Facebook for Android is now faster and has better UI

Facebook for Android app has received a major update. Let me first list out the major features that are new to this release:

Better Photos and albums:

As you can see in the above picture, you can now see name tags on photos and zoon in/out. Photos load 2x faster than in previous version and you can easily share photos, edit captions and view comments on the go


Similar to desktop browser, message now appear on a layer on top of your current page. This means that you need not open a new page to view messages and closing the messages pop up will reveal the page you are currently on.

New menu

A new menu is added on the left hand side to quickly access news feed, messages, events, friends list etc. 

Other new features in this version are:

  1.  Navigate anywhere, fast: Get to your groups, apps, pages, and settings with a single press
  2. Search and you will discover: Look through friends, subscribers, apps, and pages
  3. Faster notifications: Get alerted in real time with new push notifications
  4. Games & Apps: Play games and access your favorite apps on the go
  5. Access to mobile timeline (If you already have a timeline)
  6. Access to friend lists and subscriptions
