Following the Facebook app's recent update to 5.0 with major speed improvements, the Facebook Camera for iPhone app has also received a significant amount of features to it's recent update. These features include notifications, better photo management, likes, and comments, and other UI improvements.
The types of notifications supported by Facebook Camera or those for tags, likes, and comments on photos. To view the notifications, simply tap on the News tab to see a list.
In addition to notifications, Facebook Camera now lets you create new albums or add photos to any pre-existing album. You can also add likes and comments on posts that feature more than one photo and "like" individual comments. If a photo features a long caption, you can now scroll through it when viewing the photo in fullscreen. Lastly, names and profile pictures for everyone who liked a photo can be viewed.
None of these new features are groundbreaking, but they certainly address many of the complaints users had about the Facebook Camera app. It's great to see Facebook investing resources in improving the user experience of their iPhone and iPad apps.
What do you think of the update? Now that you can view notifications, add photos to specific albums, and like comments, do you think you'll use Facebook Camera more often?
