  • milestone changed from Mobile Colloquy 1.1 to Mobile Colloquy 1.2

We should do this for 1.2, not 1.1.

I'll take Jane description and add more, please don't hate me for that! They are just suggestions, I think it will give really a big plus to Mobile Colloquy.

  1. Other than free services, it will be nice to have also the Twitter Image Sharing APIs supported, so that the users who are used to them and want all their images stored to their accounts, can use it. Note that for almost all of the following images hoster, the API is quite always the same. These are just example, I'm not saying you should support them all:
    1. TwitPic? (API)
    2. yFrog (which is still from ImagesHack?, API)
    3. Twitgoo (API)
    4. img.ly (API)
    5. pix.im (API)
  2. (s)FTP settings to upload to the own server, ala Skitch.

I think the idea of relying, by default, on a free hoster is perfect, but the user should be able to choose for something else too. Usually free hoster are slow and not stable as someone would expect.

This feature is still interresting and miss really.
Imgur has a usable API for that too.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
