    Untappd already can host images. On a few occasions I've used it by jiggering around and getting the image URL through my browser and using it in the BA forums.

    My suggestion: Give us an easy way in the Untappd app and/or on the website to grab the URL (or the BB Code to embed one). Long-tap and "Copy embed code" or some such? I don't even care about the entry point.

    Pros: Seems like an easy dev task to provide it. Provides an "official" hosting solution to end all of the confusion and fluctuation with the various image hosting sites. Gives BA forum die-hards a reason to care about Untappd. Makes it easier for Untappd die-hards to justify sharing on BA forums.

    Cons: Bandwidth usage for Untappd? Possibility of abuse? Not sure what else.

    Thanks for the feedback, but I've already stated that we plan on eventually launching a new image solution for BA. No ETA at the moment, but it's high on my list of things to tackle.
