Perk up Flickr fans. The company announced today it’s releasing a new iOS app for shooting, sharing and discovering photos. And it’s actually pretty impressive.
Just like our Flickr site, you can upload unlimited photos from your camera roll, add your photos to groups and sets, add a venue from Foursquare and tag people. Best of all, the quality of the original photo is always preserved so you can continue to enjoy your photos for years to come.
You might be wondering why we are just now getting a Flickr app with all of these features. Well, Wired.com points out in a post about the app that Flickr basically missed the boat on mobile photo sharing due to its focus on integration instead of innovation when the company was bought by Yahoo! in 2005.
But it looks like Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer is switching some things up in the company. Forbes is even calling it “the best mobile photo app out there at the moment.”
Will you abandon Instagram and Twitter filters and switch to the new Flickr app? Seems like it might be worth it. Check it out and share your thoughts below.
