Facebook just released an update for their iOS app that’s made chatting and photo uploading an easier task. Built from the ground up using HTML5, the app promises to give the user a faster and more satisfying experience.
Users can now swipe left anywhere in the app to see who’s online start chatting away. There is also an option to edit your favorites list to add the people you message the most to the top of the list. Other noticeable features are the ability to upload multiple pictures, as well as photo editing via cropping and adding any of the 14 filters included in the new photo editor. Facebook Gifts is also said to be included in the update but we can’t seem to find it — and it appears to remain a US-only feature.
Since we just started using the update, we will have to get back to you if we like it or not. But offhand, we noticed you still can’t share posts, leave conversations in group chats, or tag contacts using @ method. You’ll still have to use your browser to do that.
