It took them quite a while, but Flickr has finally released the standalone iOS application for iPad owners. And the timing couldn't be better - only one day after Apple announced the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3. While it faces a lot of competition from similar services as Instagram, Flickr is still very popular among desktop and mobile users, as well.
Here's what Flickr said on its official blog:
"Today, we’re extremely excited to announce Flickr for iPad. We’ve heard you loud and clear asking for an official app on Apple’s beautiful, large retina display, which makes it easy and enjoyable to access, organize and share your stunning photos from anywhere. The new Flickr for iPad app will be available globally in eleven languages. "
The recently launched app requires iOS 8 to function, of course. iPad users are greeted with wider layouts, both landscape and portrait orientations which allows for more beautiful images. Flickr says that scrolling through photos is displayed in "a lovely waterfall format."
With the new app, when you want to view an image full size, you will get a high-resolution version that can have as many as 3 million pixels. iPad photographers can now capture photos and videos in-app with live filters and many other editing tools.
Flickr members can also change their account's user and background photos and update their profile with a bio and links. Go ahead and follow the link from below to download the app on your iPad.
