Facebook 3.0 screenshots

Screenshots of Facebook for iPhone 3.0 have been released by Joe Hewitt, the application's developer, according to appadvice. The application allows users to manage their Facebook account from their iPhone or iPod touch. The latest version offers a remodeled News Feed, matching it with the user's online preferences to eliminate posts from hidden accounts. The application adds the Like tool, featured on the traditional Facebook site, while allowing users to access Event pages.

Version 3.0 will also feature full access to Pages and the ability to create, upload, zoom and tag photographs and their respective albums. The update also includes a new home screen with nine default boxes that can be further customized.

The latest version does not add the anticipated Push notification service, but the service is expected to be added in v3.1. The upgrade also cannot play Facebook videos, but does include the ability to upload videos.

Facebook for iPhone 3.0 has reportedly been submitted for approval from the App Store review team.

    Thanks, but ...

    At the risk of sounding ungrateful, I'm bewildered at why it would take SO LONG for a quality Facebook app to emerge. The current version is just -- horrible.

    Taking a look at the myriad high-quality apps for Twitter, and noticing that tying together the most used, much more disparate services/third parties users would expect, only deepens the mystery.

    Maybe iPhone developers are too cool for Facebook, which is so last year, so no one is working on them. Meanwhile, Twitter being this year's fad, get's all the love from the developers.

    i thought

    the whole point of have a full working version of safari on the iphone is so you can browse real facebook?
    why would you want an app for such a thing?

    It makes it easier to do it with an app designed for the iPhone screen, rather than a web page that you have to scroll around on, zoom in and zoom out, etc.
