Flickr users, your Android experience has finally been improved. No longer will you have to use an app that’s not up to par with its iOS sibling. As of this week, there’s a new Flickr version for Android in town, and it brings many much needed UI improvements as well as some useful new features.

In terms of UI, you can now make use of a new and improved menu, featuring tabs for notifications, profile, camera, recent uploads, and a better explore tab for interesting and nearby images. When tapping the camera icon, you will be able to choose your favorite camera app, no longer being limited to Flickr’s own. You can now also use the app to edit your photos’ details or metadata, which previously could only be done through the website.

These are only highlights, though. Among the new additions you’ll also find:

  • Improved search
  • HTML content in comments and descriptions
  • Pull down feature to refresh content on screen

And, of course, you’ll find other bug fixes.

Yahoo’s Flickr is the first big photo sharing platform, and while it’s not in the news as much as it used to be, it still boasts quite a lot of users. This Android update is the first Flickr has received in quite a while, and could be crucial for keeping it in the photo-sharing game.


What do you think of the updated Flickr? Great, or too little too late?

    Unfortunately, it's still nothing to me because it's not compatible with the Nexus 7.

      Is it not compatible with Nexus 7 ?, all tablets or just Nexus 7 ?
