Flickr releases official Android app with easy editing, slideshows and sharing

It’s fair to say that they haven’t exactly been busting a gut to get this thing out, but the folks at Flickr have finally released an official app for the Android platform – and thankfully, it looks like it was worth the wait.

Sit back and enjoy the show

The free app lets signed-in users view and add comments to their photos, view EXIF info and share their snaps via Facebook or email – or just sit back and enjoy a photo slideshow in fullscreen

It’s also possible to view the collections of contacts or have a rummage through any of the public photos posted up by the Flickr community.

Take a photo

The Flickr app lets users take new photos from within the interface (sadly employing the same daft aperture animation as seen in the iPhone), select an aspect ratio, and then apply up to ten built-in effects and include a title, description, comment and tags.

There’s also support for geotagging, and your snaps can be shared and uploaded directly to your Flickr account.

Although there’s a few things we’d like to see included (pinch to zoom and sets support for starters), we’re pretty impressed for a v1 release and can definitely recommend it if you’re a Flickr user.
