    Facebook’s New, Ultra Fast iOS App Update is Here



    Mike Isaac at All Things D reports today that Facebook has finally completed work on its major revamp of its much-maligned iOS app, which hits the App Store today.

    “People have different expectations when it comes to using Facebook for iOS,” Mick Johnson, Facebook iOS mobile product manager told All Things D today. “They expect a level of performance and speed that just wasn’t there.”
    Johnson also told All Things D that the previously painfully slow user experiences of scrolling through the feed, photos and loading the app has been made much, much faster. Johnson went on to explain that the reason the much-needed update took so long to arrive was because it had to be rewritten pretty much from the ground up, mainly because the current app is largely HTML5-based, and had to be changed to Objective-C programming language, in order to make better use of the iPhone 5 hardware.

    I can attest that it IS much faster (well, on my iPhone anyway...). I admit - I was getting tired of the "official" Facebook app. Glad they improved it.

    Still slow on ipad1 plus full of annoying 'suggestions' of games and pages I may like. I am not impressed.

    This one is even much slower and uglier than the previous one. How can I downgrade to the previous version?

    Really? Mine is significantly faster.

    Only way to downgrade is to restore from backup.
