It was two years ago that Flickr released an app for the iPhone, but now Android users have finally been invited to the party. Flickr's new app for Android smartphones lets users upload photos, as well as make minor edits and add effects filters to images.
The Flickr app for Android features a built-in camera interface, with adjustable settings for flash and autofocus. There are 10 filters and effects that you can use to adjust the photos after they are captured. The pictures can then be uploaded to a Flickr account and shared with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or by email. You can also browse your photostream, your contacts photos, or check out your profile. The Flickr app sports an "infinite scrolling" feature that allows a user to browse through photos on one single page, no matter how many there are.
The new Flickr for Android app is free and available in the Android Market now. It's a pretty slick app, with some nice features, even if it is a bit late to the rodeo.
