Glimmr Puts a New Spin on Mobile Flickr Access
Back when sharing pictures on the Internet was new, and online portfolio storage was beginning to emerge, Flickr made a splash as being a simple and cost-effective way to share your images online. A few years later, and dozens of similar sites later, Flickr no longer has such a large chunk of the online photo sharing market, and unfortunately their Android app leaves a lot to the imagination. That said, many photographers still find themselves at home on the service, so improving the Android app experience is of importance.
Thanks to XDA Senior Member brk3, a new app has entered, trying and bring back Flickr’s luster. The app is called “Glimmer” and he’s calling it “The Unofficial App for Flickr.” It brings with it the following features:
* Swipe through you and your contacts photos with ease.
* Group support.
* Comment on photos and view detailed exif info.
* Notifications for when your contacts post new photos.
* No Ads.
* Lots more to come.
Glimmr is in its first release, so head over to the application thread and give him your feedback.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
