Facebook Plans to Release a Much Improved iPhone App Next Month

Facebook is planning to release a completely rebuilt and much faster iPhone app next month, according to the New York Times.

One of the Facebook engineers said the new application has been built primarily using Objective-C, the programming language used to build applications for iOS. Many of the components of the current version of the Facebook app are built using HTML5, the Web-based markup language.

The NYT's Nick Bilton got a chance to see the unreleased app.

"I had the opportunity to see the as-yet unreleased iPhone application, and it is fast. Blazing fast. The two engineers I spoke with said the new application is being tested by Facebook developers and is expected to be updated this summer."

You can download Facebook from the App Store for free.

I don't believe anything they say about the iPhone Facebook app. It been bad for ages and with every new update it gets worst. I hope it gets better but I just don't see that happening. It'll be a whole new set of bugs.
