Facebook for Android gets a small, but welcome update
The Facebook apps for Android and iOS aren't exactly what we'd call a great experience. Sometimes, they can be so slow and laggy that the mobile website seems blazing-fast in comparison. Other times, they simply won't work, causing you to completely restart the program to get it going again. Thankfully, the iOS version of Facebook was recently rewritten, which drastically improved its reliability and performance. However, the Android version of the app is yet to undergo such a treatment, meaning that its performance remains sub-par for the time being.

While users are still waiting for this long-anticipated update, though, they have just been blessed with another, smaller update for the current app, bringing it to version 1.9.11. This "maintenance" update should improve the speed when tagging photos and organizing albums. In addition, it seems that some users who have been using "certain languages" were at times unable to upload photos using the app. This should now be fixed.

Now, we don't really expect all of this to bring any substantial improvement to the overall performance of the app, but it's a start, right? Let's just hope that Facebook will be quick to reach the finish line and deliver the reworked app to its super-social users soon.
