One of the biggest gripes with the Facebook apps, especially on iOS, was it’s slow performance. Pictures barely loaded, the news feed was laggy and unreliable, and comments could barely be loaded, all because things were rendered using HTML 5. Facebook has attempted to remedy the aforementioned issues today with version 5.0 of the Facebook application on iOS. The update today brings a huge performance enhancement as Facebook has rebuilt the app from the ground up and even added in some additional features like Timeline on the iPad, banners to show when new posts and comments are available, faster loading of Photos, and smoother scrolling.
The update is available now on the iPhone and iPad and you can find it in the App Store.
