Facebook for iPhone updated

Facebook for iPhone has been updated with map view and event check-in.

  • Added Map View for Places
  • Added the ability to Check in to Events that you're attending
  • Added the ability to unfriend from the phone
  • Improved News Feed
  • Improved notifications UI

The update notes do not include bug fixes, but the Facebook for iPhone Facebook page claims that they've "fixed a ton of bugs". Peronsally, I've experienced a couple bugs within a few minutes of installing the update. Specifically, after tapping a notification about a comment on my photo, the comment was non-existant, and two of my friend's photos had a grayed-out comment box even though they had comments and I had permission to comment on them.

Anyone download the update? What do you think of the new features? Are you still experiencing any bugs?
