Default [APP][2.1+] Flickr Earth -- discover the most interesting photos around you

Hello everyone,

I have been following xda-developers forum for a long time and I felt that I should share my first Android application here. I would really like people to try it and maybe be kind enough to return me with some positive/negative feedback. Please be gentle, since this is my first experience

My application is on the Market and it's named Flickr Earth. It especially focuses on displaying Flickr photographs according to the geographical location it was taken.

Some of the features of the app:
- Browse through photos taken near your current location
- Explore photos taken anywhere in the world by navigating through the map or searching for a target location
- Specify a geographical region (a country/continent) and search for a tag among the photos taken there
- Find exactly what you are looking for by making advanced search queries on Flickr (specify tags, date range, interestingness, etc.)
- View highly detailed information about any photo you stumble upon (e.g. tags, date taken, location on map, camera model, other photos by the same user)
- Save photos in your device or share it with your friends through e-mail, instant messengers or social networking sites

There are some screenshots attached to this post.

You can find the application on the market with name: Flickr Earth
Or, you can simply scan the QR image at the bottom, linking to the market page.

Thank you so much for your time.


Cheers,
Yunus

You hear lots of app ideas, but only the odd one really sticks out as something that could catch on. This is one of them. Downloading now

One thing I noticed was that sometimes it's a little hard to notice the white loading icon on the light background of the map, I thought the app had crashed until I looked at it closely.

Works very well though. Good job.

I totally agree with you on that. I have thought of that 2-3 weeks ago, but I think I am not able to change the color of the progress icon. Though, it may be sorted by fading out the color of the background map to grayish, so that it will be more visible.

I'll definitely have that fixed for the next release. Thanks for the idea!
