  • Facebook Announces That An iOS 7-Redesigned App Will Launch Today


    On Wednesday, Facebook announced that a redesigned Facebook application would be released later in the day for iOS 7.

    Above, Facebook for iOS 7 has a flatter user interface with more vibrant coloring. The top blue bar of the application is translucent and changes dynamically as you scroll through content. Swipe gestures have also been added.

    But that's not all. Facebook also taunts a new menu at the bottom of the application that makes it easier to navigate the application. The menu offers button shortcuts for the News Feed, your Friend Requests, your Messages, your Notifications, and More.

    In a way, the update seems to be going back in time, bringing back the old iOS menu-type interface rather than relying so heavily on a sidebar to navigate. The More button on the new Menu will bring you to features that you would normally see if you opened the sidebar in the current version of Facebook for iOS.

    The update will be available in the App Store later today, but no specific time is given.

      If it doesn't show up in updates go to the app in the App Store, it will say open but click on the app to view the details and it will say update.

      Not fixed.

      Got this from MacRumors:
      For any of you's who have been frustrated with no sounds for notifications on Facebook, and to those who despises them!

      There is now a fix for both worlds..Yes Facebook finally fixed their facebook notification sounds on iPhone. This post is for the people who enjoy getting facebook notifications, like me!

      -Go to the facebook app on phone
      -Go to Account Settings
      -Go to Notifications
      -Go to Mobile Push
      -Look at the top of the screen, go to where it says "Sound for push notifications"
      -Edit it to ON for all notifications

      Enjoy guys. And for those who dont want sound than dont edit this and leave at default!!

      It can access your camera roll and your photo stream.

      I've always thought there wasn't enough screen real estate for landscape to be of any use with FB. Just MHO, but to each their own.

      I know that...sorry... I'm talking about the fact that after FB v5.0.1, you can't get into and post pics synced from PC to device....pissed me off...I modified the plist file so I don't have to look at the stupid update badge for it, n loaded 5.0.1 back on...I'll keep that until it won't work anymore, unless they fix that!....stupid Facebook...

      My girlfriends iPhone has had the toolbar on the bottom for a couple months now. I think they was secretly rolling it out per device identifier. Because she had it for a couple months, then I put her on iOS 7 when the GM came out and about an hour into using Facebook it all the sudden changed back to the bottom tool bar version. I never got it but when I googled it it seems very very few people got it. But some did. I assume it was by device number because my gf got hers back after a restore as new and redownload of the app and it wasn't like that at first
