This week’s app has been in the news quite a bit recently and for good reason. Yahoo just bought Tumblr for 1.1 million dollars which caused people to reminisce about Flickr which is a photo sharing app also owned by Yahoo. Many thought Yahoo had killed the photo sharing app until recently when Yahoo just a couple days ago completely redid the apps entire look, in a good way. The app is now much more focused on the photos people take, making the photos big and really emphasizing the great work that people do. Sure the app might not be as soocial now but it looks great and is a pleasure to use, as soon as you launch the app you a presented with a beautiful page of photos that people have taken from around the world and it looks great.

So why did Flickr make the cut this week? Like I was saying above, the new focus on images instead of so much on social makes the app look great and feel great, something that was long overdue. The app also has a great search feature that lets you search Flickr’s vast storage of images for just what your looking for. On top of that if you see an image you like and it’s not protected by the photographer that took said image than you can save it onto your phone to set as a background or you can click a share button and share it with your friends directly from the image.

Overall the app feels very refined now and just looks amazing making you want to use it more and more just to see what new pictures you can find to fall in love with and trust me you won’t run out of pictures to browse in your lifetime.
