- Added the ability to share external links from a web view
- Added new design for Profile and Group Walls
- Improved the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site

In addition to the new features, here is the list of the improvements and bug fixes that are also included in Facebook version 3.5:

- Improved Notifications speed
- Fixed a number of Chat bugs
- Made it easier to select filters in News Feed
- Fixed a bug with the Notifications bar disappearing
- Fixed a number of Photos bugs
- Improved performance and stability overall

I already bought my iPad and use it with my Android phone, they're both great, so no hate. But they seriously need an iPad app!! The best facebook App out there is Friendly and it's total POS!! I would use the site, but it's not worth signing in and out on my computer everytime. Lamee. WE NEED ONE NOW! That one that leaked was great, get it out soon.

No complaints this way i like the update. I had problems with lag with the last version but once i restored my iPod removing cydia it ran smooth lol. I guess Facebook does not like jailbroken idevices.

Maybe something wrong with your battery? I noticed when I had the iphone 3g as it got older it seemed to drain quicker. Even after re installing ios it would not matter.
