Update: The update is now available for download off of the Android Market. It looks and feels really nice, although scrolling seems slower than usual. There’s still no support for tablets.
Facebook are rolling out a new version of their Android application “Facebook for Android” later today according to a blog post on their site. The application looks exactly the same as the current mobile version of the Facebook website, so if you’re familiar with that you know what you’re in for. The update brings better photo viewing functionality with the ability to show tags, comments and likes much easier — photos and albums are said to load twice as fast as well. Messaging and notifications can be accessed from almost anywhere in the app on the top menu and they drop down over whatever you’re currently viewing so you can reply to messages straight away. The last major difference is that the menu is now on the left hand side and slides out whenever you press on it. The menu shows all your lists, favourites and more — pretty much whatever is on the left menu on your desktop Facebook.
Keep an eye out on the Android Market for the update!
