Commenting functions get tweaks
Photo hosting site 500px has released a significant update of its iOS app, v2.2. The upgrade includes a new, translucent "edge-to-edge" design, allowing images to fill more screen space. The iPad has received still extra design improvements, including a better photo details drawer -- displaying each person who likes or favorites a submission -- as well as the general display of friends' avatars alongside their likes, favorites, and comments in the Flow view.
Both the iPhone and iPad interfaces have been given new comment controls. Swiping on a comment will reveal the Like and Reply actions; liking a comment will promote it to the Top Comments section. The app is a free download, and runs on devices with iOS 6 or later.
