London, United Kingdom, January 06, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Indie developer Breaking Art's app "flickr hd" has won the coveted TUAW Best of 2011 award for iPad photography apps. Chosen by app users themselves, flickr hd beat Apple's iPad app of the year, the photography app Snapseed.
flickr hd's success can be attributed to the fact that it was designed from the ground up for displaying photos on the high resolution display of the iPad and the retina displays of the iPhone and iPod Touch. It doesn't attempt to provide the flickr website functionality in an app; it bucks the current trend for post processing photo apps; instead flickr hd concentrates on one thing only - making the photos that are important to users look good. flickr hd can even connect to an HD TV from an iPad, including the iPad 1, using Apple's TV out cables (sold separately) - ideal for family gatherings.
With its search based interface, flickr hd frees users from the constraints of flickr sets and collections. If a user searches their photostream for their daughter's name, flickr hd will show a slideshow of all the photo's they've tagged with her name, no matter which set or collection they appear in. Users can also search the wealth of photos on flickr itself.
flickr hd was also designed from the ground up for sharing with users without flickr accounts. If a user gifts the app (a feature of AppStore) to, for example, a grandparent and tell them their flickr screen name, and they will be able to download the app free, enter the screen name, and immediately see the use latest flickr photos - no passwords required; no registration; and no navigating through websites. And since they are seeing public photos, they are only seeing what the users wants them to see. Simple, safe, secure, and from then on, one click access to the photos.
flickr hd is available now for 99 cents (69p), a $4 discount on the full price of $4.99.
