Facebook For iOS Updated With New Photo Viewer Button For Saving, Sharing And More

May 14, 2013
Facebook, the main iOS client of the hugely popular social network of the same name, has just been updated with several improvements. Most notable among these improvements is the addition of a new button in the app's photo viewer on iPhone and iPad. This button, which assumes the appearance of an ellipsis or what is commonly known as a "more" button, is in line with the already existing buttons for liking, commenting, and tagging. The new "more" button presents additional options. But these options have actually been available in the photo viewer by long-pressing on a photo. But for most users who don't know about these hidden options, the new button is a welcome improvement. When viewing a photo by others, you can tap the new "more" button to save, share, or report the photo. But when viewing any of your own photos, you can tap it to access all of those options as well as to make the photo your profile picture. Facebook for iOS has also been updated with improved places editing when checking in on iPhone. Now, upon tapping the edit button for a place in the check-in screen, you can specify whether you want to suggest edits for the place or just mark the place as duplicate. Finally, Facebook for iOS has been updated with faster loading of events on iPhone. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Facebook for iOS is available now in the App Store for free.
