Unofficial Flickr App Approved for the iPad

An unofficial iPad Flickr app called “Flickr Photos” has been approved for the iPad app store. The $2.99 app, created by Garlic Dumpling, allows you to do download and view both your own photos and your contacts’ photos in a minimalistic interface. There’s no word on whether the official Flickr application will be ready for the iPad when the store launches, but the iTunes preview page for the official Flickr app already states “Flickr for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store”.

The official app has an average rating of only 3.5 stars, so if a third party app can come along and offer a better experience for using Flickr, it might just take off and strike big in this upcoming “gold rush”.

    This is great news as the iPad is surely set to be a great way to show and view photos.

    As a photographer there are quite a few things I'd like to see added to the iPad so for now atleast I'll be holding off; for how long though, who knows…lol

    Thanks for sharing,
