    Facebook 3.0 For the iPhone Now Available

    Advertisement




    Nearly two weeks after submitting the app to Apple, Facebook’s totally revamped 3.0 application is finally live on the App Store, according to the app’s developer Joe Hewitt. You can download it now here. The store currently shows that the app is version 2.5, but if you click the Download button anyway you’ll get the new version.

    The new application brings a slew of new features, making it what may be the most useful app on the App Store (be sure to read this post) for our full review. Among the additions are Events, which have frustratingly been omitted from previous versions. Now you’ll be able to look up where your Events are, and you can also respond to them and see which of your friends are attending (for anyone who has ever had to boot up the web version of the site just to look up an Event address, this is a big deal. You can also post video directly to the site if you have an iPhone 3GS — a feature that will likely see the number of videos on Facebook increase dramatically.

    Cool. Installing now. Appears you have to delete FB if you have it already installed....

    WOW...nice upgrade!

    GaryF - I didn't uninstall it and it loaded fine!

    and agreed...VERY NICE UPGRADE!!!

    The 'Chat' feature seems to be unstable (atm)....other than that, everything looks nice and much more organized

    I updated it on my iPod Touch, it crashed the first time I tried to comment on someone's status. I shut the iPod down and restarted it and its been ok since....haven't tried the chat yet....will play with that later.

    So far I really like it. Push notifications would make it great I'm satisfied.

    Okay, I added several friends as favorites but when I try to rearrange their icons the app crashes when I try to save the changes...anyone else experience this?

    azstar - It doesn't crash (for me) when rearranging icons, but they don't seem to hold their place, every time I go back to that page, the icons are back in their stock location , also, the chat doesn't seem to work, I don't get the 'vibration' alert and my friends fall in and out of the convo

    Tip: If iTunes is still showing version 2.5 on your desktop, click the "Facebook" breadcrumb on the page's top navigation. Refreshing the Web page won't necessarily do the trick. On the iPhone, delete the Facebook application and download it anew from the App Store on your phone. Even if the app page does not say it's version 3.0, the new version should install.

    I hope the developers are working on getting the chat feature working.

    Is it me or is this new update still very buggy. Mine doesn't
    refresh like it should. Sometimes when I try to post comments
    it closes out to the homescreen. Most of the time. I have to
    post a comment more than 3 times in order for it to actually
    show up. I really hope they're working on an update to fix the
    bug issues because I really like the interface. I find myself
    using the mobile site more just to do some of the things the app
    should.
