Simplifies browsing, submissions
Yahoo has introduced a dedicated Flickr application for the iPhone, which attempts to promote the media-sharing service and simplify its use. The app can upload both photos and videos from an Apple handheld, with the option of geotagging the former. As on the Flickr website, photos can be organized according to sets and tags.
Browsing commands let users search through recent images, ones from yourself and contacts, and those located by keyword. Searches can be narrowed according to the subjects, people or places involved. Once files are found, they can be commented on or marked as a favorites. The app is a free download from the App Store, and requires iPhone 3.0 firmware.
