Facebook brings Photo Viewer button to updated iOS app

Facebook has upped its iOS app to version 6.1.1 and introduced a bunch of new features. 


The new Photo viewer button on the app will allow users to save, share or make profile pictures. This is great since earlier iOS users could only like, comment or tag their friends. Other improvements include better places editing when checking in on iPhone. Events load faster on the iPhone, following the update. 


Head over to the iTunes store to grab the update. The Facebook app for iOS is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. To be able to use Facebook, iOS users will require devices running iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimised for iPhone 5.

The Facebook app on iOS devices allows users to see what their friends are up to on the social network. They can share updates, photos and videos too. In addition to that, they can get notifications each time a friend comments or likes their posts. Then there is the ability to initiate group messages. They can also play games and use their favourite apps. 


The app was updated to version 5.6 in March; it gave users the ability to update their cover photos on the go. iPhone users can now take a new cover photo or pick one from their gallery.


Facebook claimed that with the update, it would take lesser taps to start group messaging. Those looking for group conversations were in luck, too, as the update made it easier to name and find group conversations.
