I wrote a post a couple months ago asking Flickr why they can’t add automatic photo upload to their Android app. Today, Yahoo made a lot of updates to Flickr, along with their purchase of Tumblr, but that’s a whole other story.
The new Flickr Android app interface is definitely better than it was. But it’s still missing the one key feature that it needs, and that’s automatic photo uploading. Dropbox does it, Google+ does it, there’s even third party apps to do this with Flickr, even though none seem to work any longer.
I managed to kind of sync my phone photos to Flickr. It involves using Ifttt, copying my photos to a specific public Dropbox folder, and telling Ifttt to send all photos in that folder to Flickr. Not the best solution but it’s all I’ve got for now.
Yahoo, please, please add automatic photo uploading in the next version of your Android app. I’m literally begging you. Flickr is supposed to be the place that ALL my photos end up, but that can’t be until you implement automatic photo uploading.
I’ve been a Pro member for at least 7 years. The least you can do is hook me up with a much needed feature.
This site now sits on a server at FlipHost. I got a Storage250 server from them and added some RAM, and here we are. It’s really a pretty nice setup.
Pretty much everything I’ve setup I’ve done according to guides from Linode. Most of the guides in the Linode Library should apply at least somewhat to FlipHost.
This site was previously on Dreamhost, but there’s been a LOT of downtimethererecently, awholelot. Yah, I just linked to 6 posts from dreamhoststatus.com that were posted from May 12 through May 17. Crazy.
I’ve already canceled the one VPS that I had at Dreamhost. May keep the shared account around for some other sites, but may end up moving absolutely everything to FlipHost. I haven’t really decided yet.
Here’s the full description straight from the TWRP site:
Team Win Recovery Project 2.4, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.
Installing TWRP on your Google Nexus 4 is pretty simple. The TWRP site has good instructions, but I always forget how to update when a new version is released. And checking the actual TWRP site was something I didn’t think of doing, because I thought I had installed TWRP through a separate tool (which I did).
So, the suggested method for installing TWRP to your Google Nexus 4 (and the method I use) is really straight forward. You’ll need root.
