Say Hello to Flickr for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7!

Back in January, we let you know about some exciting mobile developments we had in store for you, and some of you may have already caught a sneak peak of the newest member of our family here at Flickr. Today, we’re excited to officially introduce Flickr for Windows 7® and Flickr for Windows Phone 7®!

With these two new apps, you’ll have everything you expect from Flickr (and more!) right on your Windows 7® and Windows Phone 7® devices. Here are some of the features we’re most excited about:

  • Swipe through panoramic blades to see all your recent activity, latest uploads from your contacts and all your newest uploads.
  • Fully optimized for brilliant hi-resolution display. Tap on a photo to bring up a full-screen lightbox view and zoom in to enlarge and get close up on details in a photo. You’ll be able to access your photos in their original resolution, right from your mobile device!
  • On Windows 7 Slate devices, we’re introducing “Context View”, a whole new way to get the full story behind a photo and discover new and relevant content. Zoom out from a photo in lightbox view and get more information such as other photos in the set, group, from a contact or nearby on a map.
  • Geo-location capabilities display your photos on an interactive, full-screen map. Also view nearby geo-tagged photos from the Flickr community on the map as well for a slightly different view of the world around you.
  • Easily share photos to your friends from your mobile device directly to Flickr and also from Facebook, Twitter or email!
