Facebook 3.0 for iPhone released

John Burke

After a couple of weeks of waiting in the iTunes app store approval queue, the 3rd major update of the popular Facebook for iPhone [iTunes Link] 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.
