I was still experimenting w the bucket. It no longer exists to me.

Anyone use imgur app from android phone to u/l?
Im anti-bloated-superfluous-apps. Chaps my hide. Anyway is it worthy enough to get that one task done w/o 35mb a week in updates?

If you use the app it won't give you the direct and bbcode links to the image you uploaded so I find it useless. I just use the browser.

I found a workaround on mobile without having to use the app itself. Upload from the browser interface.

imgur.com/upload

On any mobile device, once the page has loaded with the image and all the other ancillary stuff, click and hold on the image until you can open it in another tab. That gives you the direct link to the image so you should see a suffix like ".jpg" in the URL and also the pixel size, I believe. Use that direct URL. When you post on this forum use the forum's "Img" button to give you the BB code and paste within that.

Not quite sure what you're doing cheapski. After uploading using the browser I get this screen and just select bbcode from the drop down menu top left.

Check out this chart for photobucket popularity from Alexa.com

We aren't the only ones who have given up on it.

Ah they changed the interface so that there’s now an Original interface option along with Mobile. I don’t get the same screen as you SnS but the original UI now gives the BB code.

Edit: nope it didnt work. This is weird, the iPhone is different from my iPad and the method I outlined is the one I use on my iPad.
