Yesterday Yahoo! Mail gets an overhaul and now Yahoo has just announced the second upgrade to its photo-sharing app, Flicker for iOS, which brings all new Intragram-inspired features, adds 16 filters to tweak your personal photographs and many more. Check out the details on availability and download links after the jump!
With a new version of its Flickr iOS app, which has been stripped down, completely redesigned and relaunched in a bid to get people back using the photo-sharing service. Yahoo has given the app a fresh and modern look that allows users to immediately log in using their existing Yahoo account, while using their Facebook credentials. Adds simple Sign-ins, with an option to use Google account as well. But this feature is hidden from the front page, reason why? We’re not sure about it!
Finally, the new Yahoo’s Flickr iPhone app has received sixteen new filters together with support Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and email sharing, along with group sharing ability, which up until today were only available through Flickr website.
Yahoo with some tweaking options and new filters also revamped the Profiles section within the Flickr app with sets, Gropus, Favorites, Photos Of and Contacts options, are also added to the Photostream pane for easy access….!
“The all-new Flickr App is a complete redesign of the previous version. It’s now easier to use, more beautiful and includes more of the great features you love using on Flickr.com”
Once logged in, the Flickr app provides tooltips that will help you walk you through its features, showing everything about where options are located and how to use gestures to favorite a photo and on. Particularly, the app takes cues from other image-sharing application – the Instagram – but it also borrows heavily from its Android app. Which Yahoo updated it in August, overhauling its user interface to add a new tabber, new ways to explore, the editing of metadata and a whole host of other new inclusions.
Similar to Instagram, it’s same for the iPhone app, which groups your contacts most recent updates on the main screen, allowing you to favorite them with a simple double-tap. Like Instagram, Flickr offers a tab that groups photos based on favoritism or by location, and similar to Twitter, enables users to add filters to images.
Yahoo with 16 genuine camera filters, provides a quick and an unique way to snap, filter it and share images pretty quickly using Flickr’s own tools. With easy sign-up options, Flickr’s app is well-placed to on-board users quickly, giving them another photo-sharing app to add to their arsenal.
The Yahoo Flicker iOS app is now available for free of charge, can be downloaded from the link provided below.

Will the new app lure people back to Flickr away from the 100 million user strong Instagram?
