    Photo sharing site 500px finally comes to Android. The app is geared toward beautiful image display and looks as slick as the site. The built in slideshow is a particularly nice feature and turns your device into a digital frame.

    The news gets better as the app is free for tablets and smartphones running Android 2.2 and above. Users of the app can browse 500px’s massive photo library, which includes EXIF information and location data (see What is metadata: copyright photos in 4 simple steps).

    Since the new iPad features retina display, 500px has reacted by including a new retina display optimized user interface and support for in-app photo purchases on its iPad app (read more: Do photographers really need the new iPad?).

    It’s great to see photography sites and apps taking advantage of the opportunities brought forward by the ever-improving technology in mobile devices.
