I am trying the App “Photobucket” the first time. At first I want to say that it gives you a lot of functions and does exactly what you expect it to do. But since you saw already that I just gave it 3 out of 5 has a reason. The reason is simply: “Why the hell is it so slow when loading”. It is pretty annoying after some time. It sometimes gets so slow when loading the pictures, that it doesn’t even react on my tapping commands. This is sad because it look everything not bad and I knew what to do with it from the first impression. There was no explanation needed at all for me.

But performance is a real draw back in apps on the Windows Phone 7. If it would be faster I would be happy to give nearly 5 out of 5 point. But wait, why nearly? 🙂
Because there is this branding and under that the headlines of the panorama view so that it already occupies on third of the screen height. So please make the logo small (like the Facebook app) everybody knows where it comes from. So no need to oversize the logo! 🙂

But anyway, this is a good start but  some things to improve. So that’s why I give 3 out 5 stars.
