Yahoo Releases Offical Flickr Application in App Store

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

Flickr Today, yahoo released an official Flickr application. the app is well designed for the iPhone and iPod touch and does allow for some basic Flickr functionality. The first time you open the app, you will need to login to your account and authorize the application. These are both done in Safari… it would have been nice if it would have been built into the app.

Once you are all setup you can view your photo stream, tags, sets, favorites, contacts, recent activity, leave comments, search Flickr, mark images as favorites, upload photos and videos, edit photos and videos…etc (check out the App Store description below).

When you upload an image you can add a title, description, tags, add it to a set, turn on the current location tag and set the privacy level.

The application has a nice design and everything is formatted well for the iPhone. It worked really well on WiFi and did decently well on Edge… it was a little laggy but, I think that is to be expected. Overall, a nice application.
