  • Facebook 5.2 for iOS Released With Some Much-Needed Features


    Following Facebook’s iOS application update to version 5.1 less than two weeks ago, Facebook has rolled out an additional update to version 5.2 today that adds some new features to the application.

    The big focus on this update was certainly bringing the ability to share stories from your news feed on a mobile device. This feature has been requested by users for a long time now, and Facebook has finally delivered the goods. Now when you see a story you find interesting, you will see a new Share link, similarly to the desktop version of the Web site, that you can tap to re-post the story to all of your friends:



    According to the change log that shows up from the App Store, the update also brings us Emojis in Facebook messages – those little smiley faces that everyone just loves using to express themselves, the ability to tag your friends in any post, comment, or photo, and finally the ability to sort your news feed using filters.

    The problem that plagued many users trying to log into Facebook 5.1 doesn’t appear to be present in Facebook 5.2. That being said, it’s safe to download. To download the update, you can head over the App Store and visit the Updates tab, or you can download the application for free from this link.

      SOLVED!!

      Hey I've had exactly the same problem as everyone else but have sorted it. I don't know what is causing the exact issue, whether Jailbroken or not, although know for sure that on MY iPhone4S running 5.1.1 if I use Facebook 5.1 it crashes ONLY on the news feed and when using Facebook 5.2 it just crashes and won;t even allow me to login. I managed to obtain a copy of Facebook 5.0.1 online and had the same issues.

      After hours of searching I have managed to obtain a copy of Facebook 5.0.0 and GUARANTEE that it will work without crashes. I reckon that in the 5.0.1 and later updates, Facebook must have changed something to work differently which has caused nothing but trouble.

      I am happy to share the link and have it stored in my Dropbox account by following this link --> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kkb98wu64in0jgk/4UMjfvUwD6. What I would appreciate for this is people to use this link here to sign up for Dropbox under an email account so I can get more space...--> http://db.tt/rROKgde . I really appreciate it!

      Please comment to let me know if it worked for you but I'm positive it will. Just make sure you delete the existing app off your phone AND your iTunes on your computer, then download the Facebook 5.0.0 ipa, double click to add to iTunes then sync your device.

      Glad I could help! Let's hope Facebook sort things out, what a nightmare hey!

      i mean iPhone 5 on stock iOS 6.0 =)

      and i'm not saying it will crash on ALL jb'd devices, i'm saying that it will ONLY crash on a jb'd device. sounds like that add app's mobile substrate extension is the source.

      I just updated last night and I haven't encountered any errors. Let's hope it stays that way.

      Do u guys get the stupid ads from the MMi app on your jailbroken home screen? I figured out how to stop them with a bit of tinkering.

      It works fine on iOS 6.0.1 jailbroken. Haven't had any issue of crashing or anything else.

      It probably crashes on some devices running iOS 5.1.1 because they are making more apps more compatible with the newer iOS firmware which means some apps will either crash or you won't be able to install until I upgrade to iOS 6.

      It works fine on jailbroken devices, just not on those that use wares.

      Serves them right.

      This thread is full of people who say it doesn't work. Is there one single person who has a problem that isn't a thief?

      Jailbreaking is not the problem, being scum is.

      in a world where everyone has identical and equal access to opportunities & resources, i would tend to agree with you. but in this world, the line dividing scum & non-scum(?) is a little less defined...

      just my opinion
