iPhoto for iOS updated to version 1.1

Apple has gone update crazy, ladies and gentlemen. Not only did it release iOS 6 and the OS X Mountain Lion update to 10.8.2 today, but it also updated iPhoto for iOS to version 1.1. This new update coincides nicely with the jump to iOS 6, and it comes packing a lot of new features. Hit the jump for some of the highlights along with a full list of added features.

Like the OS X 10.8.2 update before it, the iPhoto v1.1 update brings a few new Facebook-related features with it. Users can now upload videos directly to Facebook and add comments to photos that are posted to the social network. Users can also set their location and tag their friends when they upload a new photo to Facebook, so you can almost immediately let the world know when your friends inevitably do something stupid during a night out on the town.

Users can also take advantage of six new ink effects designed by the folks at Apple, and good news for those of you using an third-gen iPad, as iPhoto now supports images up to 36.5-megapixels - a feature that will also be available on the iPhone 5 when it launches on Friday. Apple has added support for iPod Touch with this latest release, and has included some enhancements to photo journals as well. Take a look at the full list of new features in iPhoto 1.1:

• Added support for iPod touch (4th generation and later)
