Facebook Creates New iPhone App – Mimics Instagram

Posted on: May 25th, 2012 by Tetrabyte No Comments

Facebook has released a new app designed for the iPhone.

This app, named ‘Camera’, is very similar to the popular social networking app called ‘Instagram’ – a tool designed for users to take a picture, add effects and instantly upload it to the social network for everyone to see.

Whilst ‘Camera’ isn’t as aesthetic as Instagram, it’s main benefit over the popular social networking app is that it can upload multiple photos at once, meaning that members can share photos of events, days out and gatherings all at once rather than uploading them one at a time.

Facebook recently put in a bid to purchase Instagram for $1.1bn, and despite the deal having not been completed yet it seems that Facebook are looking to maintain their dominance in the mobile social networking market.
