The new app is much better. Still not great but getting there. I thought I was going nuts but I saw a decent battery drain after installing it. I probably am going nuts but not because of this. I just saw this post from HTC on FB: Hi folks, a number of you have commented on seeing a battery drain on your device since installing the new Facebook for Android app. We have identified the bug that is causing this battery drain and are working on a fix now. As soon as the patch is ready, we will push out an update. Thanks for the quick feedback and for your patience as we get this fixed! Which means Verizon will push this to us sometime next year!
