The old version of Facebook for Android, was shit. Let's be honest. It had many issues which made it a nightmare sometimes. Facebook have at last announced on their blog that they are releasing a whole new version today. We reported on a leaked version yesterday.
The new app has a whole new design. Photos and albums they say will load 2x faster than the previous version. Messages and notifications now stay at the top so you can stay on top of the latest. You can quickly access the main parts of the app by simply swiping from the left to reveal a menu. It looks like an import of the iPhone version with a few tweaks here and there.
The app is going live as we speak, if it is not available for you yet just be patient. They say it's on the way!
