Flickr App Released for PlayStation Vita

January 19, 2012Written by Anthony Severino

The PlayStation Vita is capable of running a number of apps, including Facebook, Foursquare, the already released LiveTweet Twitter app, and more. Last night’s Japanese PlayStation Store update brought two new Vita games as well as a new app.

Along with wipEout 2048 and StarStrike Delta, a Flickr app was released for the PlayStation Vita on the Japanese PlayStation Network Store. The application is developed by Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc.

The app lets you view and share pictures, as well as leave comments – this is a full fledged Flickr app on the Vita.

It’s good to see that Sony will have these apps ready for the Western launch of the PlayStation Vita. We should see Skype, Facebook and Foursquare released in the coming weeks in preparation for Vita’s launch in the rest of the world.

We’ve just downloaded the Flickr app for Vita now, we’ll provide an update when we’ve had enough hands-on time with it.
