iPhoto 1.1: Saves Multiple Shots to Camera Roll, Tighter Facebook Integration, and More!

iPhoto 1.1 is iOS 6 ready, and it has brought with it a number of significant changes. Facebook integration is tighter, the library refreshes faster and less often, and edits for multiple apps can be saved (and this can happen in the background, too!). The latter two are especially awesome because load times and the inability to save multiple photos to the Camera Roll were what were really keeping me from having fun with iPhoto.

I’ve been using Camera+ and its Lightbox feature to edit pictures before saving them to the Camera Roll, but now that iPhoto is a little more capable, I think I’m ready to give it another try.

For those of you interested, the full v1.1 change notes are below:
