It’s been almost a year since RIM updated the official Flickr app for BlackBerry. Therefore it comes with no surprise that RIM has officially canned the app. Personally I never really found use for the Flickr app, but at least users can still setup an email address to send photos to Flickr, or manage them from Flickr’s mobile site. Here’s RIM’s statement in their KB database:
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*: http://m.flickr.com
