The photo-centric website and app Flickr, is pushing a major 3.0 update out to iOS and Android. Flickr states that it is looking to get “back to the heart” of taking and enjoying photography with the latest update, bringing a fresh UI and new set of features.
Once updated, users will be greeted with a new design that feels familiar to anyone who has used Instagram before. A photo stream can be scrolled through that blows up the pictures to fit the size of your device’s screen so you can enjoy at high resolution. The photography fanatics can even dig deeper and get all the statistics on each photo; what camera it was taken with, what the camera’s settings were, where the picture was taken, and so forth.
Flickr is also allowing users to take 30-second high-definition videos to upload to their profiles. A new Auto Sync option will even take care of the heavy lifting, uploading photos to your account in the background when you snap them. With camera options, filters and other settings to get photo geeks going, Flickr wants to be the only photo app you need on your phone with this 3.0 update.
