Yahoo finally supports the Retina display of the iPad with its latest update to the Flickr iOS app.

Flickr for iPad is optimised for the full screen of the iPad and the app can now display images in high resolution on the device.

Filters and the ability to capture photos and videos directly using an iPad has also been added, perhaps thanks to the fact that the new iPad Air 2 now features an improved 8-megapixel iSight camera, which is more suited to taking stunning pics than before.

Flickr users can browse their photo feeds in landscape or portrait on the larger devices, with layouts optimised. And that can amount to a lot of snaps considering Yahoo gives each Flickr member 1TB of free storage for photos and videos.

As before, users can also browse photos from other members from around the world and share their own. But a new search functionality makes the process of finding pictures you like that much more simple.

The Flickr for iPad enhancements are part of the 3.2 update to the app, so you may already have it on your device. It is iOS 8-specific, so you will need at least iOS 8.0 for it to carry the new features.

It's available as a free download from the iTunes App Store now.
