Facebook today announced version 2.0 of its Android application, which is a major rewrite of the underlying code. This new version removes HTML5 and WebViews and instead uses native Android code so that it runs faster. According to Facebook, actions such as launching the app, refreshing the timeline, and opening photos is twice as fast as before. The new app also adds a few new features, such as the ability to scroll through photo albums without leaving the timeline. and instantly repopulating the timeline with new content as it arrives. The application is a free download from the Google Play Store. It should become available later today.
