Facebook for Android 3.4 brings better navigation, improvements to Home launcher

Facebook for Android has just received a nice wallop of an update, bringing new features from the beta version to the main app.

Visually, Facebook 3.4 is unchanged from its previous versions, but you can now swipe to open the navigation bar on the left and chat list on the right. Navigation feels much more natural this way, and brings the app kicking and screaming into a more modern design language.

You can also share news stories in private messages and  store the app on an SD card if you’re running Gingerbread or below.

Finally, Facebook has adorned its Home launcher, which is still only available on a handful of older devices, with the ability to create folders in the app drawer. Yes, we know, revolutionary. But it’s a step in the right direction, and certainly a long-requested feature.

Of course, if you want to stay on the cutting edge, you can always join the ongoing Facebook for Android beta program, which will net new features before they’re consolidated in the main app.
