Along with the much bigger announcement of Yahoo acquiring microblogging site Tumblr there was another announcement in that Flickr is getting a complete redesign. This includes both the full site and the Android application.
The new and Android app for smartphones and tablets is similar to the iOS app that was redesigned late last year. Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer wrote on her Tumblr account after the event in New York yesterday “The new Flickr for Android maintains your photos’ original quality, so every image you take, edit, share, or view on your phone or tablet looks spectacular,”.
So now Android users can get the same high resolution, grid-style layout that both the new designed website and iOS app.
You can download the new Flickr app from the Google Play Store, or update your existing Flickr app.
