Just like Marissa Mayer promised, Yahoo has revamped its Flickr app for iOS to bring it back in line with the oh-so-social modern era. Whereas the Android app was updated back in August, the iPhone version has had only minor improvements over the last few years and was starting to look seriously dusty compared to the competition.
In terms of individual features, the new app doesn’t do much that various other third-party apps can’t do already, but it does bunch them all into one polished package that is happy to work across multiple networks.
In addition to Flickr, for instance, you can readily share your snaps with Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. You might also dig the camera app, which separates exposure and focus points to give you more creative control over your images – and yes, there are the obligatory filters too. The app is live on the App Store right now.
If you’ve found that Microsoft’s very own cloud storage solution SkyDrive doesn’t quite cut the mustard for you, worry no more as Dropbox for Windows RT and Windows 8 is already on its way. The Dropbox app for Windows RT and Windows 8 is ready and submitted to Microsoft for approval. Lots of people rely on the Dropbox service instead on the Microsoft’s own SkyDrive and it’s certainly going to boost the productivity of the RT slates.
The Windows 8 users had a Dropbox app since its launch (the Desktop one), but the RT owners had nothing but the web client until now. Well, the Modern app should pop up in the Store any moment now.
Instagram is getting ready to open up its collection of filtered images to the web. The photosharing service announced via blog post that it’s going to be rolling out web profiles over the next few days, bringing profile photos, bios and shared images to easily navigable URLs at instagram.com/[username]. If you have photos set to private, you’ll still get a profile, but those images won’t be shared with the web at large. The site also notes that web uploading isn’t currently enabled, seeing as how it’s always been focused on mobile devices. If you don’t have a page yet, you should be good to go within the week. In the meantime, you can check out other profiles in Instagram at the source link below.
