Flickr 3.0 for iOS

Flickr for iOS 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 to modern design standards on iOS 7. It also just looks plain better than the old version, even though it wasn't an ugly app before by any means. The app has also improved its suite of editing tools that were previously updated back in August.

The capture interface has been radically simplified, with a full-screen viewfinder and buttons to simply switch cameras, 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.

Just like before, every Flickr user has access to 1TB of storage for photos, whether they're uploaded from the phone or not — giving you an extra reason to give the app a good look after this update. Flickr 3.0 is now available in the App Store for both iPhone and iPad, but requires iOS 7. If you're a Flickr user, check it out and let us know what you think.
