The official Facebook app for iPad and iOS was updated yesterday, to version 5.0.
This update promises to bring a much speedier experience to the Facebook app – as the change list for it makes clear:
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
I installed the update yesterday evening and spent a good chunk of time with the app last night – and it really does seem much zippier all the way around. It also appears to be a little more stable and consistent so far, though of course time will tell on that front.
I’m sure we have lots of iPad Facebook users here. What do you all think of this latest Facebook app update?
