Today 500px launches the official Android app
for tablets and phones.
The Android app has been in the works for the last few months, and we are now happy to announce that it's here — and available immediately on Google Play, and is coming shortly to Kindle App Store and GetJar App Store.
The app takes cues from our iPad app, which has been praised by its minimalistic and beautiful interface and focus on large, beautiful photos. Now, everyone can enjoy large and beautiful photos on their Android devices.
The app is compatible with both tablets and phones and works with Android OS 2.2 and later. It brings initial iPad functionality:
• Browse Popular, Editors' Choice, Upcoming and Fresh. Photos change in real-time, so come back often for a fresh dose of inspiration
• Filter by categories (tap and hold the icons on the left)
• Full search
• View beautiful, full size photos without distractions
• Login or sign up for a 500px account to see your photos, friends' photos and your favorites
• Vote for photos, add to favorites, read and post comments
• View photo descriptions, EXIF information and location
• Share photos on Twitter, Facebook or see them in browser
• View a slideshow of every photo stream
You can create an account from within the app or login to your existing one. If you log in with Facebook, simply visit your Settings and set a password, and you will be able to login with your username and password.
The app is free, and available immediately on Google Play
