Facebook has released a completely rebuilt version of their iOS app. As some of you who used the application may know, the app was horrible. It was slow, and an absolute pain to use.
We’ve been testing it out a bit. Not a lot, as we just downloaded it, but it already feels much snappier than the previous version. Of course we are sitting at home with our wifi connection, but it didn’t seem to make much of a difference before, either. The app was just poorly-built. No more screaming “Facebook for iPhone sucks!”
Here is the list of improvements:
What’s New in Version 5.0
We’ve rebuilt the app so it’s faster and easier to use.
* Scrolling through news feed is faster than ever
* New banner lets you tap to quickly see more stories – no need to refresh
* Photos open fast and close with one downward swipe
* Instant access to your notifications
