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.
