Flickr saves the day xox


My love affair with Instagram has come to a rather abrupt end. After downloading the latest update I've experienced nothing but trouble....continual crashing! I can open the app and peep at everyone's photos but as soon as I try to take a photo myself the app instantly crashes. If I comment it crashes. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail.... crash.
It seems quite timely that Instagram have delivered the latest version and it's oh, so wrong! No doubt you've come across the uproar Instagram insighted earlier this week when it stated in the terms and conditions that they would be able to use peoples content without approval.
It has the stench of Facebook and leaves a soar taste..... The LF sent this article today which helped clear things up but did little to fix my app in real time.

Meanwhile, I've reverted to an old faithful, Flickr. Their iPhone camera app within Flickr is definitely worth a look and their ethos is a whole sweeter than IG..... xox

The new Flickr app is a big improvement! And sorry to hear you've had trouble with the upgraded Instagram.
I thought this Slate article had an interesting comparison of the terms of service of all the major web providers:

Thanks Suzy! Great article. Sadly my Instagram is still on the blink. I'm missing my IG community.
