Introducing Flickr for iOS 9 with Extended 3D Touch and Spotlight Search Features

Flickr for iOS 9 is here! And we have some cool new features to help you get the most out of the latest Apple software and devices.

Flickr iOS 9 Extended 3D Touch

3D Touch

On the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, we’ve added 3D Touch support, enabling you to preview photos, people, notifications and more with a light press of your screen.

In your Flickr Camera Roll, we’ve developed a new 3D Touch gesture to help you find your best shot. Lightly press a photo to see a preview, then move your finger left/right to page through neighboring photos. Once you’ve found your favorite, press harder to Pop full-screen.

Flickr iOS 9 Quick Actions

Quick Actions

New in iOS 9, 3D Touch “Quick Actions” let you do the things you do most often, faster and in fewer steps. Lightly press our app icon to upload a photo, skip directly to notifications or the feed or to kick off a search right from your homescreen.

Spotlight Search

Using Spotlight search in iOS 9, search for albums, groups or recently-viewed photos without even opening the Flickr app.

Flickr iOS 9 universal links

Universal Links

With universal link support, links you send or receive will now open directly in the Flickr app, instead of as a web page in Safari. So the next time you share photos from a night out, last weekend or a recent trip, the recipient can view your photos in a beautiful, interactive and native experience.
