Nine months ago, we released Indicommons for iPhone® and iPod touch® as a great way to keep up with the Commons wherever you were — allowing you to browse through the various Commons collections or to search within the Commons for something specific. We’re pleased to announce today a major upgrade to the Indicommons app to provide full iPad support. With its 9.7-inch screen, the iPad is a truly superb way to look through the Commons.
With the app, you can not only read the latest blog entries from us here at Indicommons, but you can also directly access the wealth of photos held within the Commons — right from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Whether you just want to casually browse through the various photo sets belonging to each member institution or search for photos across the whole of the Flickr Commons, the Indicommons app makes it easy for you to find whatever you are looking for.
If you have a Flickr account, you can add tags and comments to Commons photos directly from the app, and if you find a photo that you particularly like, you can quickly and easily add it to your favourites on Flickr. New in this version of the app is the ability to build up Flickr Galleries containing your favourite Commons photos, allowing you to share your own view of the best of the Commons.
Indicommons for iPad and iPhone is a free download and is available on the App Store℠ (show in iTunes®). The app requires an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch running OS 3.1.3 or later and an internet connection.
If you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, download the Indicommons app today and give it a whirl! And if you have any feedback on the app, please do let us know what you think, here or in the Flickr Commons group.
