And now with the iPhone app, you can carry all your best photos and look at the work that others do right from your pocket.
The 500px app has been designed from ground up, so it works perfectly on the iPhone. It also supports the taller 4-inch display on the iPhone 5. The interface is stunning, with fading menus, easy to use and well positioned buttons and more. If you aren’t a photographer, you can still enjoy the amazing photos by viewing community galleries and other public sections. It’s similar to Instagram in a lot of ways, but 500px is like a Lamborghini whereas Instagram is only a sooped-up Ford Fiesta.
Comment on photos, like them or add them to your favorite, all from the app. The Flow feature keeps you updated with all of your friends photos and activity, built notifications are also present so you get alerts when someone interacts with you or comments/likes your photos.
