The new Facebook app for iPhone and iPad hit the App Store yesterday which promises a mobile experience that’s twice as fast as the previous version. Download it from iTunes Store. The new version speeds up the Facebook mobile experience to make everything from scrolling through your News Feed and photos to simply starting up the app a bit smoother.
With a faster load times for news stories and photos there are minor upgrades too. Messenger, which was previously a standalone app has now been integrated into the general Facebook app. Photos now appear in full screen mode and you can swipe between those like you did in the iPhone’s camera roll.
A “Sort” feature lets you sift through the stories in your News Feed by Top Stories and Most Recent. And iPad users can now view Timeline.
Definitely this long awaited speed update is good news both for the users and for the advertiser-hungry Facebook.
