Today Facebook finally released the much-anticipated update to its iPhone and iPad app, adding noticeable speed improvements and easier photo uploads.
We were sceptical at first, but after a few minutes of use we were pleasantly surprised by the supercharged app.
Scrolling through the News Feed is much smoother than before, and photo uploads take no time at all.
Another difference is in the structure of the News Feed. When people “Like” or add comments to status updates, they will show up in real time, eliminating the need to refresh the post to view new comments and Likes.
You can get the update for your iPhone and iPad right here.
The News Feed has received a very minor visual update. Now posts are separated more distinctly and the Status, Photo, and Check In buttons are slightly different.
Most importantly, scrolling through photos felt significantly faster. Pictures loaded almost instantaneously.
Photos look different too. There is now a minimal look and feel to photos and it is easier to like them.
The News Feed for iPad has been dramatically updated to separate posts and give easy access to messages.
