flickr authentication doesn't seem to be working or is not being saved. I tried it several times but after authenticating and getting back to instagram.app it doesn't show the toggle buttons for flickr. it's also not just me - saw some others report about this bug on twitter as well

strange thing is that on flickr.com it says there are write permissions http://cl.ly/a777f597949afead8a63

I have the same problem too, where the app redirects me to flickr, but when i go back to instagram, the flickr sharing option is still not enabled.

its funny though, coz when I check on flickr, it says that instagram is already an approved extension.

Ugh! I hate to think I have to upgrade just to share to Flickr! Since I have to unlock my iPhone for use on T-Mo I haven't upgraded in a while. Is the only solution upgrading?

I don't want to upgrade to 4.1 either 'cause it has problems on my 3G iPhone - was hoping there would be an upgrade to the app itself to fix the flickr problem.

Hey everyone,

We found a problem with devices without backgrounding when doing Flickr authentication, which we just fixed and will be submitting to Apple soon, so our next update will let you properly authenticate with Flickr. Sorry for the trouble!

Hey everyone,

This is a bug in version 1.0 that has been fixed in the latest release of Instagram. Please go to the App Store and update your app to version 1.0.2. The new version has a new icon, so you should be able to tell right away whether you're seeing the latest version in the App Store.

I'm running version 1.5.2, and am encountering this problem with flickr. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, and am still unable to authenticate to my flickr account.
