Facebook today announced a brand new version of its iPhone/iPad application. Facebook claims that Facebook 5.0 for iOS performs twice as fast as the previous version, as it relies on native iOS code rather than HTML5. Facebook says the app itself should open faster, news feeds should refresh faster, notifications should appear quicker, and photos should open faster. Facebook also added some new double-tap features for the newsfeed and a swipe-down-to-close feature in the photo gallery. Facebook 5.0 for iOS is a free download from the App Store.

Just updated

a hell of a lot smoother. The previous version was really bad and painfully slow to scroll through.
thats awesome to hear. it seemed like it should have been a really fast, smooth application but it wasn't. This will pretty much just help out the fangirls to post more mirror pics of themselves, and post them faster.
