  • 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.

      Finally! As much as I love the app in it's current state, it definitely needed a makeover and some new touches. Can't wait!

      With apple, it ranges from a few weeks to two or three millennia.

      Apple will say that they already have an app for uploading videos in the iPhone and deny it lol

      I just thought I would check the appstore while I was sitting at work reading this and I saw I had a badge for an update. Thought it would be this but it was only BeeJive IM.
