“Congratulations! Getting canceled”
It looks like RIM will be discontinuing the Flickr Uploader for BlackBerry. The app would let you upload images from your BlackBerry to a Flickr account, and it was really helpful for those Flickr power users. The discontinuation of the app could provide opportunities for third party developers to use Flickr’s API to make their own app. Click through after the jump to read the notice.
As of March 1st, 2011, BlackBerry smartphone users will not be able to download or use the Flickr Uploader for BlackBerry smartphones to wirelessly upload images from a BlackBerry smartphone to a Flickr account.
Users may receive the following message when attempting to upload a photo:
Request Failed. Please try again later
To continue uploading your favorite photos to a Flickr account after March 1st, 2011, visit the Flickr mobile site using your BlackBerry Browser*:
This is the 2nd photography app that RIM has canceled on us too. Perhaps they’re moving out of the space so they don’t step on any dev’s toes.
