As we reported a few months ago, professional photographers have been leaving Flickr in droves to join 500px before it had a mobile app, and this new version of its iPad app should boost its popularity even further.
The iPad has definitely become users first choice for browsing photos from 500px. According to the photo upstart, users from the United States flip through more than 100 photos per visit, spending more than 40 minutes in the app daily. And 500px for iPad has been #1 free photo app for iPad in all Apple app stores, hitting more than 100,000 downloads in the first week of release.
In today's release 500px has added the ability to view photographer profiles, browse their photos, friends' photos, and favorites, and follow your favorite photographers.
As with previous releases, you can view any photos by category by tapping and holding streams icons, search photos by keywords, vote and add to favourites , see comments and EXIF data, login and sign up from the app, and even create a slideshow with a music from your library from any photo stream to create an inspiring photo frame.
