As part of Yahoo's recent app updates, which saw changes to its weather app and a major adjustment made to its Mail apps, the company's photo-sharing app Flickr has been updated to support better sharing and storing options on iOS 7. The latest Flickr for iOS app adds the ability to auto-upload photos to online accounts. Like Google+ and Dropbox, photos taken on an iOS 7 device can now be set to immediately upload to Flickr or wait until a Wi-Fi connection is established on the device. Photos uploaded will be stored in full-resolution.
Flickr also fixed bugs related to Google sign-in and added an Auto Straighten tool, putting it in square company with Instagram, which added the same feature weeks ago. Photos taken at a slant or unintentional angle can be edited to appear in an upright position. The editor will rotate and zoom until the photo looks straight. Of course, this is optional and won't override photos that were purposely taken at angle to achieve an effect.
