This is a pleasant surprise for us Windows Phone 7 users. Flickr has announced an upcoming app for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 that easily puts the iPhone version and the non-existent iPad version to shame. It makes great use of panoramic UI, home screen tiles and the interactive UX of Windows Phone 7 which just can’t be matched by any other platform out there at the moment. We just hope the performance is on par with the native apps in Windows Phone 7.
- 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
While we’re not sure which Windows 7 Tablet this app is targeted towards but a few of them including convertible tablets have been announced at CES this year. With such an immersive and beautiful UI, I might try this on my trusty old HP TX2 tablet too!
