Flickr App Gets Redesign and New Filters

Yahoo yesterday released an update for its iOS mail app, and today the company is continuing with its product revamp, launching an updated version of its Flickr iPhone app.
That's why we're excited to introduce a redesigned Flickr app for iPhone and iPod touch, making it easier than ever to capture, share, and discover beautiful photos – all from the palm of your hand. This latest app also includes many of the best Flickr.com features, including editing and managing your photos, making them accessible wherever you are. Because we store your photos in full resolution, they’ll be crisp and clear even when you zoom in on the smallest details.

We built the app with sharing in mind – whether by email, with the Flickr community, or your favorite social network. We’ve worked hard with our partners to make sure your pictures are displayed beautifully on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.
The new Flickr app features a long awaited redesign, with clean, simple lines and big photo thumbnails, which makes browsing through photos a pleasant experience.

There’s also an included camera, which allows for photo taking within the app, and a set of 16 filters that can be used to apply retro effects to photos, much like Instagram and the newly updated Twitter app. You can also crop and enhance with the built-in photo editor.



Sharing tools have been enhanced, adding the ability to share photos simultaneously with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or email. Full Groups capabilities, which were previously reserved for the web version of Flickr can now be found in the app.

Most impressively, viewing photos is a much improved experience, with a landscape mode full screen view and pinch-to-zoom tools.

Flickr for the iPhone is a free app and can be downloaded from the App Store.

What is the deal with all of this filter c°°°. Very few pro photographers can pull of what the filters strive to emulate, let alone Joe public. Very few pictures do not come out far worse with a filter applied, which makes me question why anyone uses them...
