Photonic really enhanced my enjoyment of my Flickr account. It's very intuitive and easy to use. That's good because there is no help or any documentation that I could find. There are some gotchas, for instance, you cannot create & upload photos as a set within the program. We cannot currently create sets in Photonic. One of the developers stated that "this is so far the single most common feature request by a wide margin, and we're looking into providing this ability in a future release." That would be great! The other issue I found was that I only got a small, incomplete, subset of mostly recent photos when I searched for specific tags. All in all, it looks like a good start.

Version 1.0.1

My initial enthusiasm for Photonic has waned. Apparently the developers feel similarly. Nothing done in over a year. Disappointed. Deduct two stars.


The last entry in the developers Twitter feed that I can see is from March '09 where he indicates that he has other priorities, so it looks like this app is dormant. Shame, I'm sure this app had great promise as OS X Flickr clients are scarce.
