While have been 3rd party Flickr apps on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace for a couple of months now, the official Flickr app is now available. So question is, was it worth the wait ?
The Flickr app is indeed a very polished experience, taking full advantage of the panorama UI available on WP7. Giving you access to all the standard web-based features your know and love. Sets, galleries, photos from your contacts, your own photostream and of course search across the entire Flickr catalogue. Naturally there’s the ability to upload photos from your WP7, complete with GPS location information.
Apparently the application does indeed feature a LiveTile, but takes some time to pull this down from Flickr, be patient.
The app is one of the best on WP7 and yeah, really was worth the wait, I hope the 3rd party Flickr apps enjoyed their time to shine, because today it ends. iPhone owners should note, that while the WP7 is pretty amazing, functionality wise, there’s really not anything your missing out on.
Flickr for Windows Phone 7 is free and available now on the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.
