TL;DR The whole app has been redesigned from the ground up to offer a brighter, more beautiful, and more streamlined 500px experience. The photos you love have never looked better on a mobile device! We’ve also added an awesome new feature called Galleries, and merged Likes and Favorites into one action: the Like.
Say hello to a brand new 500px Android app, redesigned from scratch to make for the best mobile photo experience possible.
Not only is the new 500px easier on the eyes with beautiful new animations, full aspect ratio photos, and a light visual style, it’s also easier to use and navigate no matter how you prefer interacting with your friends and fellow photo lovers on 500px.
Here are just a few of the new features you can look forward to using:
The new home feed keeps you up to date with the latest photos from the people you follow, mixing in recommendations so you’re always discovering new talent and meeting fellow photo enthusiasts from across the globe.
A new & improved Discover section ensures you’re never far away from the most inspirational photos on the Web, while making sure everybody who joins 500px has a chance to be seen.
Streamlined search lets you quickly and easily find the people and photos that move you most.
Your 500px profile has never looked better on a smartphone! Featuring the same sleek, minimalist styling as the rest of the app, each of your photos is now displayed in the appropriate aspect ratio under an eye-catching banner and profile photo.
GALLERIES! Released earlier today, the new Galleries feature lets you curate the photos that inspire you most into themed collections called Galleries. Showcase your favorite photos, create mood boards, show off curated collections of your best work, and more!
Finally, we’ve made one last big change: To make it easier for 500px members to interact with each other’s photos, Likes and Favourites have now evolved into one action—the Like—represented by the heart icon.
We are so excited to unveil the next evolution of the 500px mobile experience to all our Android users. Download 4.3 now and discover what this incredible community is all about!
