Flickr for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 announced


Flickr has just announced the Flickr for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 applications today. Both apps are fully touch enabled and give you the ability to browse, navigate and manage your Flickr photos collections on your Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 slate device:

Introducing Flickr for Windows 7 and 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

Check out the video after the break:

The Flickr Applications for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 will feature embedded connected-device synchronization for sharing content between the two device types – built by leveraging RSS feeds as well as the Windows Azure platform. The state of the application will be stored in the cloud, facilitating a seamless consumer experience across Windows Phone 7 and Slate devices. Regardless of the device the consumer is using to access Flickr content, the consumer will see the same context, the same photo and same state of the application.

Both applications aren’t available yet but are scheduled to launch on January 31.

    Interesting. So even if Windows 7 isn’t tuned for Slates and Tablets, the applications can be optimized for touch. I think Windows 7 should be immediate upgraded by MS for a touch overlay. 2 or 3 years out for Win8 is much too late.

    I dont think Windows 7 needs a touch overlay, most of Windows 7 can already be manually customised for touch. All it needs is good hardware powerful enough to handle the OS smoothly and more apps like this.

    I hope the app runs just as smoothly on the phone as it is shown in this video. If so, it will be one of, if not the best graphically designed apps available for WP7 (all platforms?).
