BlackBerry updates its Facebook app for BB10 with News-feed sorting, Emoji support, and more

Posted: , by Luis D.

BlackBerry's Facebook app for BB10 (yes, BlackBerry's app, not the other way around) got an update to v10.4. The new additions should be welcomed by all fans of the social network. The list of updates starts with News-feed Sorting - arranging stories by "Most Recent" or "Top Stories" categories. It goes on with Emoji support, which lets you express your overwhelming emotions with silly emoticons. The Screen Reader is another new, photo-tagging related offering, while the Check-ins page now features a Map view - it shows a map of the location you are checking in from.


And that's about it! As always, the app is free, and can be downloaded from BlackBerry world, or simply updated on your 'Berry.


Download: BlackBerry 10

Don't be such an idiot. Millions of people own a BlackBerry. Troll elsewhere.

See comment #4. And if you're going to bash something on a site that is predominantly in the English language, then you should take the time to learn the English language first.

This update for BB10. That has a market share extremely low, even if it compared to BBOS

i'm updating mines now. I have a Z30 and used to have a Z10, I also have a Nexus 5. I like the Nexus but the Z30 is still my go to phone. I understand all of the Blackberry hate that goes on, its easier for people to pile on thats all. Being as though their market share is so low i'm almost sure that the haters haven't owned a BB10 device

I really love the bb10 OS, I just wish they would've released it earlier and more polished at launch. It's all about first impressions these days.

right its a great OS it makes me mad that nobody knows how good it is. But today its not about whats good or bad, if you advertise well enough you can get ahead.

True. One thing that BlackBerry needs is a better marketing team. Another thing that seems to make or break an OS is app quantity. The more apps a platform has, the more consumers seem to want your product, whether the OS is good or not. BB10 is a great OS, but lots of consumers tend to stay away due to the perceived app gap, not even knowing that BB10 devices are able to download Android APK's over the air and run Android apps.
