Flickr Adds Nearby Feature to Mobile Web Client for Android

flickr_logoFlickr has announced a rather cool update to their mobile web client.  The Mobile Nearby page ties your web browser and GPS together to determine where exactly it is you are in the world and then presents you with photos that have been take in that same general area.  Rather than showing specifically where each photo was taken, the site groups photos into a general radius with thumbnails for each.

Use this to explore your neighborhood, or find the best places to photograph local landmarks from. Reload the page as you walk around a city, and see the things that have happened there in the past. You’ll see a place through the eyes of the flickrverse.

Head to m.flickr.com and check it out!  The best part is there is no software to install on your phone, everything runs through the browser.  That sound you hear is the collective sigh of relief from G1 owners running low on storage space.
