Facebook’s native Android app officially released

About three months ago we heard that Facebook was working on a native app for Android, and it’s finally here. No more HTML5 as it has been rebuilt in native code, which will improve speed and performance. The news feed and Timeline will be much faster whether you’re opening the app, looking at photos, or interacting with friends. Photo loading is now optimized and is faster. They also added a new story banner that’s automatically updated and will bubble up the newest stories no matter where you are in the news feed.


This release creates a solid foundation moving forward as they can now continue to tweak it and make it even faster. What I want to know is if they fixed the widget? Just in case you don’t already have it installed on your device, hit the break for download links.

About the Author: Robert Nazarian

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.

    Got the update. Works silky smooth. After so many crap updates I’m wondering if this is a fluke. Either way it’s actually a legit app now
