Flickr, the most popular photo sharing social network, has made a small but welcome update to its light box feature. The update targets iPad users specifically and allows images to be viewed full-screen in the browser, with a simple swiping motion enabled to cycle between previous and next images.

The feature can be accessed by selecting an image when in single image view mode, or by tapping the zoom icon. This simple usability update illustrates the increasing number of ‘app-like’ features found in traditional websites.
