Facebook for iOS now uploads to albums
Facebook for iOS has been updated to enable photo uploads to specific albums, bringing both iOS and Android apps up to speed with one another
It's Facebook update day. We've just reported on the Facebook update for Android that boosts performance no end, and now it looks like the iOS app is also getting the update treatment. The latest update however improves neither speed or performance like the Android overhaul, but instead enables photo uploads to a specific album, a feature that has been present in the Android Facebook app for some time.
This means rather than have pictures go into a default folder such as mobile uploads, iOS users can now organise their pictures in a way that suits them at the point of upload.
A few weeks ago, iOS saw its iPhone app make the leap from HTML5 to a native client in a bid to improve performance, and indeed it did. This huge update then rolled out onto Android just hours ago.
Now that iOS has received the album upload feature that's been available on Android for a long time, it's clear Facebook is working towards less disparity between the two mobile operating system's applications.
With over 500 million Facebook mobile users, it's little wonder the Palo Alto company is investing so heavily in the mobile version of its social network, lets hope these efforts extend to the - by comparison - infant Windows Phone and its considerably less capable Facebook application.
