Widely used online photo management and photo-sharing service, Flickr,  has introduced two new product features for its users. The first – an Android app, simply called Flickr Android App is as the name suggests, Flickr's foray into the Android arena. Flickr users, who're also Android users can now use Flickr's new native app for the platform. The app, Flickr claims will simply bring the web functionality onto the Android platform, thereby allowing users to not only capture high resolution images, but also share them.

With the Flickr app on their Android-based device, users will be able to capture images directly from the app, using its 'Shoot and Share' feature.  The app also features 10 high-quality filters, adds Flickr, thereby allowing users do more with their images. Social networking too is a part of the entire package. Users will be able to share their images and artistic creations across all social networks, and also keep a conversation going. Also, Flickr assures that no matter how many photos or albums a user creates and maintains in his or her id, it would be easy to access all of them using a simple swipe gesture across the screen. Lastly, the app users will also have access to adequate privacy settings, which Flickr adds will let them decide who they want to view their photos, and/or download them.

The Photo Session feature, also newly introduced allows users to share their photostreams, thereby allowing them to not only browse through the images, but also interact with their groups of friends, or family in real-time, either using their computer, iPhone or iPad. To begin a Photo Session, users have to send a link to their contacts, who can access the photostreams by following the link. At any given time, Flickr adds, users can share their photos with no more than 10 contacts. While doing so, they can also engage in a conversation with each other, as well as make notes on the images.
