Facebook testing bottom menu for iOS, Android apps
0. phoneArena 10 Jul 2013, 17:58 posted on
Facebook is looking to make navigating its iOS and Android app a little bit easier; some users of the app are reporting that a new navigation bar has popped up on the bottom of the screen. Not all users are seeing the new navigation bar which is typical of how the Social Network handles beta tests. In addition to the addition of the bottom menu to the app, the current side navigation panel is no more with this version of the Facebook app...

It's great that Facebook is adding new features and changing the interface a bit, but how about fixing the damn bugs and connectivity issues first? I can barely go 3 minutes in WiFi before it displays 'No a internet Connection.'

Good. One of the best things about Windows Phone is that all the menus and things go up from the bottom, so much more intuitive and comfortable. IOS is so bass-ackward having to reach to the top of the tiny screen on the uncomfortable device to navigate and interact.

Zuckrboy is worried that G+ is eating half of fb's ass, Already with 500 million active users. Therefor comes the fb rehaul. Thanks G+

I have it for iOS and I think its a step back. Facebook was one of the first apps (if not the first) to use the slide panel menu which we now see in many apps like YouTube or Gmail. This just takes screen space and I don't get the inconsistency of the android version having no labels under the icons while iOS does (prefer it doesn't). Overall, it's not horrible, but the old UI was more convenient.
