    If you communicate a lot with your Facebook friends on your iPhone or iPad, then chances are that you have downloaded and installed the official Facebook Messenger application. Now, the app has been updated to version 5.0 and it comes with new features that are quite important. The biggest update is perhaps the ability to exchange video messages from your library with other Messenger users as you could only share photos and short voice recordings using the app before. Here’s the full changelog of the Facebook Messenger 5.0 iOS app:

    So, as we can see, easier photo sharing, improvements to the search feature, a tweaked user interface making it easier to send photos and voice messages have made their way to the updated app. Also, Facebook Messenger now reduces friction when sharing photos with fewer taps, and you don’t even have to leave the messaging interface. Another new useful feature is the ability to tap and hold on a sticker received in a chat to quickly download the whole sticker pack to your iPhone or iPad.

    Its part of FBs plan to remove the chat in their app and make facebook messenger used more. I have no problems with this though, I actually want to try out their app.

    They say you can use it on iPad but it is really an app for iPhone.

    I'm not fond of using iPhone apps for iPads............

    I sure wish they make this an app for the iPad as I would find it faster to use FBM rather than FB.
