500px, on Thursday, released an official Android app for the first time. Available as a free download for tablets and smartphones running Android 2.2 and above, the app offers the ability to browse and view the service’s expansive library of user-submitted photographs, complete with EXIF information and location data.
In addition, users can now download HD versions of their favorite photos using the app.
500px is the new cloud photo gallery app that has been on the rise to take on Flickr for dominance in the space. Not only is 500px popular for sharing photos, it’s also become a marketplace for photographers to sell prints of their work, which is something that Flickr never even attempted.
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.
