TechBits: Frustrated with Instagram? Try out Flickr’s new app

Fed up with Instagram?
Give Flickr a chance.

Yahoo has taken a leaf out of Instagram’s book with its new Flickr app, which lets users display and share pictures and take interesting snaps as well. The app comes with filter settings that let people apply different effects to their phone snaps to make them appear aged or otherwise altered. The app also presents photos from the site in a clean, intuitive way. Free, for iOS, Windows Phone 7 and Android devices.
