Facebook Camera for iPhone Launched, in the App Store Now

Facebook Camera for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi   3G, iPad (3rd generation) and iPad Wi-Fi   4G on the iTunes App Store

Facebook has launched their Facebook Camera app for the iPhone today – and it’s available in the App Store now. This app release is just a little over a month after Facebook bought Instagram, makers of the massively popular photo effects / sharing app.

Here’s the brief App Store intro for the app:

– Post multiple photos from your camera roll at a time
– Crop and apply filters to give your photos a new look
– Scroll down a single feed of all your friends’ photos
– Tag your friends, add photo captions and say where you are
– See photos from the different apps your friends use
