ISO500 — A Lovely 500px App for Your iPhone

ISO500 — A Lovely 500px App for Your iPhone

Yahoo! has been treating Flickr and its users relatively badly from what I see online. Flickr Pro users in particular have been unhappy with their decisions lately. 500px on the other hand has been growing worldwide with more and more great photographs being shared. 500px already has a great official app but ISO500 by Pulpfingers is awesome enough to be featured here.

On launching the app, you get an absolutely stunning welcome page with options to sign in with your 500px account, create a new one or continue without logging in. The main interface brings the pictures to the forefront with very little interference from UI elements. The tabs on the top allow you navigate between the Popular, Editor’s Choice, Upcoming and Fresh sections. The presence of a refresh button with no pull to refresh was surprising. The bottom of the screen has a small circular button that opens the main menu. The main menu appears out of the circular button with a great animation revealing the upload, profile, popular, community, search and settings buttons. The main menu button is visible on all views but the photo detail view. Tapping on any photo brings it in focus with nothing around it. You can tap anywhere to reveal the information about it and view the comments or share the image. Detailed information can be seen by tapping the button on the bottom right of the photo page. The details are presented with crisp typography and a map of the location below the information section. The app has an in app purchase costing $2 that allows you to save photos to your camera roll and send them to Instagram.
