Facebook Continues to Improve For iPhone With Camera App Update

Mark Zuckerberg wasn't lying on Facebook's earnings call a few weeks ago - the company is working on lots of updates to its mobile apps. Last week an improved Facebook iOS 5.0 app was released and today the company is releasing an update to Facebook's standalone camera app.

Starting today, users of the Facebook Camera app for the iPhone and iPod Touch will see an update pop up in the app store, which includes notifications about new tags, likes, or comments. Those all appear now in a news feed in the app. Additionally, the app lets you add photos to any album you choose. The other tweaks are fairly minor, but still helpful: you can see the names and profile photos of those who like a photo and you can like a specific comment.

This is the first update to the Facebook Camera, which was released in late May. However, the app still hasn't made its way to Android phones. Facebook implied last week to ABC News that it plans to update its Android app soon. Facebook will also be integrated within Apple's iOS 6.
