The free Flickr solution, available for download via Google's Android Market, enables users to snap high-resolution photos with the in-app camera, enhance the image with custom filters and share the end result across Facebook and Twitter.

Users may add titles, descriptions, comments and tags, enable automatic geotagging, and implement privacy settings to limit access exclusively to designated contacts. The app also boasts full-screen browsing and slideshows.

The Flickr community now spans more than 60 million members. New users may sign up within the Android app.
