Purple Palace got selective hearing, much?

Yahoo! has finally developed a Flickr app for Apple's iPad – but the move has upset Microsoft Windows' fans who have accused the Purple Palace of having "selective hearing" about its userbase.

The Marissa Mayer-run company, which bought photo-sharing site Flickr in 2005, said on Friday that it had cooked up an app for Cupertino's fondleslab years after it first landed.

Flickr tweeted: "We've heard you loud and clear!" It then linked to a blog post announcing the update.

But users waded in with complaints about Yahoo! failing to develop an app for users of the Windows Phone and Windows RT.

Meanwhile, Yahoo! said its retina-optimised Flickr app for the iPad, which runs on iOS 8, "can now display images in high resolution by pushing up to 3 million pixels per photo."

The app also comes loaded with editing tools and, er, "live filters", you lucky, lucky fanbois. ®
