Bulkr development started back in December last year, and after almost 9 months, it is finally out of Beta! Thanks everyone for using Bulkr and making it one of the most popular Flickr download app! I developed Bulkr for my own personal use, and had never imagined that so many people would use it on a regular basis. Here are few numbers, which will give you and idea of how far Bulkr has come:
- Bulkr install count: 15,000+
- Authenticated Flickr users: 11,000+
- Photos download count: 18,000,000+ (That’s more than 18 million photos!)
- Bulkr is now in the top 5 app in the Flickr App Garden
I’ve spent the past few months gathering feedback from users and improving Bulkr. This is one of the reasons there has not been any blog post for a while 🙂
Today I’m happy to announce that a stable version of Bulkr – v1 has been released. With it Bulkr PRO has also been introduced. You can always install Bulkr for free but some of the features will be “locked”. To unlock all the features, you will need to purchase Bulkr PRO. Following are the features that will be unlocked if you upgrade to Bulkr PRO:
- Download title, tags, description to photo EXIF
- Browse upto 500 photos per page
- Full access to all photos and sets
- Select all, sort buttons enabled
- Lifetime upgrades
Bulkr has remained a free app for a long time. Of late, it’s development and support has demanded a lot of my time, so I’m hoping having a PRO version will justify the effort. However, I still want people to be able to use Bulkr to do basic stuff – the free version still packs a punch:
- One click backup your entire Flickr photostream
- Browse flickr photos in Flickr’s new large format
- Download original sized photos
If you are running a beta version of Bulkr and do not wish to upgrade to the new version, it’s completely cool. But please note that there will no longer be any support for the beta version. Also, the beta version will keep functioning, at least few months, after which you will be prompted to upgrade to version 1. Further notice will be posted here.
Once again, I want to thank everyone for supporting Bulkr and it’s development. All the feedback has been really valuable, and has made Bulkr what it is today.
Install Bulkr FREE and if you would like to support it’s development & unlock all the features, please consider going PRO!
