Yesterday I wrote a brief post about how the mobile camera app market was in the middle of a shakeup .Well, the one name that completely slipped my mind was Flickr and guess what? today Flickr launch a completely revamped version of their offering. The camera and editing end of the app is a more or less direct rip off of Instagram’s current offering, in other words a simple editor aimed at the casual user.
This does put Flickr into the top division now by giving users the power to snap a photo, edit it and publish it to Flickr’s own pages directly from the smartphone. Currently only Google (Google + and Snapseed) and Facebook (Facebook and Instagram) offer this one stop shop approach.
The picture above was edited using one of Flickrs new filters. The quality of the filters is pretty good it has to be said.
