TechCrunch has gotten its hands on a bunch of documents and images outlining a new Facebook photo app for Apple's iOS. The new app borrows a lot from the large pool of photo sharing apps available for the platform and integrates the features with Facebook's ecosystem.
The supposed app features new gallery views of photos your friends have shared on Facebook as well as integrated people and places tagging. The app has both single-shot and multi-shot sharing modes. There are also filters like Instagram and Picplz on offer that allow users to change the look of their photos quickly and easily. Users can browse their photo feed from Facebook and comment and like photos in an all new filmstrip gallery view. The app is said to use many HTML5 elements, so it has potential to be easily ported to Android.
It is not known whether this will be a new, stand-alone application or whether the photo features will be integrated into the existing Facebook app.
