Ya­hoo Inc, An­droid The ser­vice may have been around for a while, but Flickr has been given a bit of a re­boot. The Ya­hoo-owned photo ser­vice has over­hauled its An­droid app as part of a wider up­date, mak­ing it eas­ier to use and a lot cleaner look­ing than its pre­de­ces­sor. It’s been in­flu­enced by the iOS app de­sign, which for users of both sys­tems will prob­a­bly come as a wel­come change. It’s eas­ier to tap favourite pho­tos, for ex­am­ple – maybe a lit­tle too easy at times, so be care­ful. Space has been bumped up to a ter­abyte for free, which means you get about 500,000 pho­tos on to your on­line stor­age. That’s great for users who are run­ning low on phone space but still want their im­ages to be ac­ces­si­ble. There are re­ports of some crash­ing is­sues, but a few days’ us­age here didn’t present any prob­lems ma­jor enough to af­fect us­abil­ity. It still needs a lit­tle work to iron out some bugs, but over­all it’s a good up­date. Less pop­u­lar is Flickr’s changes to its web­site, if the user com­ments are any­thing to go by. Bbut that’s an­other story.
