    Default Facebook Finally Updates Embarrassingly Slow iOS App


    On Thursday, Facebook (finally) updated its slow, freeze-happy, and universally panned iOS app. And based on my first ten minutes of interaction with the updated app, Facebook has succeeded at delivering an improved user experience for all social media users on the iOS platform.

    In June, MMi reported that 21,000 of the 38,000 people who had reviewed the iOS Facebook app as of that time, gave the app just one star. But given the noticeable improvements delivered today, there's a good chance that many subsequent user ratings will be more favorable.

    "We've rebuilt the app so its faster and easier to use," the company says of version 5.0. Among the touted improvements are:

    * Scrolling through news feed is faster than ever
    * New banner lets you tap to quickly see more stories no need to refresh
    * Photos open fast and close with one downward swipe
    * Instant access to your notifications

    The free 7.3-megabyte download is now up for grabs at the iOS App Store and is friendly with all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches running iOS 4.3 or later.

    Nitrous tweak has made Facebook app run faster and smoother for me already.



    EDIT: v5.0 is much better

    From safari or a web app yes, not from mobile app from AppStore...it's only a so and so is "with-so and so" you can't just tag someone in a status. Pictures yes. Not statuses.

    Does Nitrous work well with the Chrome browser? I heard some people were having bugs when Nitrous was released but I'm sure it is better now but since it was moved to another source I haven't checked it out.

    Is the version on BigBoss the latest or is there another on a different source?

    Nitrous in BigBoss is the latest version and the only Nitrous. For 99 cents it's worth it
