Finally after a long hiatus, Yahoo has given its iPhone app a new lease on life via an update which is available now from their App Store. Now at version 2.0, the Flickr iPhone app is said to have been completely redesigned from the previous version.

The app is now sporting a new user interface and for those of you who still have the app installed on your iPhone and are deciding to update it now, don’t be surprised to find that the app’s interface resembles that of Instagram.

That’s right, Flickr for iPhone now has 16 image filters that you can apply to your photos. I have yet to try these photo filters since I’ve already deleted Flickr off my iPhone but I’m re-installing the app right now. If you have the update already, feel free to let us know how you find the 16 photo filters so far. Are they as good as Instagram’s?

Aside from the 16 photo filters and the interface re-design, the updated Flickr app for iPhone now also makes it simpler to sign-up and register, explore interesting photos from around the world and nearby, and full Flickr group capabilities.
