The iPhone's integrated camera coupled with web access from just about anywhere in the world means that it is an ideal device for taking photographs of your trips and travels before sharing them online. Flickr has quickly become one of the most popular photo sharing web sites, so making use of the service from your iPhone seems to make sense.
The Flickr iOS app makes it easy to upload photos directly to your Flickr account, adding tags, titles to make them easier to find. Image resizing is also available as is geotagging, and it is also possible to opt to upload images to particular photosets and take control of their visibility to other Flickr users.
As you would expect, you can also view the photostreams of your contacts and you can add comments to any images that pique your interest. In a couple of screen presses you can also add photos to you list of favourites, add comments to images you view and download or send images via email. Working with a smaller screen undoubtedly means that compromises have to be made, but this app successfully re-creates the Flickr experience on your mobile device.
