Facebook for iOS Update Redesigns Like and Comment Buttons, Adds Free VoIP Feature
Facebook has issued an update to the free iOS application in the App Store today, bringing it up to version 5.5. The update focuses on enhancing the usability of the timeline, by redesigning the Like and Comment buttons so they’re easier to tap on a mobile device. They have been enlarged, and now appear they do in the screenshot below:
Also improved, is the down-pointing arrow button at the top right of the status update. Tapping that will display a menu allowing you to hide the status update, report or mark the status update as spam, or copy a link to the status update so you can more easily share it with your friends. The share feature is now available in all languages.
The update also brings a free VoIP feature to mobile Facebook users in the United States and Canada. The feature allows you to call any of your Facebook friends at no cost, however data usage costs from your carrier may apply.
To update to the latest version of Facebook for iOS, you can head over to your Updates tab in the App Store and find the update if you have Facebook for iOS installed. If you don’t have Facebook for iOS installed yet, you can download it for free from this link
