Personally Im a bit dissapointed in the UI.

Pre-Release screenshots that where posted looked really nice

But this is what the released version looks like :(

true, it's not as pretty as they suggested, but at least it's not as crippled as it was before (finally, access to Pages)

+1!! I totally agree - I wanted that shiny blue UI. Instead, we get dumped with an ugly "shiny white" :( Oh well... At least it's better than all the previous versions...
Also, I would like to see speed improvements - it lags when rotating landscape, and clicking is laggy. The built in browser is laggy too :(

Oh well...

I like it, but still no push? How will I know when I've been poked?! Seriously though, would like some push.

Just downloaded it then. I've been looking forward to this, it's one of my most used apps.

The link I posted should link to the new one. iTunes came up with 2.5 for me as well, but clicking on the main Facebook title refreshed it to 3.0.

It isn't coming up as an update in the Australian store but if you search it, then install it, it will detect that it's an update and you'll get the new version (which is what I did).

Weird. It works if I follow that link, but it didn't show up in updates and came up as 2.5 in the App Store on the phone.

I'm just happy that there's finally event support with a specific "Birthdays" section.

Very handy :)

They have events, but I'd like to be able to start my own.

Finally! Been waiting for this one for a while.
I'll be reviewing it next week in iPhone App Reviews :)

Well, the change in the UI has a purpose. Note the dots down the bottom? You can swipe across and add your own favorite icons for people. You tap and hole and they all jiggle just like the icons on the iPhone's home screen. But don't press home to stop the jiggling like i did, the app quits :) Tap done instead. The app is IMO, 10,000 times better, with a slight learning curve finding where things have gone. But a solid improvement IMO.

Worked okay for me just going into iTines -> Applications -> check for updates....

I'm glad they ditched the pre-release UI. That was way too much blue.

Are you kidding? New version is way better. The old version was too blue, looked bloated and busy. New version looks much cleaner.

Completely agree. The new version vs. the pre-release is so much cleaner. The icons look nicer. It only sucks if you like a lot of blue.

Also, it aligns with Facebook branding on the web version (very important).

I think the icons and color in the icons looks to "clip art" which is why i prefered just the blue with white setup

Just download it today-it's got a nice site of feature and much more easier to use than using Facebook via Safari.

I love it. The UI, the added functionality, it is awesome. It is way better than the old one. And the nice little touches, like having the icons wiggle when you hold down, are awesome. Kudos to the developer.

Plus, it's less laggy than the old one on my iPhone 3G!

I couldn't agree more here. Nice to see an update that is just as focused on improving speed than adding features - especially when it succeeds in doing both.

Big improvements for me are the better performance, event support and the ability to zoom on photos.

the second update since 3.0 is up now. Adds voice control?

Anyone else having issues with not being able to post with the updated version?

I keep getting an error message"Your comment could not be posted at this time".

Reinstalled the app and this made no difference.

This is quite possibly a user error, but I find since upgrading to new flashier FB app (which is infinitely better than previous versions) that no matter how long I have the app running new notifications don't show until I have closed the app. This means that I then get that annoying red circle on the app button telling me I have 3 new notifications and I have to re-open the app to see them.

Anyone else had this issue, or can anyone suggest why this might be? I always go to the home screen as well as news feed etc. Thanks :happy:
