Yahoo has rolled out the latest update for the Flickr app. This update has the app jumping to v3.0, and users will likely notice the redesign. Details coming from Yahoo bring mention of the app having been "completely" rebuilt and redesigned. And for those who may not have used the app in a while, that bit alone may be reason to give it another look.

You'll also be able to capture images, edit images and of course, have those images shared on Flickr. Another highlight here is the auto-backup option. Users will be able to turn Auto Sync on in the settings. You will also be given the option when you first launch the app after updating.

Auto Sync also allows you to choose whether you want to backup over any connection or over WiFi only. And for those worried about roaming charges -- there is also the option to disable uploads when roaming. Again, this is all available in the Settings menu which can be found using the icon in the upper right corner.

Otherwise, the Flickr app has options for search, friends, your account and notifications across the top. Those run from left to right, and looking further to the right is the camera icon, which as one would assume, will let you capture new images. The camera interface is on the basic side, but does have options to switch between the front- and rear-facing camera, as well as turn the flash on and off.
