Yahoo Finally Unveils New Flickr for iPad App

By Anthony Thurston on October 18th 2014

Yahoo’s continued quest to bring Flickr back to the forefront of online photo sharing may be a losing battle, but you can’t fault the company for trying. Their latest attempt at improving the photo network’s profile is a new iOS app version specifically for iPad.

The new app is optimized to fully utilize that wonderful extra screen space on the Ipad over its smaller iPhone siblings. Other optimizations include improved layout and browsing options, which make the experience on the iPad vastly improved.

Not only does the app itself look and run better on iPads, but the images displayed will look better too. Yahoo has announced that the new app will display images with a max size of 3mp, to take full advantage of iPads with retina displays.

Yahoo has also improved upon the app’s photo taking experience, allowing users to take images with live filter previews and some impressive editing options. No wait needed on this app either, you can download it now from the app store.

    IT’s about time. I can’t belive it’s taken them this long. Only played with it for about 5 minutes, but looks nice.

    About freaking time! Actually it’s well past the right time, they missed this by about three years!

    Have not set up a flickr acct as yet, but this should help flickr and those that are part of the community.

    I don’t use Flickr, because I am present on Blogger, but I think that this app will help a lot of people from their vibrant community.
