Former Apple employees hired by Facebook are working on a new faster iPhone app, reports Bloomberg.

Facebook's app has long been considered slow. The new development team plans to have an initial release of the speedy app within a couple months. A bigger overhaul of the app is expected next year.

Bloomberg names some of those hired by Facebook:

Former Apple staff hired by Facebook to work on mobile are: Greg Novick, who helped develop the touch-screen user interface; Tim Omernick and Chris Tremblay, who also worked on the device's software; and Scott Goodson, who helped create the stock-market application, according to people with knowledge of the hires.

Last year, Facebook also bought Push Pop Press, a digital publishing software maker co-founded by Apple alumni Mike Matas and Kimon Tsinteris, two designers who helped build the look and feel of the iPhone and iPad software. Matas is credited with creating the battery logo that shows on the iPhone screen when it's charging.
