Here at Flickr, we’re focused on making the best possible products to capture, manage, share and discover photos - creating an amazing window into your world. Building these products and cultivating our amazing photography community has been our mission since Flickr started 10 years ago. We want Flickr to be your favorite experience no matter where you are. Today we’re delighted to release completely new versions of Flickr for iPhone, iPod touch and Android.
So, what’s new? Below are the highlights. For more details, check out the Flickr blog.
Capture video: We’re always listening to our users and know you want video. The wait is officially over. Capture and edit HD video directly in the app, upload it, use the same live filters available for photos.
Smarter search with auto-tagging: Thanks to a more intelligent search engine, as well as improved auto-tagging, you can quickly find what you’re looking for, no matter how many photos you have. Flickr understands the geo-locations and time of your photos, can also detect the color, and often who’s in them and what they are about. And we do all this with lightning fast speed.
Simpler navigation and sharing: We’ve simplified the navigation so it’s much easier to use your three favorite Flickr features — feed, camera, and photostream. With a beautifully redesigned photostream, sharing any Flickr photo with friends and family — or directly to Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook — is easier than ever before.
Detailed photo data: We’re also helping you discover more about the photo with enhanced information. Find out where the photo was taken, which camera and lens were used to create each shot, and more. Use the story behind the photo to help improve your own photography skills.
