Facebook 3.1.1 for iPhone causing more problems for users?

Facebook 3.1.1 for iPhone causing more problems for users?
You’d all think that the latest version of the Facebook app for the iPhone would seemingly bring some much needed joy to users? Sure it does add items such as push notification to the mix so you’ll be informed of all the new stuff happening. Unfortunately, some users are voicing their poor experience with the social networking app. For starters, the long awaited push notification doesn’t work most of the time according to some users – usually there’s an alert sound accompanying it, but sometimes it’s absent.

There are even other problems with it such as users getting an “error” message whenever they’re commenting on a picture.  You’d think with the release of version 3.1.1 that all the new features would be ironed out to provide a seamless experience right? Well, the scenario is proving to be a little different with many users on the fence with the app – it’s giving them more headaches than anything else. We’d probably expect these issues to be addressed soon with yet another minor update.

Hmm, the Facebook app on the Droid works great. I guess the iPhone DOESN'T have an app for that!

I can't speak for all platforms but it seems like facebook does a poor job of distributing applications. I can certainly say that the facebook app on the pre is horrible. Although I am a big fan of it mobile site... its much better than its app.

here here... You would think their mobile apps would be better. Especially on the iphone where the OS is SO standardized.

I dont even like the facebook app on my Eris. I wish it was easier to get to the actual facebook page from the FB app.
