Proximity Photos update brings integration with other apps, new translations and more

Proximity Photos is an app that lets you discover places around you through photos taken by other people. It pulls publicly shared photos from Flickr and will contain any notes left by the person that shared the photo. We took a quick look at the app previously and it's a great way of discovering new things and places in unknown places. Today, the app sees an update with some new features, as well as the regular improvements and bug fixes.
