Flickr 2.1 for iPhone Adds Great New Features

Flickr 2 Updated

The folks at Flickr are not resting on their recent laurels. They've released Flickr 2.1 for iOS, and it includes a handful of terrific new features, including:

  • Faster uploading
  • Easily save photos from your Photostream to your camera roll
  • Automatically saves your original, pre-filter photos to your camera roll
  • Quickly tag your contacts in photo comments and description by simply typing @screename
  • Get notified when your contacts mention you
  • Higher resolution photo display in lightbox view
  • Take photos in a snap using your iPhone's volume up button

In my testing, images do process faster during uploading. And I love the fact that I can save shots from my Photo Stream to my Camera Roll, especially since I have more than 1,100 images posted on Flickr. I'm also happy to see the Volume Up "+" button making its way back as a shutter button in our photo apps.

If you haven't tried the new Flickr for iOS app, I highly recommend it. You can download it in the iTunes App Store.
