Capture moments.

We know that some of your best photo moments happen on the fly, so we’ve made it easier to get the perfect shot when inspiration hits. Once you get the shot, there’s a built-in editor to quickly correct, crop, or enhance it with one of the new high res filters.

Share with the world.

When you’re in the mood to share, you can do so simultaneously via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or email. We’ve worked with our partners to ensure that your photos look gorgeous no matter where they are viewed, on or off Flickr.

The new Flickr iPhone App

Just like our Flickr site, you can upload unlimited photos from your camera roll, add your photos to groups and sets, add a venue from Foursquare and tag people. Best of all, the quality of the original photo is always preserved so you can continue to enjoy your photos for years to come.


At Flickr, photos are part of our DNA so we put your photos first, starting with the photo view. Want to see more pixels? Tilt your phone to the side and you’ll see the photo in full screen. As you pinch to zoom in, the photo will stay sharp and crisp. When you find something you like, you can comment on and favorite photos with a single tap.

The new Flickr iPhone App

We know that some of you love details, so we didn’t overlook them. You can always see where and how a photo was taken, which sets and groups it belongs to, and who is tagged.

In our new Contacts view, we’ve made it easy to discover photos from your friends or favorite photographers. It’s fast and easy to scroll through your contacts and feel like you were there for your friend’s recent road trip or see the world through the lenses of the photographers you follow.

The new Flickr iPhone App

With all the content in Flickr Groups, you can stay up-to-date with your community. View the photos, connect with people and upload your own images to the groups you love.

Finally, don’t forget to check out the new Explore tab to see the most interesting photos uploaded every day. You can see the photos that have been captured around you, whether you are in the heart of Paris or in your home town.

We’re really excited about all of these changes and we hope you are too! If you haven’t already, head over to the App Store now and get the new Flickr app for iPhone and iPod touch. As always, we’d love to hear what you think. Please join our official Flickr iPhone App Group to see photos from other people using the app and to give us your feedback. Also, be sure to check out our other releases today and to read through some of the tech details of mobile notifications in our engineering blog if that’s your thing.
