The popular family album and private photo-sharing app 23snaps has just received a major update that introduces a new look along with additional improvements.

Released back in May 2012, 23snaps has just been updated to version 5.0. The updated app most notably features a new look that comes with a new navigation scheme. The app’s old sidebar menu has been discarded in favor of a bottom tab navigation menu that offers quicker access to the family journal, the news feed, notifications, and more:

A whole new look for 23snaps! We’ve made it even easier for you to get to your family journal, your news feed and your connections’ content. With a simple new navigation, 23snaps is easier to use than ever.

Version 5.0 of 23snaps also adds the ability to edit and enhance photos even when they’re being uploaded in a group. In the group uploader screen, options are now at your disposal to crop and add filters and blurs to each photo in the group.

The updated app also includes improvements to the new photo and video uploader that was introduced through the app’s previous update. Said uploader allows for the uploading of more photos at once, more quickly and of a higher quality.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, 23snaps 5.0 is available now on the App Store for free.
