Flickr app launched for snap-happy Android owners

  • by

Android mobile owners who like sharing their snaps can now benefit from online photo album Flickr in a new app version through the Android Market.

Already available for iPhone, the Yahoo! owned picture store hosts over 6 billion images online and now mobile users running Google’s Android operating software can upload high resolution photos directly from their phone via the in-app camera then save them in galleries – or for easy sharing on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. The app can also help snapsters sort and categorise their own pictures as well as searching others using the built in filters.

Additional features include location-based ‘geo-tagging’ and full screen browsing. Also add a description or story behind your beloved memories, or adjust privacy settings for those more personal pics. There’s the option to receive notifications when someone comments on your photos – borrowing some features from that popular Social Network.

Flickr version 1.0 is available now on the Android Market, requiring Android 2.1 or above and it’s complete free to download, use the camera function and upload your pics. If your a newcomer to Flickr you can easily log-in with your exsiting Google details – Snap away!
