    Yahoo's image and video hosting website Flickr has released a major update to its iOS app, adding a number of features that will allow it to compete with the likes of Facebook's Instagram and Google's Snapseed.

    The update, which is live in the App Store now, introduces a "completely new photo taking experience" with live filters and editing.

    Unlike Instagram, which features fixed filters, Flickr allows users to tweak individual aspects, such as the contrast or brightness, in order to get the image they desire. The update also removes the paywall for Flickr's professional editing tools, so photos can be enhanced, cropped and sharpened for free. The interface has also received a slight revamp, with new transitions present across the entire app.

    In May, the web version of Flickr received a major revamp and users were given 1 TB of storage space as standard. The new Flickr app is free from the [Direct Link], but the Android version has yet to receive an update.

    (Thanks, Arthur!)

    And still inexplicably unavailable in the Japanese App Store. Unfortunate.

    The update's not major enough. Still no iPad support. Pass...
    I'll stick with FlickStackr.

    I'd like to see either Yahoo or Apple come up with a way to upload all of my photos from iPhoto to my Flickr account while maintaining the folders I have.

    Nice update for Flickr, but I really only use the app to follow and comment on my contacts images. Other than that, I don't really use the app to it's full potential since I do not upload any of my iPhone images to my photostream.
