After its CEO’s wedding, IPO, and the associated lawsuits over the past week, Internet giant Facebook Inc. is adding to the eventfulness with the introduction of Facebook Camera, its fourth iPhone application that arrived in the App Store Thursday evening.

Facebook Camera is intended enhance users’ photo experience with feeds of “just great photos from the people you care about,” Facebook said. Like the original Facebook app, the user could tap to enlarge an individual app, but with Facebook Camera, the user could also swipe right away to see more of any album.

The biggest perk of the new app is probably its option for multiple photo uploads at once instead of having to post one at a time. “Just select the shots you want to share by tapping the check mark on each photo and then hit post,” Facebook said in a press release.

Similar to the original app, the user could add a caption and location and tag friends before the photo is shared.

The user would also be able to edit photos with new tools such as cropping, rotating, and filtering for any picture in the iPhone’s camera roll.

Facebook Camera has become the newest member of the existing collection of iPhone Facebook applications comprising Facebook, Facebook Messenger, and Facebook Pages Manager. The application could be found by searching for “Facebook Camera” in the App Store. The 4.9-megabyte application has received an average of four out of five stars from 26 ratings as of Thursday evening.
