Flickr on the go

Flickr for Android lets users of the popular Yahoo-owned photo site connect with the Flickr community and upload photos while on the go.

Flickr for Android lets users of the popular Yahoo-owned photo site connect with the Flickr community and upload photos while on the go. It's dead simple, looks great, and is a nifty tool for storing select mobile photos in the cloud.

In order to get started, you must have a Yahoo account set up. This holds true, even if you decide to log in using your Facebook account. Once you're set up with Yahoo, you get free access to Flickr, and are allowed to upload up to 300 MB of photos per month. If you need more than that, then you'll have to sign up for a Premium Flickr account, which, of course, will cost you.

The main dashboard of the Flickr app opens directly to your activity feed, which lets you know if anyone has favorited or commented on any of your photos. From there, the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen lets you easily access your contacts, your own profile, and the built-in Flickr Camera.

If you're looking for a powerful photo manipulation tool, then Flickr probably isn't it. It offers a few filters, the ability to caption items, and that's about it. What Flickr is good at, though, is sharing. It can share natively to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or e-mail. And, of course, it's connected with the very active Flickr community. That said, if you're looking for a tool to share your mobile photos, and back them up to your Yahoo account in the cloud, you should definitely take a look at Flickr for Android.
