Ads by Google

The widely popular photo sharing site,, released yesterday a completely redesigned version of its iPhone photo and video app. Users should find the new user interface even easier to use, with additional unique camera filters, Full Groups capabilities, and the viewing of Flickr’s selected local and worldwide “Interesting” photos.

The app has its own camera shooting tools, including an optional grid composition tool, automatic flash, access to the iPhone’s front facing camera, editing and enhancement tools, and 16 new filters.

The new redesign gives users access to the five major sections of their Flickr account — Photo Sets, Groups, Favorites, Self-portraits, and Contacts — from the app’s home page.

Similarly to the previous version, a user’s photos are presented in a scrolling Photostream. Another home button presents a scrolling page of recent photo sharing activities and comments by a user’s Contacts. All photos can be viewed in slideshow and landscape mode, and comments and favorite starring can be added to photos from within the app.

The new app also includes 16 photo filters, and more than 12 different editing and enhancement tools, including Crop, Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Redeye, Drawing, and Text. In addition to public photo sharing, the app includes flexible privacy options for user only, and/or designated friends and family. The Preferences settings allow users to disable the filters so they don’t show up in the app’s photo editor.

The Yahoo! Flickr app is also now optimized for iPhone 5, and it can be downloaded on any Apple mobile device running iOS 4.3 or later.
