    Sorry, its version 1.3.0!! Check it out. Looks like it just released. Different start page and looks like they took away "poke" notifications.

    This version stays running in the background. Wonder if that will effect battery life much?

    Just downloaded it, I like it. It's getting closer to the iPhone app, at least.

    Maybe by running in the background, the notifications will show up quicker.

    the in app notifications still link to the website, which actually, really sucks. Other than that, not a lot of changes except for the home screen/launch screen.

    inching closer to how well the iPhone app is done, but we are still a ways off.

    a step closer but still far from what it should be. have to get used to this new layout

    I don't like this "running in the background as a service" business... I don't have notifications turned on, so it should be constantly running. :(

    Yep, still relies heavily on the browser for notifications. If you go into settings, they only give you options to be notified for friend requests and messages. Why aren't wall posts and comments part of the notifications?

    And why did they take away "pokes"?!?! I wish the iPhone version of this app would just be carried over to the Android platform.

    very much agreed. how hard can it be to port?

    Looking past the UI changes I'm disappointed, notifications still stink (I want wall posts and comments!)

    It's not as good as the iPhone version but it's not bad. The iPhone version was actually slower.

    I'm concerned about the fact that it's always running. I noticed it specifically and came here to see if you guys were discussing it (and you were).

    Something to keep an eye on the next few days. Definitely showing up as the top "partial wake" application right now but I haven't noticed additional battery drain.

    I've noticed a fair few god improvements. The messages correctly display all messages now. Also the Events section is a lot more functional. Also could we even see friend requests before? I didn't think we could before the update? I also think there is a slight improvement on photo loading times.

    Obviously notifications still needs to be updated to stay in app. But at least it's obvious they are still working on it, albeit a bit slow...

    The main improvement for me is speed. Changing views is much quicker than the previous version.

    Well, it's definitely eating up my battery. I noticed a big difference overnight. I emailed the developer (I don't know if it will help).

    This is a major issue that definitely needs fixed. Everyone should contact them about this problem.

    It is still a garbage app compared to the Blackberry version. I am still horribly letdown by this app. All they did was change the frontpage really. I hate having to access teh web to look at stuff, i hate needing to get an email, then go to the website to see replies. BB does it 100x better. As soon as someone posts/comments/whatever, i get an alert, like RIGHT THEN AND THERE, and i click that and go right to the post, no web involved, no need to fill my box with emails. So much better and easier. And i acutally GOT alerts. This thing NEVER gives me alerts.

    They really need a better facebook client. Cause i am horribly let down by this one

    It really ate my battery up fast kept my phone awake for 6.5 hours and nearly killed the battery from full charge. I too sent an email to the developer.

    Mine was "awake" after installation with notifications enabled or disabled and did notice the battery dropping fast. After logging out of the app, then back in it's no longer doing it.

    Not using the contacts sync feature either, doesn't seem to work as well as HTC's.

    About damn time they updated it, its definitely better than before, but still far from perfect. Hopefully the next update will allow us to view posts posted by facebook applications on profile walls
