Facebook app for iPhone/iPod Touch gets an update
Facebook has yet again released an update for their iPhone and iPod touch application, this time with some long overdue UI improvements as well as bug fixes.
- Improved reliability in chat and messages
- Improved notifications UI
- Fixed memory usage
- Fixed some crashes
- Walls you cannot post on no longer show the text field at the top
- Restore ability to post as a page that you admin
- Fixed group photos
- Various Places improvements
Having just downloaded this update and played around with it for a few minutes I will say the new notifications UI is long overdue and provides a much cleaner and easier to use interface. Hopefully this update will also fix many of the issues users have been hoping to see fixed for a while now.
So go ahead and grab your updated Facebook app and let us know what you think of the improvements and as always if you have any issues we want to hear about those as well.
Get the best of iMore in your inbox, every day!
I like the cleaned up notifications alot more.
@Chris agreed the Black Navigation Bars are much nicer IMO.
AN UNIVERSAL FACEBOOK APP?
iPad is not a computer, we need an iPad app.
Also, improved notifications page??? WTF?!?! I'm lost. I'm now seeing crap I could care less about and have no idea what the hell it is!!! I like the old one better!
For those with chat issues I just use aim with my Facebook linked. Works SO MUCH better, get notifications and all. Another good thing is it never logs off.
The only bug that constantly annoys me has not been fixed. The scrolling bug. When pressing "Older posts..." it frequently resets to the top of my news feed. Supremely annoying and makes reading older posts hit and miss.
I also don't like how it will automatically scroll back up to the top when refreshing after switching back to the app on iOS 4.x.
If anyone has the old one or knows where i can get the previous version, email me direct so1o_m "at" yahoo "dot" com.
