Snap and save: Flickr for iOS gains auto-upload feature

Flickr(s yhoo) for iOS(s aapl) just got a little more useful for those that like simplicity: The app gained automatic uploads in a software update on Wednesday. With the new feature, full resolution photos are sent to a user’s Flickr account in the cloud, negating the need to manually upload images.

Like the comparable Google+(s goog) auto-upload functionality, Flickr will mark all of the uploaded images as private. That allows time for editing or choosing photos to share. Also included in this release is an auto-straighten feature to adjust picture alignment.
