Facebook today made available a new program that will let Android device users test beta versions of the main Facebook application before they are released. To start, Facebook will use feedback from the beta testers to root out bugs and other problems in pre-release versions of the app. Facebook may one day use the beta program to test new features before they are released to all users. The program requires that interested testers opt into a specific Google Group, which is required by Google, to become a beta tester. The first beta version of Facebook for Android will be available today. Facebook runs a similar program with Windows Phone, and lets beta testers sample the app before it is pushed to a wider batch of users.

I hope this will in turn lead to a better overall Facebook experience on Android... I absolutely HATE! the current app right now so I just use the browser, it just got to a point where it was just unacceptable so many glitches with the current app. The App alone gave Android phones a bad rap with how unreliable it is.
Only problem I encounter with the Facebook app for android is the news feed most recent or popular order. I keep mine on most recent but it changes back to most popular by itself, still showing that is on most recent.
