RIM Picasa Application Seems To Be Gone For Good

PicasablackberryappwhatsupI had big hopes for this application. I actually saw it working at CES in January. Fully functional and everything, even geotagging! I got fed up with RIM and ranted about this earlier last month and got nowhere with any of my contacts. There was a rumor that it got scrapped due to difficulties and the Flickr app replaced it. Can’t confirm or deny that.

One of our readers Jeremy sent me an email today that put the final nail in the coffin. He spotted the fact that the pages on RIM’s website that used to refer to the Picasa application have all been pulled. They now all result with 404 page not found errors.

You can see for yourself:

Seriously what a shame… I really hope I am wrong and this is just a fluke.

  1. I hope its a fluke also. I have hundreds of photos on Picassa and a half-dozen on Flickr. Would be nice to upload images on Picassa instead of just browsing the website.

  2. I am kind of upset at this also, I have a bunch of photos on Picasa also. I feel like Flickr is dumb, I dont know why, but im more of a Google Groupie. I love all of their projects.

  3. This totally sucks! Unless I want to pay I can only have 3 albums on Flickr, which I already have, so the Flickr app is useless for me.

  4. Check out http://www.shozu.com, you can upload photos to a million sites including Picasa.
