Facebook App For iPhone To Get Update For OS 3.0
The Facebook crew has announced an update for their Facebook app for the iPhone and iPod touch to be available “very soon”. The update is “98% done”, and adds 15 new features to the app, including many optimizations for the features available in OS 3.0. It also sports an impressive new interface that should make navigating the app a great deal easier.
- The “new” News Feed
- Events (including the ability to RSVP)
- Create new photo albums
- Upload photos to any album
- Zoom into photos
- Easier photo tagging
- Profile Pictures albums
- A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
- Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
- Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
- Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
- Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call
Push Notifications will not be available yet:
The one feature everyone is asking for, Push Notifications, is in development but it won’t make it into 3.0. You can expect it in a 3.1 update later this summer.
