Pixl Update

Under a month ago we told you guys about Pixl, a beautiful Flickr app for Windows Phone. We praised the good design of the application and it’s easily one of the better ways to interact with Flickr on Windows Phone. They added an update yesterday that adds some fun filters to the images you upload. Check it out.

Updating or download version 1.1.0.0 of Pixl gives you 8 unique filters. The filters each have a name representing a district in the city of San Francisco – where Pixl is from. Original, Haight-Ashbury, Tenderloin, Castro, Hayes Valley, Sunnyside, Nob Hill, Twin Peaks, and Design District are the neighborhoods you can look forward to using. You can upload images you take on your Lumia 920 or 8X to your Flickr account. And if you wanted to stylize the image like in Instagram or Photoplay you can.

Speaking of uploads, there is also an ‘optimized for upload’ feature that will reduce image size to 1024 pixels for faster uploads. It’s an on/off option under the settings page.

If you want to check out Pixl you can download it for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 right here in the Store, use the QR below, or swipe to the right in our app.
