Flickr arrives in the Android Market

Yahoo has released the official Flickr app for Android.  This app includes an activity stream for viewing photos like a FB newsfeed, your photo albums or friends’ photo albums and more.

You can also like, comment on the photo, view photo data or even view the location on the map where the photo was taken.  But one of the most important aspects of the Flickr app is photo taking and sharing across social networks – Flickr has also developed a new viewfinder screen and added ten photo filters to beautify your images.
