Flickr App For iPhone Gets Huge Update, Wants To Be Your Fave Camera App
September 2nd, 2013 by Rod
Recently Yahoo’s photo community, Flickr, has been making moves for quite the comeback. Yahoo has been acquiring many companies lately, including photo app KitCam by GhostBird. Yesterday, they released an update for Flickr’s iPhone app aiming for the competition to let them know that they want their spot in the photo app world back.
What’s Different With the Flickr App Update?
Now equipped with a variety of live filters, controls for brightness, contrast, saturation, color balance and levels, color bursts, effects, sharpening, tilt shifts, and vignettes – all in one solution. Flickr now has a full suite of editing software at your disposal for a free range of photo manipulation at its best. And if you didn’t know already, Flickr offers its users 1TB of photo and video storage. How do you like that?
In our view, taking a photo should be an enhancement of what you’re experiencing and seeing through your device. We’ve come up with a camera that gives you full control over how your final photo looks, even before you snap the shot. Our goal is to make it effortless for you to have a beautiful result, with simple but powerful features.
