  • Facebook Finally Adds Video Support for iPhone


    After six months, many iPhone users will be pleased to know that the Facebook app has gotten an long awaited update: Video Support. If you head over to the App Store now, you'll see that Facebook has been updated to 3.1.3.

    I mean really, it's great, but a little late there Facebook. Nonetheless, there are also some other updates to the app that make it a little less frustrating. Users now have the ability to access extended information on events such as walls, and the ability to upload photos that are 720px wide (in anticipation of iPhone 4 imagine), and of course bug fixes you couldn't even count if you tried.

    However, that being said, there are still LOTS of things missing, and I think Facebook is really slacking off here. There is no iPad support in this update. What is up with that? No iOS 4 support for multitasking either. I miss when Joe was developing At least he kept us in the know.


    New features in this version:
    - You can now watch Facebook videos.
    - You can now view and write on walls of events.
    - Uploaded photos are now 720px wide.

    This version contains fixes for the following bugs:
    - Could not comment on photos accessed from Notifications
    - Could not upload photos smaller than a certain size
    - No more than 2 notifications were highlighted as unread
    - Status updates appeared out of order in News Feed
    - Broken photo album links in News Feed
    - Birthdays view had months in wrong order
    - Last section of friend list was incomplete if you had fewer than 8 friends
    - Notes with non-ASCII text were cut off at the end
    Go my Facebook Fiends, feast upon your update. LOL.

      I mean, I guess there's no official iPad support, but the Facebook app is one of those nice rarities that looks just fine in fullscreen via FullForce. Give it a try. As far as I can tell nothing's broken!

      Still crap if you ask me, and worst of all is that they have not yet fixed the "error" message that appears when viewing some pictures. Also comments can't be added at times.

      Just too buggy to be enjoyable for an app I use daily.

      This does not work for me. I updated today and now I can't login. The reviews at the app store are all 1 stars due to this. I've read that if you have a jailbroken phone, facebook will not work.
