After a couple of weeks of waiting in the iTunes app store approval queue, the 3rd major update of the popular Facebook for iPhone
] application has been released. Joe Hewitt
, the developer of the app, has been working on it for quite some time and submitted it for review
on 8/16. If you're still seeing 2.5 in the app store
, Joe suggests deleting the app from your phone and reinstalling it -- it will be 3.0.
The new version includes some of the most requested features including:
- Better news feed with direct links to comments
- Ability to "Like" posts
- RSVP to events
- Create/upload photos to albums
- Write/edit notes
- Customizable home screen
- Improved photo viewing with zoom
- Better notifications
Hewitt is already working on the next release, version 3.1, which is rumored to focus on adding Push Notifications.
