Facebook for iPhone updated


one of the most buggiest app in the world. if only the world knew how bad this app is. the media should really address it, just like they address Facebooks success.

Haven't been able to view updated comments on uploaded pictures for about a year now. Plus you can't "like" comments. WTH? You would figure with all of these geeks diligently writing code day in and day out, their iPhone app would be firing on all cylinders. Instead it is quite the opposite. Fail.

To view updated comments on pictures click "see all", wait for the thumbnails to load and then go back to the picture. Voila, comments are refreshed.

I really wish they would relase a Friendcaster for iPhone. They have an iPad app but it does nothing. The Friendcaster for android does so much more. You can like posts, comments and see who like them. Post on your pages. A lot.

Might actually be a good time for me to delete FB for iPhone lol. I barely check it on my MacBook and it will never be that good on mobile anyway. Google+ is now my favorite messaging app (huddles), local people finder (nearby), and reader of interesting stuff from people I follow. It's like the best of Twitter, FB and other parts of the web ;-)

Worst app I have on my phone. It is constantly crashing and never works properly. Maybe it's time to delete it. Sorry Facebook but you suck!

I have been having issues with the way that FB for iPhone has been updating. The first update that shows will be from 9PM the night before, followed by a post from two hours ago, followed by a post from 2 minutes ago. It's like it can't sort. Starting to use Hootsuite to review and make posts on my iPhone.

The app likes to not post when I really want to post something or upload a picture. Seriously the one app I have that I can't count on. Hope the "bug fixes" work.

Bug fixes? After updating the app, I launched the app and it crashed. Launched again and it crashed. Had to restart the phone to get it to work right.

After the update, there are no notifications. I have the number of notifications before opening the app, but after opening it doesn't let me see them.
