Facebook updates Android and iOS apps
posted by Scott H. / Aug 23, 2012, 12:26 PM
Android users see a smaller upgrade, but they’ve also been enjoying the enhanced speed for over a month, so you can’t accuse Facebook of giving Android the shaft. The update will allow users to create events right from their mobile device, to add photos and emoji to messages, and a new photo upload workflow that will speed up sharing of pics from your phone or tablet.
Facebook’s emphasis on speed is smart – one thing users want in their mobile experience is a total lack of lag or waiting. So for the many millions of you that use Facebook regularly on a mobile device, that experience should be much better than it was in months gone past.

One thing I've noticed with the Facebook app, is that after ALL THIS TIME, there is still NO ability to share someone else's posts. This seems like a no brainer, but Facebook has continued to neglect this functionality for no perceivable reason.

Updated on my GS2 (running official Samsung 4.0.4 ICS LPT FW, NOT rooted) earlier today, all it did throughout the day is crash, i hadnt even used it, i updated and left it, every time i took my phone out and unlocked it i found a 'FB app not responding' pop-up waiting for me to Wait or FC the app. The Facebook team just cant get it right, its back to FriendCaster app for me, it never crashes, has push notifications and a better UI that adapts to what network speeds you have.

I'm going to avoid it then if these reports of crashing are true. Some people are reporting it crashing on MobileSyrup as will. Too bad. I hear it allows you to post multiple pictures at once now. For those people who find the app crashing, have you tried restarting your phone?

Using iPhone 4, I am unable to change "Sort" in my news feed from "Top Stories" to "Most Recent." I can tap the "Sort" option and the selection menu will appear, but when I tap "Most Recent," nothing happens.

On my Galaxy Nexus since installing the update less than 24 hours ago, it has crashed more times than it's actually worked. And if I attempt to launch the app 3 times, at least 1 of those it will freeze and fail. Twice it froze bad enought I had to pull the battery and reboot my phone. Bookface once again, 'fixing' things that didn't necessarily NEED to be fixed. But still can't get it right...
