Apple’s 3D touch is definitely one of the newer things that iPhones can do, even if most of us still debate its importance. Surely it’s better than just long-pressing the display on Android to a certain degree, but it’s not really something we’d consider groundbreaking. What we do like is that it’s brought a bevy of shortcuts to iOS apps, so long as these support the service, and even that continues to grow.
Facebook has just decided to join the 3D Touch crowd today with an update to its app on iOS. As with the rest of the apps that support Apple’s new user interface feature, the Facebook App will now allow you to act on things without needing to enter the app. As it currently stands you’ll be able to take a photo from the context menu, in addition to uploading an existing photo, and even updating your status without needing to enter the app.
It’s only a matter of time before more developers join the crowd, though it’s definitely taken some time.
