Updates to Gmail and Yahoo! Go mobile apps

I mainly use Google’s mobile Gmail application on my E71 for my email needs. I’ve just heard that the application has been upgraded to version 2, and is considerably improved.

Also, users of Yahoo! Go will be pleased to know that version 3 has now been updated to work on the E71. Yahoo! Go is definitely worth installing if you use any of Yahoo’s services. I’m a long-time Flickr user, and Go’s Flickr interface is gorgeous – ideal for passing the time when you’re stuck on a train or bus. You can even upload photos from your phone. Yahoo! Go can also connect to the E71’s GPS and give you location-based information if you’re out and about and want to find things to do or places to eat.


Flickr releases stats for your photos and a new Uploadr

Flickr have just announced the release of a new detailed statistics feature for Pro members, as well as a new version of their desktop uploader.
Flickr Stats
Activating stats on your account (it took 2 minutes, not a day for me)

Detailed stats
Detailed statistics on your photos

You can activate stats on your Flickr account and peer back in time to when you first opened your Pro account.

A new Flickr Uploadr has also been released:
Flickr Uploadr 3

It does much the same things as the old uploader, but with an improved interface.

A nice double dose of Flickr news for a Friday morning 🙂


Flickr Gossip

Flickr have just launched a new and improved version of their slideshows. They are now much bigger, and have lots of lovely features like transparent notes, adjustable speed, and the URLs are much nicer.

Have a look at some nice photos of Stonehenge:

As read on TechCrunch, Flickr might soon be adding video, as well as Yahoo! closing! down! Yahoo! Photos!

The official thread over at Flickr makes interesting reading.
