Facebook for iOS and Android got a nice update today, bringing the ability to share posts directly from the timeline — as we reported yesterday — along with some improvements to photo sharing and tagging.
While the Android app is still in serious need of performance improvements, it’s steadily gaining the features it needs to bring it on par with its iOS counterpart. Both apps now offer the much-requested “Share” feature that debuted yesterday on the mobile web version of Facebook, too. What’s interesting is that certain posts have yet to have the functionality enabled, but it seems arbitrary which posts are shareable and which aren not.
Other features include the ability to create a new photo album on the way to posting a series of photos, as well as major improvements to the way images are tagged. You can also tag friends directly in-line, instead of manually adding them to the end of each post.
