums from your phone.
Would be far better and more useful for me if I actually had been using Flickr more for uploading than I do. Still, browsing is well implemented and the UI is great and easy to use.
I primarily use this when I need to upload pictures from an event while at an event. While this app is a bit slow on the uptake (or upload) it's worth it to have readily available on your phone if you ever use Flickr. More importantly if you're at a conference it's likely that they will use this tool to aggregate all the pictures taken at the conference (or event) so if you'd like to be included then this is the app for you.
I love the app launch -- the photo fades are pretty cool. I found the authorization method pretty straightforward. It does launch Safari, but I learned a bit more about what was going on that way. Wasn't too troublesome. The real question for me is, when do I share photos over Flickr, and when over Facebook? Most of my friends are on FB now anyway. This seems to be the 'public' side of my personal photos, if anything.
So workarounds can finally be dropped! The app works great, loads fast (3GS), renders my account photos quickly, and is free to boot. I do, however, have a wish list for this app.
1. Let me double-tap-zoom in on pictures! I would have thought this to be obvious?
2. Tell me we all weren't waiting this long for a nice splash screen when the app is opened!
The application is beautiful right from startup with the panning images. The process to link to your account is incredibly simple and well done. Uploading pictures is smooth. This is one of the best executed iPhone apps I've seen.
