This Flickr Java library by Paul Bourke was created to interact with Android devices. In the documentation page, developers can access info about the REST API, availability on GitHub and Google Code, and a complementary previous FlickrJAPI library on Sourceforge as a reference. New functions on this library include GalleryInterface and CollectionInterface.
Instagram has deprecated much of its public API effective immediately. In a changelog published today, the popular Facebook-owned social media sharing platform announced that the endpoints for Follows and Relationships, Public Content Commenting, Likes and User Search have been removed.
Well, maybe not forever. But Wednesday's announcement that popular iPhone photo app Hipstamatic can now post their snapshots directly to Instagram's photo sharing network is pretty huge. This marks the first time the Instagram API has allowed a third-party app to add content to its growing social network, clocked at 27 million registered users earlier this month. For developers who couldn't wait for Instagram to publish its API (resourceful hackers reverse-engineered the system back in December, 2010), this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
