Migratr 0.1 Released

Lately I’ve become more and more enamored with Zooomr, but have been yearning for a free and easy way to get all my Flickr stuff moved over. Unfortunately, there has been some hooplah surrounding giving API keys to direct competitors who’ll just use them to suck up bandwidth and steal users.

However, there’s nothing stopping the average user from writing his OWN “Take my bat and ball, and go play at whatever stadium I want” application. That’s what Migratr is.

Inspired by long internet rants on data portability, and powered by the “FlickrNet”:http://www.codeplex.com/flickrnet library, Migratr lets you download your images from Flickr, and Upload them to Zooomr. In the future I’ll be adding import/export agnostic support (Choose your source, and your destination, between Flickr, Zooomr, and 23HQ!) and a 1-click “Migrate” button- However, as it stands, Zooomr’s launch hiccups have prevented them from allowing bulk uploads, so I’ve decided to release the app a little early (Notice how it’s not a 1.0, it’s 0.1. I’m trying to be honest here:P ) and adjust the UI so that you can download all your flickr images immediately. Then, when Zooomr’s accepting API-based-apps again, you can just go in and complete the upload portion as a seperate step, straight from your hard drive!

Currently, Migratr Supports:

* Import from Flickr, Export to Zooomr

* Title, Description, and tag data is maintained

More features will be added as time permits and user input generates. For now, enjoy!

alex. i can’t install it… says,”Unable to locate application file ‘Migratr Setup.msi’.”

OK, here’s some feedback:

1. Visual representation that the authorisation has gone OK.
2. A progress bar when the app’s actually pulling down photos, or a counter, or real-time preview or something.
3. Backup tool – schedule downloads, or support command line input (or PowerShell – email me if you want more info on that one)
4. It crashed:
FlickrNet.FlickrException: Invalid frob (108)

ok.. the msi worked for installing :)
and the first authenticate to flickr button gets me there ok..
the second button doesn’t seem to do anything, tho’

you want this feedback somewhere else…?

ok.. it seems to be working ok :)
some notification that it’s doing something would be nice.. or that it”s done doing something.. know what i mean..?
personally, i’ll be really happy if it just works like you say it will

it says success. that should be good, right?
all i have are a couple hundred jpg’s, 3k each, that say this photo unavailable..
and
i have several photos with the same name or no name, but only 1 jpg for each title

flickr does say that Migratr is authenticated ok
