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