Joe Hewitt, the developer of Facebook for iPhone has detailed some of the upcoming features in Facebook 3.1.

ReadWriteWeb had a chance to talk with Hewitt and learn more about the app's roadmap. In the interview he mentioned three new features...

Contact list synchronization between your Facebook friends list and your phone's contact list
"It's a Terms of Service thing more than a technical limitation,"

Push notifications
"I plan to have it in the next major update, the 3.1. It will be the same kind of notifications you get on the website. I probably won't right off the bat give you chat notifications. If you've ever used Facebook's SMS notifications, you can have pretty granular control and it will be the same level of notification in terms of whose notifications you see and what categories you see."

Saved, site-wide search
"I hope but I can't promise to get that into the 3.1 update," Hewitt said. "We're still working on getting that into the API. I'm also hoping to let you save a search to your home screen."

No word yet on the planned release date for Facebook 3.1; however, we will let you know as soon as anymore information is available.

Hi, I have some recommendations for the new update : 1- when you open the app , it should open to the main page not the last one you was 2- add wall-to-wall reply ..... not only add comment 3-add the lists and privileges for friends ( that i can categorize my friends )
