Facebook SDK for Android reaches 3.0 beta

Facebook SDK for Android reaches 3.0 beta, hopefully the native Android app isn't too far behind

Facebook have announced they've updated the Android SDK bringing it to beta 3.0. Facebook's new changes have been called the "biggest overhaul" yet, which are mostly aimed toward making it easier and quicker to develop Android apps which work with Facebook.

The social network are also trying to make third-party interfaces more consistant, offering new native UI control packs built-in caching in order to make the whole experience faster. Developers will also now receive the ability to integrate friend tagging and calling up nearby places. New login controls to manage authentication are said to help apps call up your Facebook identities and hold onto them, without you having to authenticate more than a few times.


Hopefully this means we see the native Facebook for Android application soon, like iOS receives a few weeks ago.
