Facebook for iOS got a nice bump yesterday when it was updated to version to 5.1. Unlike its Android counterpart, which seems to be trapped in development purgatory, the iOS version of Facebook is being regularly updated with new features and improved performance.

The latest additions include multiple photo uploading and filters, features taken from the standalone Facebook Camera app that was released earlier this year. Now that Facebook for iOS is built in native code, the two teams behind each project must have decided to consolidate their wares into one program. The batch upl0ads allow you pick a specific album, or create a new one, and each photo can be customized with a number of filters a la Instagram.

Facebook Messenger has also been consolidated into the app. Now there are two directions in which you can swipe: right to reveal the contextual menu, and left for a list of online Facebook friends.

The company has also adding Gifts, but it’s a U.S.-only feature at the moment, so we can’t speak to its usefulness.
