Flickr have updated their iOS application adding the ever-so-important hashtag support. Flickr for iOS users can now add a hashtag to not just the photo's title or description, but they can also run a search to find all photos using that term, which comes in handy.




With Flickr boasting over 6 billion photos, Flickr users would know that searching for photos for a specific event of occasion might come up with some weird results. People prone their photos with tags of all of the same thing, regardless of whether the tag is suitable for that particular photo or not. Flickr's news comes just after Facebook talking of adding hashtag support, something that Twitter have enjoyed for quite a while now.
