indicommons app ipadAre you Flickr-addicted?
Are you a pro-am photographer?
Meet Indicommons for iPhone and iPad!

The Indicommons application provides a new way to access the wealth of historical imagery and information from around the world that is found in the Commons. No matter where you are, you can browse through the various institutions’ collections, or search the Commons for items of interest. If you have a Flickr account, you can also help enrich the Commons by adding tags and comments to the various Commons items directly from the application.

Where exactly does Commons come from?
Here’s a quick Commons primer even though you’re a Flickr fan:

Indicommons represents outreach from the Flickr community beyond Flickr, to broaden knowledge of The Commons among the public and civic institutions around the world and to increase participation by the public in the Commons. The name, Indicommons (pronounced “in de commons”) derives from the Latin indico, to make publicly known, and commons, the old English word chosen by Flickr for its Commons project, meaning the land held in common by the people of a town.

A Short feature list for the Indicommons app (supporting both iPad and iPhone/iPod touch):

  • Support for Flickr galleries – add photos to your galleries on Flickr to share your curations with the rest of the world.
  • Support for video – now you can watch the videos that have been uploaded to the Commons
  • Image caching – recently viewed photos are now cached locally to improve load times.
  • Support for iOS4 multitasking
