If you own an All-In-One Windows 7, or a Windows 7 Tablets you can now download the dedicated Flickr App for Windows 7 families. Yes you need to have a Windows 7 Tablets touch screen in order for the Flickr App to work properly. Since we have neither device on our hand, we tried to install on the regular Windows 7 machine. Overall the application looks very sharp, for Windows 7 it’s a Sliverlight based application the UI is the familiar Windows 7 Phone UI, it’s kind like playing on a big Windows 7 Phone.
One problem you might run into is the requirement of Native Extension For Microsoft Silverlight 1.0, you can download it here if you have trouble installing this application.

You can login to your Flickr account from here.
Overall, it’s a great application for touch devices, the navigation around the application all controlled by touch gestures, with the basic mouse and keyboard you can’t do much with this application.
