Facebook’s Camera app gets a new name: Camera•. Yes, “•”

Facebook’s Camera app gets a new name: Camera•. Yes, “•”

When Facebook launched its Camera app, many of us noticed that when it was displayed on your home screen, it simply said “Camera”. How could Apple let them get away with that, as its the same name as their own built-in app?

Looks like that changed today in a pretty hefty update:

• More reliable uploads
• Better explanation about location services access
• App works better when location services are turned off
• Help Center is available in the app
• Screen name is now “Camera•”

Slight change, but you have to believe that Apple had something to do with it. Since Facebook is now integrated into the upcoming iOS 6, it looks like the two companies are on a course to play nice.

We’ve reached out to Facebook for comment and we’ll let you know what they say.
