Facebook Camera makes its debut

The social network launches an official iOS app that lets you capture, filter, edit, and share photos.


Not so awfully long after it announced its $1 billion plan to purchase Instagram, Facebook today released a photo-sharing app of its own, Facebook Camera.

Currently available only for iOS devices, Facebook Camera allows users to shoot, edit, filter, and share photos to Facebook without ever leaving the app.

Features include posting multiple photos at a time, adding a caption, cropping, and applying one of 14 vintage-style filters.

More than just a photo-publishing app, however, Facebook Camera lets you browse photos your friends are sharing to Facebook, and allows you to comment and like images within the stream. Deleting photos or friends' comments doesn't seem to be an option, though.

The app is now available in the Apple App Store, and according to the Verge, Facebook is considering the app for other platforms.
