Are your friends constantly bugging you about app suggestions for their iPhone/iPod touch? While you could always tell friends to buzz off, there is a slightly better way to go about the situation. One website hopes to help you and your friends find the best applications on the app store.
On Monday Facebook released version 2.0 of the Facebook iPhone application, bringing with it many significant improvements and additions. The biggest thing of note is that the interface has been significantly improved. You can now view and address notifications, see the full News Feed and News Feed comments, and tag photos right from the application. The update is also said to be much faster and more stable, especially for those who have a large number of friends. Full list of improvements follows:
Benjamin Ling has announced that Facebook is planning to release a Cocoa framework for the iPhone that will allow app developers to integrate with Facebook Connect, letting them add a social dimension to their applications by integrating them into the Facebook social network. Using this, apps will be able to integrate with the social identity and profiles of Facebook users. This could be a big leap for social networking on the iPhone, but it could also mean some heavy competition for iPhone social network start-ups.
Those of you who have tried the native Facebook application for the iPhone will know that we weren't crazy about it's initial feature set. When it was first released, it had fewer features than the iPhone web app (which is among the better web applications out there). If you've since given up on it, we suggest you give it another try. They have updated the application to include all of the missing features.
