    Does it still take 10 seconds to load one page?

  • Jon

    This app is still garbage – it still takes FOREVER to load a page or images. It also still force closes half the time. It blows me away that a company with the resources of facebook can’t produce descent products.

  • Mathieu

    It’s getting a little bit better.
    But, seriously, Facebook is supposed to be one of the most used services on mobile devices in the world and the Facebook app for Android is still pretty bad.
    It’s like they do not listen to what Google is telling developers to do.

    People, are you using FB on Wi-Fi or on 3G? i would do speed test in both scenarios.

  • Jon

    ^^^ both connection methods produce the same level of suck. It’s not the connection speed, it’s the apps rendering speed, or lack there of.

    When will we see a Tablet/honeycomb FB app?

  • Binku

    Out from all those android apps, only facebook application is soooooooooo sloooooooooow. Mark is an a*****e or android n00b.

    i got this last night on xperia arc. before the update chat was unreliable, white screening and lag all the time. on first launch with update it did white screen for 5 minutes, but after that, it’s been very snappy and notifications are working noticeably better. maybe i can finally delete the fb messenger app.

    FCs on my tablet. Thankfully TweetDeck and the new Messenger covers most of my FB needs anyway. Probably will hold off updating on phone.

    This s**t doesn’t work. Never had a problem until now. Thanks assholes

    It doesn’t work on my recently upgraded Xperia X10 Android 2.3.3. I had to install it.

  • Jeff Norden

    I meant to type uninstall.

  • Jay

    You can install it from market on honeycomb devices as of this update

  • Mark

    Here’s what I notice so far: App activates GPS when opened. No way to turn this off or stop it from accessing my location. Then after I close the FB app GPS keeps turning on every few seconds/minutes. Not only the worst battery drain possible but the worst violation of privacy, and coming from FB that’s pretty damn bad.

    I don’t have a problem with Facebook on my phone. I don’t have it installed. 🙂 I use Google+ instead.
