Facebook 5.0 For iPhone And iPad Released, Brings Serious Speed Improvements And Ditches HTML5 For Good!

For a long time Facebook users have been complaining about how Facebook app is so slow and laggy, I am one of users who hated to use Facebook app because it is very slow and I really hated the new time-line at Facebook app, anyway it seems that the wait is over as today Facebook has just announced releasing anew rebuilt Facebook app for iPhone/iPad and iPod Touch which said it is twice faster than before and gives you more features that users have been waiting for more than three months..

Finally the new rebuilt Facebook app doesn't made by HTML 5 but the developers used Objective-C and now has an enhanced photos feed, built-in Messenger support, and several other performance improvements…

Facebook's Mick Johnson explains the update:

"Today we're announcing an update to the Facebook app for iPhone and iPad that makes keeping up with friends faster and easier. Facebook 5.0 for iOS is twice as fast as the previous version when launching the app, scrolling through news feed and opening photos in feed.

We've rebuilt the app from the ground up, so now the app opens much faster and your news feed and notifications load right when you open Facebook.

As you scroll down your news feed, all your friends' stories appear faster than ever. A banner lets you know when new stories come in, and you can tap once to immediately see the latest updates."

Of course there is no new design at the Facebook interface, you will just notice a high speed when using the Facebook app. So if you are looking for a high speed Facebook app I advice you to update to the newer version to see the huge improvements You can find it in the App Store, and obviously it's free.
