Facebook Messenger gets iOS 7 makeover, more

Facebook has updated Facebook Messenger, its free messaging app for mobile devices. The new 3.0 release is available for download from the App Store.

The software provides a way to send and receive private and group messages in Facebook without having to open the Facebook app itself. You can attach photos and "stickers," record voice messages and more.

The new 3.0 version gains an interface overhaul that makes it more consistent with iOS 7's new interface. Also new in this release is the ability to message anyone in your phone book, not just Facebook friends.

Do you use Facebook Messenger? Are you more apt to now that it's more iOS 7-friendly and has these new features? Tell me what you think in the comments.
