The Good Flickr for iOS gives you a way to interact with Yahoo's popular photo site while on the go. New filters give you more options for spicing up your images.

The Bad You can't edit personal info. You can only create photo sets while uploading so you can't organize photos already on Flickr. The app is sometimes slow to load.

The Bottom Line If you like browsing through an enormous amount of images or want a way to share your photography skills, the Flickr app for iOS offers better browsing and new filters to make your photos pop.

Flickr for iOS recently received a redesigned user interface and a few nifty features, including a handful of filters for your images along with the ability to explore photos taken by other Flickr users. But a new update to the app adds several smaller features Flickr users have been clamoring for.

Flickr for iPhone lets users of the popular Yahoo-owned photo site connect with the Flickr community and upload photos while on the go. It's easy to use, the redesign looks great, and it's a great tool for showing off and sharing your best photos online.

To get started, you'll need to set up an account, or you can create a new one from within the app using your Facebook or Google+ credentials. Once you're all set up, you'll get free access to Flickr, which comes with the ability to upload up to 300MB of photos per month. If you need more than that, then you'll have to sign up for a Premium Flickr account, which, of course, will cost you.
