Official 500px for Windows Phone app arrives for photo buffs

500px screens

The holiday season is in full effect, and if you’re a photo buff we have a present for you today. 500px, the popular photo sharing service, has finally released their official Windows Phone app. With so many great cameras on Windows Phone devices this has become one of the most highly requested app over the past year.

It appears the long wait was worth it. This is a gorgeous app. 500px did a bang-up job on the design of this app. It’s no slouch when it comes to features, either. You can explore the full catalog of user images, browse the Flow feed, and all the categories like Editor’s Choice and Fresh. Since this is such a photo-driven app people will naturally use it for their lockscreen, and you can indeed do that. The live tile also shows new photos.

The only downside to this app is a big one. For some reason you can’t actually upload images to your account from the app. This is obviously a big bummer, especially for those of us with really nice PureView cameras. Hopefully they add this feature soon. Download 500px below for free.
