Yahoo yesterday issued a major revamp of its Mail service across the web and mobile platforms and today the Internet company pushed a new version of Flickr for iPhone.
In addition to a slightly refined user interface for iOS 7, folks who’ve upgrade their iDevices to iOS 7 can take advantage of a new Auto Upload feature that will “seamlessly upload and save your photos in full resolution.” Other tidbits include fixes for Google sign-in issues and a brand new Auto Straighten feature… Read More

There has never been a better time to dive deep into iPhone photography. With Twitter’s Vine popularizing impulse sharing of short video clips, Instagram ruling the photo sharing space and having acquired the video startup Luma, it may seem as if the outcome of this rivalry will be determined between Facebook/Instagram, Twitter/Vine and Google and its Google+ Photos.
But people seem to be forgetting about Yahoo and its Flickr photo sharing service. After being neglected for so many years, the awoken Internet giant under Marissa Mayer’s leadership has made some notable strides in the mobile photography space.
And with today’s major update, Yahoo’s Flickr iOS app has gained some interesting mobile photography features that instantly make it on par with the aforementioned giants. Here’s the full breakdown… Read More

I have a friend who recently nearly lost all of his photos of his daughter. He had his iPhone for just about two years. He took tons of pictures of her. She wasn’t even two years old yet, so basically her whole life was on his iPhone. One day, his phone crashed and he couldn’t figure out what happened to it. His pictures were lost.
He was eventually able to recover his photos, but not without hours of work and days of anxiety. When I asked him why he didn’t just back his photos up, he had no good response. Always back up your photos. Seriously. Always back up your photos. We’ve got a tutorial on a few different ways you can back up your photos so you’ll never have to face the dreaded lost memories again… Read More

Throwing its proverbial credibility behind a recent rumor of iOS 7 having native Flickr and Vimeo integration, the credulous Wall Street Journal has just published a write-up which asserts that Apple’s upcoming iOS revision will feature photo-sharing enhancements alongside new look. iOS 7 will include “new ways to share photos and videos” with other users, people who are reportedly involved in its development said… Read More

After a long time, I recently fell in love with Yahoo’s Flickr service, all over again. I mean, not everyone is on Facebook. More importantly, Instagram leaves a lot to be desired in terms of screen resolution so Flickr, which stores original-res photos, is becoming increasingly relevant to my iPhoneography workflow. The freshly updated software now supports @username tagging (with tags linked to users’ photo stream) and can notify you via push alerts when someone tags you in their comment.
And if you happen to find the volume shutter feature of the stock iOS Camera app useful, you’re going to love this update as it lets you snap a photo using your iPhone’s volume up button. The program also includes a few other improvements, mentioned right below… Read More

Yahoo really seized an opportunity by giving its Flickr iOS app a much-needed love in last week’s major version 2.0 update, didn’t it? I mean, the app couldn’t have arrived at a better time just as Facebook has suffered a major PR blow due to the public outcry concerning Instagram’s new terms of service. Seven days later, Yahoo brings us a new Flickr update. Based on customer feedback, Flickr version 2.01.772 is now available for download, sporting several interesting new features missing in the previous release… Read More
