Flickr brings all the functionality of the popular photo sharing site to your mobile device, so you can upload photos as soon as you take them. You can also follow other users, and browse recommended photos by scrolling through your feed. And you can share any photos you like straight to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and more from the app.


Album creation: Organizing photos into albums is a convenient and efficient process when you use this app. Just select the photos that you want in the album, name your new album, and you're done. And adding more photos to an existing album is just as straightforward, so you can be sure all of your photos will always be in the right place.

Find friends: If you allow access to your Facebook friends list, Twitter connections, and phone contacts, the app will locate any of the people included in any of those lists who have Flickr accounts, so you can find and follow them quickly. You can choose to Follow All, or make your selections individually.


Double uploads: Several of the photos we added during testing inexplicably were added two or even three times to the photo archive in the app. While this isn't a huge drawback, uploading photos does take some time, and uploading doubles only adds to that.

Bottom Line

Flickr is a great way to share your photos with anyone who wants to see or with only the people you choose. You can decide which of your photos are public and which have restricted access, and you'll always find great things to look at in your newsfeed. While this app isn't perfect, it free, and it's a great way to bring the flexibility of Flickr to your mobile device.
