ios – Image Search API

It really depends what youre looking for. The major alternatives out there are Yahoos Boss API, Bings Image Search API, and Flickrs API which you mentioned.

Bing and Yahoo both have larger amounts of images than Flickr.

Flickr is more lenient in terms of what you can actually do with the images however. Both Bing and Yahoo limit what you can do. For example, Bing doesnt allow you to reorder your search results and Yahoo has a hard-limit on the number of requests you can make. Flickr allows you to do basically anything as long as you dont spam requests or abuse their users rights to the images.

Bing also tends to have the more detailed search engine, as you can search for different colors, and categories than Yahoo or Flickr.

In the end, Id advise reading over their respective Terms of Services(Flickr, Bing, Yahoo), and using the one that fits what project you have in mind.

I hope this helps, and good luck!
