Facebook Camera

There are plenty of apps that allow you to share photos on Facebook, including the Facebook app itself. However, if you want something that'll let you share multiple photos that you can tag on the fly, look no further than the new Facebook Camera app for iPhone and iPod touch. Facebook Camera is an Instagram-ish app that allows you to snap photos (or choose from photos you already have in your camera roll,) edit them with crop, rotate, and filter tools, tag them, and get them posted on the world's most popular social network. In addition, Facebook Camera also lets you browse the image posts of all your friends, allowing you to skip all the links, complaints, game requests, and other stuff.

You can get Facebook Camera for free on the App Store, and you can find a video demo after the break.
