Flickr for Windows Phone 7 updated: blank screen issues finally fixed

It took a little while but the guys behind the Windows Phone 7 Flickr application have finally released the 1.4 version of the app that definitely fixes the super annoying black screen bug that prevented it from launching 90% of the time. This update also includes small performances and stability improvements. The application can still be sluggish especially when downloading and displaying tons of thumbnails but this will unfortunately only be “fixed” once Mango is released later this year. The latest version of the OS will include an improved Listbox crontrol that will allow smooth scrolling in 3rd party apps and background image decoding (off-thread) that will prevent the UI thread from stalling when images are downloaded and processed.

You can grab the application here.
