App of the Day: Facebook 3.5 (iOS)

Big update to fight Google+ update

| Apps News | Posted: Sep 7, 2011 8:40 pm

Our App of the Day today is Facebook 3.5 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 3.0 or later.


Facebook pushed out a pretty major update to its iPhone app yesterday (yes, we know - still no native iPad app... boo!). The update was pushed out just after an update for Google+ was released. Strange timing or is it Facebook fighting back?


The new update is a good one with many changes such as the ability to tag friends and places in posts, the ability to share external links from a web view and much improved group and profile wall designs.


Facebook for iPhone makes it easy to stay connected and share information with friends. Use your iPhone to start a conversation with Facebook Chat, check your friends' latest photos and status updates, look up a phone number, or upload your own mobile photos to Facebook while on the go.
