Flickr - Is it just me?

I wonder if other forum members have the same problem? When I try to log on to Flickr, it slows to a snails pace and often fails to load. At the moment, it's not fit for purpose.

Have you tried a different browser?

Re: Flickr - Is it just me?

Thanks for the thought, I'm using my iPad most of the time but will try another browser on my PC but should I have to do that?

Re: Flickr - Is it just me?

I've been finding it very slow on Safari. I was blaming our wifi! At times it is timing out trying to upload albums.

Re: Flickr - Is it just me?

Using a Windows laptop with Internet Explorer, Flickr works fine. On my iPad v2 running 9.2.1, Flick crashes regularly. On the other hand, FlickStackr on the same iPad is rock steady and is highly recommended.

Re: Flickr - Is it just me?

I tired Flickr only yesterday on my desktop and it worked fine. But there have been problems accessing my albums in the past.

I don't use Flickr but I also recommend using Chrome on my iPad (for most things) & PC.

I'm not a subscriber and long ago gave up image searches.
