Best Free iPad App of the Week: 500px

Share This:

Who doesn’t like free? And who doesn’t like great iPad apps? When the two come together it’s good stuff. With that in mind, we’d like to share our Best Free iPad App of the Week here every weekend.

This week’s pick is 500px, the official iPad app from the photo community 500px, which is a platform for drop-dead-gorgeous photos from creative and professional photographers.

The community has an amazing collection of images of landscapes, wildlife, portraits, still lifes – loads to discover and share or even buy. Their iPad app was recently updated for the Retina Display of iPad 3 and enables downloads of HD photos available for sale, lets you see photo geotags, has improved navigation and search and a NSFW filter.

This kind of app was born for the iPad. It’s perfect for browsing. Immerse yourself in the Editors Choice, Popular, Upcoming, Fresh or Market areas. You can filter by category or simply search by keyword. If you choose to create an account you can create a profile that stores favourites or see friends’ choices, read and leave comments. What’s nice is the in-built slideshow function which means you can leave the iPad on a stand and use it as a photo viewer. Here are just a few of the stunning images that caught my eye.

Here’s an App Store link for 500px.
