Unity Facebook App Adds Muti-photo Uploads and Easier Installation

Multiple photo uploading and easier installation feature in the latest release of Facebook Unity applet ‘Faccialibro‘.

Also fixed is a bug that prevented some users from running the applet correctly.

Multiple Photo Upload

The big feature in this update is support for Facebook photo uploading, and it couldn’t be simpler to use: just drag and drop your selection of photos on to the Faccialibro Launcher icon and the photos will automatically be uploaded. If you want them to appear in a specific folder, select a folder using the ‘Photo Album’ quicklist entry prior to uploading.

Authorise the application with Facebook

In order for Faccialibro to receive notification of alerts it first has to be ‘authorised’ with Facebook. This isn’t a hassle; click on the Faccialibro icon now in your launcher to open Facebook in your browser. A prompt will show asking you to ‘Allow’ permissions for the app.

Once authorised you can close the window and let the applet do the work.
