A Month After Buying Instagram, Facebook Drops Its Own Photo-Sharing App

A month after buying Instagram, Facebook drops its own photo-sharing app called Facebook camera. The app will, according to the company,  make “using Facebook photos faster and easier.”

When opened the app will feature a stream of photos from all of your friends and allow you to explore individual photo albums. Taking photos is as easy as clicking the button with the camera icon. From there you have the option of posting a single photo, or sharing a batch of photos simply by checking the ones ion your library you want to share.

Similar to Instagram, the Camera app allows you to edit your photos by cropping and rotating them, or adding one of nine filters.

Facebook camera is available for free in the app store
