Photo sharing service 500px has released a significant update to its iOS app, which includes features such as a new edge-to-edge design for full resolution photos as well as new swipe gestures for inline "Like" and "Reply" actions. The iPad version of the app now also displays an improved photo details drawer showing user interaction such as likes and favorites, and a refined Flow interface featuring user avatars and activity.

We've made 500px for iOS an even better way to find your inspiration and to show off your best work. With an all-new visual design, the world's best photography fills every screen from edge to edge, making 500px feel right at home in iOS.

500px's iOS app was the subject of controversy earlier this year after it was pulled for containing questionable content in the form of nude photos, but the app returned a week later after fixing the issue. 500px last saw a major update this past April, which brought performance enhancements and features such as the Flow interface for the iPad.

500px can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Does anyone actually use this instead of Instagram? I'm genuinely curious.

You mean instead of Flickr? Instagram is far from being the same thing.

500px seems to have a lot of amazing photos. But unlike Flickr or Interfacelift or WallpapersWide you have to pay to download the pictures. The others are free. Just choose the resolution you want.

Well yeah, because they're not the same thing. 500px is a photo-sharing community for actual photographers, not a wallpaper download website.

No .

Generally Instagram is associated with family/friends/phone photos, Flickr is for almost everything but mainly low end dslr pics, and 500px is for top quality professional grade pictures.

I like the app but there are pictures with HDR abuse that are just wrong.
Worst thing is that reviewers go "beautiful!!!/awesome!!!/colorful!!!/I love the dramatic intense colors!!!"
It is what sells nowadays.
