Flickr unveils dedicated iPhone app

updated 10:55 am EDT, Tue September 8, 2009

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.

    more limited than flickr mobile

    I have been hoping/waiting for this app for a while, as the flickr mobile site is very limited when it comes to photo set management (add to set, rearranging sets, etc) - and when using an eye-fi card, these are essential tools. and none of the third-party flickr iphone apps do it either.

    but the flickr iphone app appears to be more limited than flickr mobile - i can't even rename a photo. the interface is great and load times are better, but i'm hoping for some future updates with lots more content mgmt functionality.
