500px for Android is a great way to search top quality photography. All categories are hand curated, which means real people actually looked at and tagged them. Why is this better than just Googling images? Because unless you get really creative your search strings, Google's results bring up the same pics, again and again. The benefit of hand curating is the quality and versatility of the search results.
The menus on 500px are clean with tons of categories to choose from. Flow is interesting because it offers a live feed of your friends photos, updated automatically. You can also set notifications to be alerted of new posts and faves. Tagging and liking pics is equally easy and intuitive.
The search tool works well and brought up a lot of undiscovered pictures. And overall, I'd say the quality and resolution of all the pics is top notch, ranging from bona fide artists to really creative hobbyists.
Resume500px is a great way to discover quality and inspiring pics. Just be aware of each photo's usage rights before borrowing them for your own projects.
