Facebook Camera iPhone app

The official Facebook app has been in Apple's App Store ever since the market launched back in July 2008, but today the social networking site introduced a new iPhone app in the App Store with a focus on photos. Known as Facebook Camera, the app allows users to upload multiple photos to Facebook at once rather than posting just one at a time like in the regular Facebook app. Facebook Camera also allows users to do basic photo editing, like cropping and rotating, and also contains a handful of filters that can be applied to shots. If you'd just prefer to browse photos from others, you can use the Facebook Camera app to view a feed of photos uploaded by your Facebook friends.

Facebook's official Camera app looks like a great way for users to edit and post photos to the social network, especially for those times when you want to upload several shots at once and make a full album. While it may seem kind of strange for Facebook to put out a dedicated camera app after its recent purchase of Instagram, one of the focuses of this new Camera app appears to be making it easier to batch upload images to Facebook, which can't be done with Instagram. It's also likely that the Facebook Camera app has been in the works for a while before Facebook's Instagram purchase was announced. You can check out more screenshots and a video introduction to Facebook Camera below, and if you've got an iPhone and want to check the app out yourself, you can find it in the App Store by clicking here.

Introducing Facebook Camera

May 24, 2012

By Dirk Stoop

Today, we're introducing Camera, a new mobile app that makes using Facebook photos faster and easier.

See friends’ photos all in one place

When you launch the app, you'll see a feed of just great photos from the people you care about. You can swipe to see more of any album or tap to enlarge an individual photo. 

Share multiple photos fast

Now you can quickly share multiple photos all at once instead of having to post one at a time. Just select the shots you want to share by tapping the check-mark on each photo and then hit post. You'll have a chance to add a caption, say where you were and tag friends before you share. 

It's also easy to edit photos with new tools like the ability to crop, rotate and add filters to any picture in your camera roll.

How to get Camera

Camera will be available for iPhone starting later today. Get a link to the app texted to your phone or just search for 'Facebook Camera' in the App Store.
