If you’re passionate about photography chances are you use Flickr, the online photo sharing and storing service. Pixl is one the best, if not the best, Flickr apps available on Windows Phone. It has a beautiful design that is sure to make photography nuts happy, and it has many features to back it up. With the latest update this app has become much more than just a Flickr app.

Version 1.1.0.0 of Pixl adds some photo filters that can be added to photos before you upload them to Flickr. There are 8 filters in total, all named after districts in San Fransisco. if you’re having trouble uploading images to with the app you can use a new setting that will reduce the image size to 1024 pixels for faster uploads. Of course you can also browse your Flickr stream and see your friends photos in the app as well. Pixl is one of the nicest apps we’ve seen. It has a unique look that still fits in with the Windows Phone design language. If you are a Flickr user you will want to grab this app for free in the Store for Windows Phone 7.x and 8 users.

    Never seen Flickr friends actually use these types of filters, but that’s cool! I love Flickr and use it often. I will keep this one bookmarked for when I get a Windows Phone again.
