There was a bit of a ruckus in December when Instagram changed its Terms of Service and then changed them back. At the same time, Yahoo released an all-new Flickr app for iPhone that was clearly an Instagram competitor, but word on the street quickly grew and word was good: Flickr was a good competitor. I wasn’t attached to Instagram and decided to give it a shot over the holidays to see if I would prefer it, and I’m glad I did.

Let’s take a look and see whether it can pull off all that it claims to!
