More and more of us are making use of smartphone apps and so here at Phones Review we like to keep readers informed about the latest ones available. Today we have news that a long-awaited app for the iOS platform is now available, a photography app called 500px and news of its arrival at the App Store should please many people.
500px is a photo-sharing platform that appeals to both professional photographers and those who would like to be. This is the first time that the popular Flow timeline feature has been optimized for mobile devices and the 500px app version 2.0 has been especially designed for the iPhone and iPad. It’s a free app and suitable for iOS devices running iOS 5.0 or later and you can download it from the App Store here. Compatibility for the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 has also been added to this latest version of 500px.
One of the features of this app is that users can browse through community-selected galleries and editors’ picks and comment on the photographs or add them to their favorite lists to view later. When a member of the community comments on your photos you’ll also receive notification. The popular Flow feature, for use with the iPhone only at present, enables users to check on their friends’ activity. Meanwhile for those who are using an iPad, you are able to purchase and download high-resolution digital photos on the 500px Market.
Apart from bringing compatibility to the iPhone 5 and iOS 6, version 2.0 of 500px for iOS has been completely revamped for the iPhone and is also enhanced for the iPad. It also features Avatar upload for profiles so that you can customize how you appear on 500px directly from your device.
