Flickr for Android

Flickr for Android just got a complete overhaul, bumping the app to version 3.0 and bringing a host of new and welcome features. First thing you'll notice upon opening the new Flickr is the completely redesigned interface, bringing it up to modern Android standards. It also just looks plain better than the old version (and possibly better than the iOS version). The app has also gained a suite of editing tools that let you tweak and refine your photos.

The capture interface has been radically simplified, with a full-screen viewfinder and buttons to simply switch cameras, toggle between photo and video capture, toggle the flash, go to the last photo, and to take a photo or record a video (that being the biggest an most prominent of buttons).

The editing tools include contrast, brightness, saturation, exposure, white balance, and rotation. There's also an array of filters that can be applied. Both the editing tools and filters are accessed via a button on either side and are arranged in a neat little carousel that pops out of the way when you don't need it anymore.

It was a little over a year ago that Flickr for Android saw its last major update, which along with it came a whopping 1TB of storage. The app supports automatic uploads of your photos from your phone to that terabyte of storage, should you so desire.

Flickr 3.0 is available now in the Google Play Store for all comers. If you're a Flickr user, check it out and let us know what you think.
