Facebook Launches An Instagram-Style Photo App – Welcome Facebook Camera!
Why it’s pretty cool
Facebook Camera has three basic features that are made to impress:
- Share multiple photos – until today, uploading your mobile photos via the Facebook app was pretty clunky and limited you to one photo at a time. NOW, you’ll be able to tell a story with your pictures and videos by selecting as many as you’d like all at once.
- Quickly edit photos – Just like the well-known and loved Instagram, you’ll now be able to quickly edit and apply filters to your Facebook photos with this new app.
- Tap to tag (easily share) – nothing new here but you’ll still have the ability to quickly tap to tag all your friends and family
For now, this new app is only available to iOS users, however, a lot of users still aren’t able to download it in the mobile app store (myself included). Facebook has not (and will not) release any estimated date of an android version but I’d bet it’s around the corner soon.
Frankly, I’m surprised they would release such an app with no Android support. Just shocking if you as me.
