Yes, it’s true; The long awaited Facebook 1.7 has been released, bringing with it, beautiful OS 5.0 compatibility. So if you refused to update to the 5.0 OS because of the lack of facebook support, give it a shot and check it out Here.
Not only did facebook provide the new OS compatibility, but they also added quite a few more features to the mix.
- News Feed Support – The ability to set the News Feed as the landing page
- News Feed Filters – The ability to toggle between ‘News Feed, Status Updates, Photos & Links’
- Caching Improvements – The application uses the device memory more efficiently.
- Feed Pre-fetching – The user will not be required to wait while their Facebook Feeds are updated
- View Profile Menu Option – Clients may easily view their own profile by selecting ‘View my Profile’ from the menu. “
As a rule of thumb, I try not to write reviews on applications that I haven’t had a chance to test out myself. But I did get around to this one and I must say, the application has a very nice look to it.
Once you use it for the first time and it gets a chance to load all of your feeds and friends lists, it runs really smoothly.
Download it OTA from the blackberry website Here,
From the Facebook website Here,
Or alternately from the Blackberry App World.
