Despite the release of frequent updates for Facebook for Android, one feature that has been missed by many users like me is the option to download, upload and share images to/from your device. But the wait seems to be over as a very simple solution has just been pushed in to the Android Market in the form of MyAlbum For Facebook. The usability of the app, combined with the simplicity of its interface, accounts for a precious little tool that enables Facebook users to share, upload images and download whole albums with a fair degree of convenience. Downloading is as easy as one, two, three! Just login to your Facebook account, select/check your favorite Facebook album(s) and tap the download button to save all your favorite Facebook images directly to your device.
The app’s concept is as simple as it sounds, and there’s nothing too fancy about the overall interface to go ballistic about. All the downloaded images are saved by default in the /sdcard/MyAlbum/ folder. To upload an image or album, long press any image of your choice and select Share>MyAlbum. This will lead you to the album upload menu within the app. From within this menu, you can create a new album or upload photos to an existing one. There is a Hide button available on the upload page that allows you to continue with your routine work while the albums get uploaded to your Facebook account in the background. Once all the images are uploaded, a notification will appear automatically.
Despite all its handy features, MyAlbum for Facebook is still somewhat restricted when it comes to adding captions to your photos, downloading your friends’ albums or selecting a bunch of photos from within an album. Overall, the app must be commended for the unique and much sought-after features that it brings for Facebook fanatics. The app is availabe on Android Market free of cost and requires Android 2.1 and higher. So why wait any longer? Get your hands on MyAlbum for Facebook now and start downloading/uploading your most treasured images from/to your favorite social networking platform today!
Update: MyAlbum for Facebook Pro has been released to the Google Play Store. Priced at a meager $1.90, the paid version of the app not only helps users get rid of the annoying ads, but also lets them natively tag photos. Download link to the recently released Pro variant of the app is provided below.
