Facebook has finally released an updated Android app, something that has been sorely needed for a long time. The new app, similar to the updated iPhone app, ditches HTML5 in favor of native code, which is capable of running much quicker on the devices. All this culminates into a faster and better user experience.




Zuckerberg has even admitted that going the HTML5 route was a terrible decision. "The biggest mistake we've made as a company is betting on HTML5 over native," Zuckerberg said in September. At least they have admitted the problem and now fixed it on the two major mobile platforms.


The new Facebook app will be available on the Google Play Store later today, though no specific release time was given.
