Although there is a ton of photo and video hosting services out there, the recent changes at Flickr where they offer folks 1TB of space has certainly helped the site grow a bit and it seems as though I get new notifications of folks signing up and using the service daily. Sadly, Flickr hasn't put together a BlackBerry 10 app and the chances of them doing so seem to be pretty slim to none considering Yahoo's CEO, Marissa Mayer doesn't think BlackBerry is relevant. No matter though, because a third-party developer has now stepped up to the challenge and released a new Flickr app for BlackBerry 10 called FlickrUp.
FlickrUp is a Qt and Cascades based Flickr app that offers a full set of features for those looking to make use of the service on their BlackBerry 10 smartphone. It taps into the Flickr API offered and as such, allows for many of things you'd expect from a full fledged Flickr app such as full support for browsing user profiles, photo streams, photosets, galleries, favorites and even groups. Of course, you can also upload images direct from your camera roll with full customization for visibility, title, tags and privacy.
FlickrUp isn't perfect though, it does cost $.99 and it lacks some features of the official apps such as the ability to add filters to photos along with the capability to upload videos. Those things aside, it's still a great option for anyone not wanting to side load the Android version of the official Flickr app, especially if you don't really feel the need to add a filter to every photo you upload to the service. You can grab FlickrUp from BlackBerry World right now for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones; hit the link below to see more if the app in action or to purchase it.
