  • Facebook for iPhone - Major Updates in v3.0


    Facebook.app is getting some much needed updates and a fresh look very soon. The iPhone app's developer (Joe Hewitt) tweeted he had uploaded the 3.0 version of Facebook.app to the AppStore for approval Sunday, and is even more excited for 3.1, which he's working on now.



    It's got a ton of improvements (hence the solid jump in versioning to a full 3.0), one nice feature being video upload from the 3GS (expect Facebook video uploads to triple pretty soon).

    The home screen is completely redone, and hopefully its a bit more stable - although I use Facebook.app often, its got some weird quirks I can't figure out.

    Looking forward to the upcoming updates, Joe and team.

    Thanks, JazJon, for the tip. TechCrunch.

      Of course, once I buy an app to upload videos to facebook (videoup) they come out with an update with video upload capability. Oh well. Looking forward to the new version.

      I hate this thread. When I saw the title and picture, I almost had a heart attack jumping onto AppStore, then dying a bit inside realizing that they didn't come out with it yet. Thanks so much. =_=

      My only quirk is when you try to chat with someone and go to read another part of the app your chat will act like you logged out or it wont allow people to send to you or vice versa as if you are no longer on the facebook app.

      Anyone else? Does this to me all the time

      You can upload videos by emailing the email address FB gives you to upload pictures via email. For some odd reason, a forwarded email won't work, but a newly created email will.
