Yahoo's image and video hosting website Flickr has released an update to its iOS app, which contains a new "Auto Upload" feature that saves images in their original resolution and uploads them directly to the service. Auto Upload can also be toggled to save images only when connected to a Wi-Fi network or enabled on both Wi-Fi and cellular connections, and all saved images are marked as private by default. The update also contains a new auto-straighten tool and fixes for users signing in with Google.

Flickr received attention earlier this year when it began offering 1 TB of free photo storage space and underwent a major design overhaul. As previously speculated, Flickr is also now integrated within iOS 7, as users can choose to share photos directly to Flickr from the Photos app or various third-party apps with the functionality.

The last major update to Flickr for iOS came in August, when live filters and professional editing capabilities were added to the app. Flickr is a free download on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Still looks like iOS 6. Not going on my phone.

Ew, iOS 6; that's so 5 weeks ago.

So if I do burst mode, does it upload the full burst or just the "best of the bunch"?

Why is there no iPad app? I'd love to just grab my iPad, open flickr and show people my photos. Is that really too much to ask?

Best I can do is load up flickr in the iOS version of Chrome, which fails to load properly.

Can't see a way to upload existing stuff on Camera Roll.
Doesn't seem there's such an option at the moment, would be handy though.

Other than that it's a nice way to back everything up, especially if you take lots of pics and in a possession with a 16GB device only.
If you click on the camera icon in the middle of the bottom toolbar you should be able to go to your existing photos (and Camera Roll) by selecting the photo thumbnail on the bottom left of the camera screen, and from there you should be able to select photos to upload.

Or, as one of the in-app tips mentions, simply double tap the camera icon in the middle of the bottom toolbar and that should take you directly to Camera Roll to select photos to upload.
