Just because the deal to acquire Instagram is going through without a hitch now doesn’t mean that Facebook isn’t still focused on its own photo app.

Today, the company released an update to its Camera app for iOS (or is it Camera* app?) which includes a few helpful features like notifications of comments, tags and likes, as well as the ability to upload photos to a specific album.

These are necessary enhancements to fully utilize the entire Photos product that Facebook has built.
