RIM Updates Facebook Beta to Version 1.9
Research In Motion today provided an update to its Facebook application for the BlackBerry platform. Registered users of RIM's BlackBerry Beta Zone can download Facebook 1.9, which offers a number of new features. The biggest improvement is the addition of a dedicated inbox for Facebook messages. Users can retrieve Facebook emails from a separate inbox placed on the home screen or from the Facebook app itself. Facebook 1.9 also adds a better search tool for finding friends and pages, and also now integrates with Universal Search in BlackBerry 6. BlackBerry 1.9 also has a refreshed friends list and a refreshed navigation bar. The beta is free to testers, and RIM asks beta testers to provide feedback before offering the software to the general public.
