Apps: Flickr 2.30, Foursquare 6.4, TripAdvisor 8.0 + XCOM 1.3

Flickr (free) from Yahoo! updated to version 2.30.1503, enabling auto upload in iOS 7. Users can now automatically save their photos in Flickr’s 1TB-per-user storage space in full resolution. The app also now features auto straighten, letting users automatically straighten photos using the Flickr editor. Google sign-in issues have been fixed in the update, as well.

Foursquare (free) has made more major changes to its iOS app. Version 6.4 adds a “nearby” button to see what friends are around. Each friend’s most recent check-in is also shown, and more information can be accessed through their profiles. The app is also rolling out real-time recommendations to more iPhone users each day — checking in at a restaurant can show you a top menu item or daily special, for instance.

TripAdvisor has updated its free TripAdvisor Hotels Flights Restaurants app to version 8.0 with a complete redesign. Hotel prices now pop up right away when dates are entered, and new maps load faster, as well. The iPad app shows bigger photos, and features new city pages, among other additions.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown ($10) from 2K Games now features asynchronous multiplayer in version 1.3.0. Gamers can now create customized squads and challenge their friends online — multiplayer leader boards have also been added. XCOM has been optimized for iOS 7, as well.
