Flickr finally launches an iPad app

Flickr has finally provided an iPad version of its popular photo-sharing app.

The first iPad was launched in April 2010, but it’s taken Flickr and owner Yahoo until now to release an iPad-specific version of its app.

Flickr announced the availability of its new iPad app on a blog post a few days ago. “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, organise and share your stunning photos from anywhere,” it reads.

As you might expect, the iPad version of Flickr makes full use of the extra pixels on offer, displaying uploaded images in high resolution “by pushing up to 3,000,000 pixels per photo.”

It also adopts a sharp grid-based format that’s both in keeping with Flickr’s recent(ish) revamp and Apple’s own funkily flat iOS 8. There’s a helpful yet unobtrusive command bar along the left hand edge offering access to all of the relevant areas, such as direct access to the camera. Flickr has also included live filters for such direct tablet snaps.

Flickr for iPad’s release is well timed (in a sense) to accompany the release later this week of the iPad Air 2. During Apple’s announcement of its latest tablet, the company drew particular attention to the Air 2’s photographic chops.

The Air 2’s 8-megapixel camera should be capable of taking some accomplished snaps, given enough light, and Flickr’s dedicated photography community and slick instant-upload tools should marry well with these increased abilities.

You can download Flickr for iPad from the App Store now, and it won’t cost you a penny.
