Get started with Facebook Camera

The Facebook Camera app for the iPhone has been released, allowing you to easily share photos on your Facebook account, complete with filters.

Facebook Camera was just released for any iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 4.0 and later. The new Camera app from Facebook allows you to upload and share multiple photos, whereas the Facebook app restricts you to uploading only one photo at a time. With Facebook Camera you can also crop, rotate, and even add 1 of 14 total filters to a photo. Even having just bought Instagram , Facebook has proceeded to release an app that some would say competes directly with Instagram.

If you're curious about the look and feel of the app, watch the video below for a complete walk-through of Facebook Camera.

With more and more apps being released by Facebook, all aiming to replace a different native app on our smartphones, one has to wonder: when will the Facebook phone go from being a rumor to being a reality? I'd argue that Facebook is teaching users how to use its mythical device, one app at a time, including the upcoming App Center service. The learning curve, if Facebook does ever release its own device, will be almost nonexistent.

You can download Facebook Camera from the App Store today for free.
