500px, the iOS photo-sharing app that has over 100 million registered users, has given its large army of fans a treat with a new design and some fresh features.
Following the growing number of developers that have introduced new versions of apps to fit in with the theme of the iOS 7, 500px Inc. has totally modernized the look of its app. Download version 2.2 of the app and you will instantly noticed that perhaps the ugliest part of the interface has gone – the black bezel having been replaced a stylish new edge-to-edge with semi-transparent panels. 500px says that this has been done so that users can fill their screens with amazing pictures, and it has to be said that it looks excellent.
The redesign is the biggest of the changes here, and is probably worth updating on its own. However, 500px has bundled in several new features to please iPad users in particular. The first of the new additions to the line-up is the ability to swipe any comment to reveal Like and Reply options.
“Like a comment to promote it to the Top Comments section; reply to a comment to keep the discussion alive,” said 500px in the update changelog.
That feature is for all iOS users. The next two, though, are for iPad only. First of all a photo’s detail drawer now shows a list of people that have liked it and added it to their favorites. Secondly, the homepage, or ‘Flow’, allows users to get personal with friends by display their avatar alongside their likes, favorites, and comments.
The changes are not yet available for Android, but Google users should not have to wait too long. For Apple owners, though, 500px version 2.2 is available to download now from the App Store.
