Future Versions

FlickrSync is developed on free time and there is no commitment to release new features. But we'll keep trying updating it with new features. See some of our backlog below

There are several things you can do to help support development of new features:

  • FlickrSync is open source. If you are a programmer, you can contribute with code for new features. Checkout more on the Source Code page. We would be particularly interested if anyone manages to compile and run FlickrSync on Linux and Mac, using Mono.
  • Send you own suggestions to our mailbox: flickrsync@gmail.com
  • Give a donation using PayPal (just click on the icon on the left) and/or visit this website regularly. We would also appreciate if you bookmark it on your favorite social networks.
  • Blog about this and link to this website
  • Next Release Candidates
