Yahoo renews Flickr for iPhone
Yahoo today unveiled a revamped version of Flickr for iPhone , in an attempt to regain ground in the world of photography, now conquered by Instagram, Twitter, Google and Facebook. The new application allows you to add Filters and share Photos on social networks.
This is an important update for this photo service, which had remained unchanged in the mobile world in more than two years. After this update, there will be one for Android, said. Work on Flickr has accelerated now that Marissa Mayer has served as CEO, trying to change the direction of the company.
The new application also allows you to browse the most popular photos on Flickr and subscribe to see updates from friends. The competition will not be easy, now that Twitter can also put filters to photos .
Yahoo bought Flickr in 2005, but failed to maintain the popularity it had the service platforms such as Facebook became popular as the place to share your photos online. Even so, it still has 85 million users, which is not negligible. Will Mayer rekindle to Flickr?
