The official Android app for Yahoo!’s popular photo service Flickr is now ready for download free from the Android Market.

The Flickr app for Android, however, is initially available to only a limited number of countries worldwide and works only for devices with Android 2.1 Eclair upwards.

Yahoo! has yet to confirm whether it will be releasing a Flickr app optimized for Android 3.x Honeycomb tablets.

Since the Flickr app is relatively new to the Android environment, we could not expect the first versions to work perfectly on some Android devices.

But, if it does, you are one of the fortunate few to enjoy this great app.

The Flickr app allows Android users to use their Android devices to quickly and easily share photos with their families and friends.



The app allows access to photos, albums, and contacts on your Flickr account right on your Android device.

The app post updates of pictures uploaded by your friends with its updated activity stream, and allows you to choose who can see your picture with its easy privacy settings.


Through its geotagging features, the Flickr app for Android also automatically keeps track of and posts the location where pictures are taken.


Flickr’s in-app camera and custom filters allow you take high-resolution pictures directly from the app and instantly share those pictures to other social network sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.

Have you been waiting for this app? Why or why not?
