Many of us use Flickr to share our pictures with family and friends, and until just recently there was no easy way to upload these from your Android phone directly, other than e-mailing them. But Flickr just announced devices running Android 2.2 can upload from the browser, and while it is not a full standalone application with proper gallery integration, it sure beats having to transfer them to the computer to upload them, or emailing them all. We continue to hope for a standalone application to make this process even better then it has become, but we will be thankful for what we have now! [Flickr Blog via Android Central Forums]

Works fine with HTC Sense?
I have a HTC Desire running 2.2 and Sense and just tried it and it works great :)

Some have told me that the Share menu in the Gallery has "Flickr" as an entry. But not on the Droid I (FRG22D).

Still waiting for the app from Yahoo/Flickr.

With HTC Sense you can share to flickr already. Handy feature though for Android in general.

Upstream works great with froyo. It's on the market and works with the gallery.

Flickroid has so far worked pretty well for me.

I've been uploading to Flickr from the Share menu in the Gallery since I bought my Droid Incredible on 9/6/10. I can even select multiple items. Adding the browser functionality is nice, but I don't see it being easier than the built in functionality I already have.
