  • Facebook.app hits 3.0 - Live Now!

    We knew it was coming, and here it is!

    Go grab Facebook.app's update from the AppStore now. It's at 3.0, now, and with a slew of solid updates.

    Video uploading works great, and you can even trim videos from your Camera Library from within the Facebook app. I uploaded a 20 second video extremely fast, and it showed up on my wall immediately. I couldn't view the actual video in Facebook.app until I restarted the app.

    Here's something nice - when trying to view a video, I got the following alert:

    Looks like Facebook will soon allow us to watch uploaded videos straight from the iPhone (they've previously been using Flash to show their video - which as we allllllll know doesn't work on the iPhone). Facebook's arch-nemesis Google has top dawg status on the "video on iPhone market", since YouTube.app is included stock with every iPhone sold. It was only expected Facebook would want a piece of that pie, so I'm interested to see how they decide to jump on that wagon.

    The new homepage of the app will take some getting used to, as I'm spoiled having all my links on the first page from the previous revs. I think this will actually make more sense, after playing with it the past half hour or so, but I still think swiping left/right to get between the various sections would be a nice addition. Or some gesture... swiping deletes right now, which is more valuable.

    The update is free (the APP is free), so pick it up now!

    thanks to everyone who sent this in

      I downloaded it on the T this morning, and tried to take a picture of the Apple Store where I bought Snow Leopard... and of course it was janky. Wouldn't upload, in 3G OR WiFi. Now - again, of course - it works fine. So I just have my memories of the non-line not queued up around the block waiting for the store to open...

      For some reason, my iPhone doesn't seem to be notifying me of updated apps that often anymore. It didn't show there was a Facebook update, but when I searched for Facebook, I could install it and then it updated. Any ideas?
      That's happened to me, you have to uninstall EVERY app on the iPhone and reinstall, if that doesn't work, you will have to restore.

      I think reinstalling your facebook application will help. If it still crashes, then you should upgrade your operating system and then try reinstalling again.

      the new facebook is so sweet, one small complaint though, on the main page if you don't have any bookmarks it still shows the bookmark page

      Anyone know if it is (will be?) possible to upload vids from Cycorder on a 2g/3g device that doesn't have native video support like the 3gs?

      I just found the update for this app a few minutes ago. I like this version better then the old one it's laid out a lot better.

      At first I thought it was only released for U.S...

      You will have to search for it as it shows up as an app you don't have installed (even if you have)

      The new update is a lot better. This version is a lot faster, smoother and user friendly. Not too bothered about the visual appearance.

      When i first installed it it completely screwed my iphone up, but i deleted it, rebooted and reinstalled it and now everything is working perfectly.
