500px Releases First Ever Android App And Major iPad Update All In One Day

It’s been a busy day for photo sharing community 500px. They managed to launch a major update to their iPad app as well as release their first ever Android app. While Instagram is all the rage these days and has amateur mobile photographers giddy inside, 500px is a photo community built around passionate photographers and enthusiasts who discover, publish, share, buy and sell thousands of photographs every day. You won’t be snapping pictures with this app but you have the opportunity to:

  • Browse Popular, Editors Choice, Upcoming and Fresh photos which change and update in real-time
  • Filter by categories
  • Access full search
  • Login or sign up for a free 500px account to see your photos, friends’ photos and your favorites
  • Vote for photos, add to favorites, read and leave comments
  • View photo descriptions, EXIF information, and location
  • Share photos on Twitter and Facebook
  • Create a slideshow for every photo stream

The magazine-like stream looks brilliant on a tablet and really was meant for the larger viewing screens, which brings us to the iPad update 500px also pushed out today. For all you CoM readers wondering why in the world you’re reading this, here’s what’s new in version 1.4 for the iPad:
