Sunlit, the impressive photo journaling app for iOS that we wrote about in January, has responded to the disappointing news around this week, and now allows users to log in using Flickr. The app had initially required an account.

Although it is no longer a requirement, connecting Sunlit to an account on is the only way to unlock advanced features, such as syncing, in-app social sharing and collaborations with multiple users. Manton Reece,the developer behind Sunlit, explains on his blog that he still believes in the developer tools and community, calling it “too good a platform to give up on.”


Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see whether other apps follow suit and open up to non-users. If you’re into photos and use Flickr, Sunlit is worth taking a look at.
