Facebook’s Huge New Mobile Revamp Looks Awesome

MOBILE TIMELINE ellis hamburger

Hot on the heels of Facebook’s global timeline rollout today, Facebook announced the availability of Timeline for Android and iPhone.

Timeline isn’t available inside the Facebook app for iPhone quite yet, but head to m.facebook.com to check it out.

This is assuming you’ve already set up Timeline on your desktop computer using these instructions.

It’s fully touch-enabled, which means it’s easy to swipe through interests, pictures, and more.

We spoke with Joey Flynn (pictured), the designer behind mobile Timeline, in mid November.

Flynn told us about the process behind creating Timeline. It has been in the works for about a year, he said, but the seeds of Timeline have been floating around the office for a while.

“Do we do the timeline horizontally or vertically?” Flynn said. The design team underwent dozens of trials to figure out exactly how Timeline would work best.

Check out our walkthrough of the new app >
