Snazzy new app
Most Android apps come with a native Flickr.com app, but in their newest version, users have all of the enhancements of competing photo sharing apps like PicPlz, Instagram and the like. Users can take photos from within the Android app andenhance them with filters like “Tokyo,” “NYC,” “Paris,” and others. Photos are then able to be sent to Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, and according to Flickr, “everywhere else you share photos.”
The new app makes better use of tags and maps/geotagging and offers better, more intuitive tracking of comments and activity of user photos and Flickr brags that users can “take advantage of gorgeous full screen browsing and slideshows” from within the app.
One of the features that makes Flickr popular for personal as well as professional use is that users can share photos only with the people they want to through Flickr’s privacy settings. The biggest complaint so far is that there is no groups option in the app, but it is possible that future versions could. There is no word for a dedicated iPhone app resembling this new Flickr app, but it is likely one will be released soon.
