Amid reports of Facebook and Apple strengthening their partnership, the social networking website has updated its standalone iOS camera app to version 1.0.2 . The update brings in a new screen name for the app which involves inclusion of a bullet point. Apart from new name, the update is said to bring more reliable uploads.
It's learnt that when Facebook released its standalone camera app last month, it appeared with a screen name - “Camera.”. Apple's own built-in camera app also has “Camera.” screen name. To distinguish its app from the iOS camera app, Facebook rolled out the update, which gives the app a new name - “Camera•”.
Other upgrades that the app brings include detailed information of location services; though Facebook says the app works better when the location services are turned off. The update also fixes quite a few bugs that caused multiple posts on Timeline. After the update, the photos appear in an arranged manner.
Facebook had launched its standalone camera-app last month, which allowed users to add Instagram-like filters and post multiple images from their phone, among other features. The application also has a newsfeed, similar to the full-fledge Facebook app, but focusses on friends' photos.
Users can like or comment on friends' pictures through the app, like one would do on full-fledged Facebook. The app also has a “Me” tab, which shows pictures in which you are tagged. To know more about Facebook's camera app, click here.
