Yahoo's Flickr Launches Its First Android Application
The power of photo sharing--that's what you'll exactly get from Flickr's first Android-powered application. Yahoo's Flickr just introduced its newest feature that will allow its users of its popular photo service to quickly and easily share pictures in real time with family and friends.
The new Android app brings the Flickr photo stream to Google's mobile Operating System (OS). The company has included a new activity stream for viewing photos--one that's essentially a newsfeed of activity among your Flickr friends. You can browse photo albums or check out the albums of friends.
Viewing an image on Flickr's Android app is a different experience compared to its iPhone app. The Android app adds features such as likes, comments, photo data and a map showing where the photo was taken. Users can swipe left or right to browse a photo album. There is also a fullscreen experience for browsing photos that includes a slideshow feature.
Yahoo's Flickr boasts a hefty 68 million registered users around the world that has uploaded more than 6 billion photos.
