I am very pleased to see another large media company deciding to develop apps for Windows Phone 7. When a company like flickr (Yahoo!) decides to support a platform like Windows Phone 7 it will draw others to develop for it as well.
An additional tidbit is that this app is also being developed for Windows 7.
What can you expect from these apps when they come out
Introducing a whole new way to share your life through your photos. Easily browse your world on Flickr in stunning high-resolution display, upload your latest images on the go and stay connected with the people who matter most to you. With Flickr for Windows 7® and Windows Phone 7®, your photos are everywhere you are.
- Browse your Flickr photos in stunning high resolution display and touch navigation controls
- Share photos with friends and family via email, Twitter, Facebook and more
- Upload your latest images on the go with the in-app uploader
- Seamlessly transition from your Windows Phone 7 to Windows 7 tablet and back again, without ever losing your place
The programs are expected to be released on 31 January 2011. Check out http://www.flickr.com/windows7 for a great video review of the applications.
