Now this is one announcement that photography enthusiasts are going to love. Many have longed for Flickr to release an official iPad app and finally the Yahoo-owned service has listened. The official Flickr for iPad application has been released. Flickr’s new app makes it easier for users to access, organize and share their pictures using what is arguably the most popular tablet on the planet.
Flickr for iPad has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the iPad’s larger display. The design is consistent with that of Flickr’s iOS app that has been available for iPhone and iPod touch for quite some time now. The app is capable of displaying high resolution images by delivering up to 3,000,000 pixels per photo.
The new application also include camera functionality so users can take pictures and share to Flickr straight from within the application. Flickr’s new iPad app also brings the ability to capture videos and photos with live filters. Photo feeds can be browsed in either portrait or landscape with the layout being optimized for iPad. It is also possible to customize profile with background photo, avator, website links and more.
The only prerequisite here is that you have iOS 8.0 or later in order to download and install this new Flickr application, which is now available for free via the iTunes App Store.
