Flickr received a massive update to version 4.0 today that introduces an auto-uploader, a new “elegant, approachable” design, easy photo edits, improved browsing, and better searching. The update isn’t just on Android, though, instead Yahoo is pushing this overhaul from the web and out to all of their properties, including iOS.
If for whatever reason, you aren’t a fan of Dropbox or Google+’s auto backup solutions, now would be the time to try out Flickr. Yahoo is giving everyone 1,000GB of photo storage, so you can auto-upload all of the photos on your device for safe keeping. So you know, the photos are all kept private automatically until you tell Flickr to do something else with them. Flickr also attempts to organize all of your auto-uploaded photos, makes it easier to find specific photos, and gives you access to a built-in photo editor.
