Does anybody know what happened to Zooomr? They started out as a promising competitor to Flickr, and I recall hearing good things about their API. Katie, Sam, and I joined back in 2006 when they were giving away free, lifetime Pro accounts.
I had linked to a photo on their servers in an old blog post, and noticed today that the link was broken. I logged in and found that my account is un-Pro now, though Katie’s and Sam’s seem to have retained their Pro status. All of my photos and my profile info are gone. Katie’s profile is blank. She seems to have one photo there, but I can’t open it. Sam has a few photos, but again, I can’t open them.
I emailed tech support, but I was thinking maybe someone else had heard something about the company that might be helpful. I did notice that they seem to be associated with Zoho, and when you email tech support a copy goes to a “feedback” address at a .jp (Japanese) domain. Their “help” info resides on a Zoho wiki, which was down when I tried to access it. (I can’t get to anything at Zoho, in fact — glad I don’t rely on them!)
Crunchbase seems to consider Zooomr a going concern.
