Flickr wants to become your new Instagram app


Yahoo has been busy updating the Android app for its Flickr service. The new app is now offering improved sharing through Dropbox and Google+ (something which has been seriously lagging with Instagram) but in addition to this, the update now brings Instagram-like filters and in-depth editing tools.

There is also a new feature which enables users to view each photo’s metadata, including which camera an image was shot with, aperture setting and more.

However there is a small downside to the new update. Where previously you could sign into the app through Facebook or Google, this update eliminates those two options. Personally I don’t mind this but I certainly am annoyed its another account I have to remember my details for!

The update is being pushed out to users but if your impatient like me, you can download the Flickr app from the link below.

Do you like the new Flickr Instagram features? Does it bother you you now have to sign up for a Yahoo! account instead of being able to log in with your Google or Facebook accounts? We would like to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
