Flicker for Android and iOS receives major redesign

Flickr for Android and iOSYahoo continues to make its presence felt in the mobile space and makes sure that its mobile apps stay current and up to date. One of their services, Flickr is popular among professional photographers, and Yahoo has been pushing to make the service popular with casual Instragram photographers as well. In light of this, Flickr for iOS and Flicker for Android have been updated to version 3.0, bringing a major redesign to the product among other features and improvements.

You can download the update directly on your iOS or Android device through its respective app stores. You can also download the update and find out whats new after the break.

The update aims to make it easier between capturing, editing and sharing an image. This is partially done by allowing you to edit your pictures in real-time with full control with filters, vignettes, auto-enhance, and more professional options like color balance, levels, and exposure.

The update also brings the ability to capture short videos with Flickr. Vine gives you 6 seconds, Instagram gives you 15, and Flickr now offers 30 second HD video capture complete with filters that can be applied after you're done shooting. There are even editing features so you can remove segments from your recording.

Unfortunately, there is a distinct difference in these features between iOS and Android. On iOS, you can apply filters to the live preview before you actually take a picture or record video. On Android, you can only apply filters to photos after you've taken them, and there are no filter options for video.

The last feature addition does exist on both iOS and Android, and that is auto-syncing. This is the same as the auto-upload feature that you'll find in apps like Facebook, Google+, and Dropbox, but the big difference is that Flickr gives you 1TB of cloud storage for free, which is exponentially more than any other photo service that handles HD media.
