While Flickr features a slick and highly functional mobile interface, it can't replace a native Android client. Especially a client like Flickr Free which boasts a few clever features that make this nifty app a must-have tool for all shutterbugs.

As you would expect, Flickr Free allows you to access and browse your photostream, sets, collections, and favorites. You can also view individual photos and perform different actions on them. To do this, long-tap on the currently viewed photos to evoke the context menu. You can then use the available commands to add the photo to favorites, download it to your device, view detailed information about the photo as well as add comments and tags. Using Flickr Free's search feature, you can search public photo groups, users, and tags. Flickr Free also integrates with the system and allows you to upload photos from your device to Flickr. Open the photo you want for viewing, press Menu and tap the Share button. Select the Flickr Free item, fill out the required fields, specify the available options, and hit Upload. Flickr Free can handle multiple accounts, too. So it can come in rather handy when you need to manage several Flickr identities from your Android device. All in all, Flickr Free is a nice little app which makes a great addition to your photographic toolbox.
