Facebook has updated its app for Android devices, bringing some unique cosmetic changes as well as some new features and improvements. Users can now play back H.264 video from within the Facebook app itself. The new version also supports Facebook events, which were previously missing from the mobile app. The new front page has been redesigned. Android users will now see a "photo reel" near the bottom of the screen, populated with recent photo uploads from friends. The notification bar is now a draggable drawer that offers more extensive notifications. It is also easier to respond to friend requests and easier to open shared Web links from the Facebook app.

Mark Zuckerberg finally taking Android seriously

Supposedly Mark Zuckerberg just recently dropped the iPhone in favor of Android. rg-goes-android/

I wonder if the update has anything to do with that.

Previously, he had mostly negative comments about Android not being a serious contender in the smartphone game. Goes to show you how much things can change in a few short years.
Android is just better all around in my opnion. I know I Phone has more apps but just give them time and the apps will come in waves. Then Android will be more powerful then I Phone and we will rule!!
