Flickr announces auto upload feature for iOS 7 app

6
When you choose to automatically upload photos, they remain private until you decide to share them.
In addition to auto uploading, you can now automatically straighten your photos within the Flickr app.

Good news for iPhone photographers. Flickr has released an update to its iOS application that allows users to automatically upload their photos to Flickr's free terabyte of cloud storage. In addition to the automatic uploading feature, users now have access to an easy auto-straightening tool.

This latest update is yet another example of Flickr's commitment to mobile photography. The photo sharing social network has been around since before the iPhone existed, but in recent months it has improved its mobile apps to lure users away from newer services.

From Flickr's Blog:

Auto Upload for iOS 7

Up until now, you’ve had to upload photos from your iPhone manually. That can be a really painful and time-consuming process. We’re introducing Auto Upload for iOS 7 users to automatically save your photos to Flickr, securely and privately, until you’re ready to to edit and share them. With Auto Upload, you can always find your smartphone photos wherever you want – within the Flickr app and on Flickr.com.

Auto-straightening

Our last update included customizable filters and editing tools, and we’re adding a powerful new addition: auto-straightening. Have you ever framed up the perfect photo but got bumped as you took the shot? It can be pretty frustrating. With the tap of a button, the Flickr app will instantly straighten your picture. It’s a tool that works like magic when your photo is just a little bit off.

Currently, these features are only available for iOS 7 users, but if history repeats itself, Flickr will likely update its app on other platforms to include auto straightening and auto uploading as well.

Ok and if you find a real journalist can you ask him to compare with the same feature already available on Android ?

This iPad app needs to happen asap. Any other updates to the existing versions can wait.
Same with Instagram.

Auto upload is not on by default. Once turned on, your images are private on your Flickr stream until you decide to share them.
