Facebook 3.0 Update Coming Soon

Coming Soon: App Store       Price: Free  

FacebookKeep your eyes on the update tab in the App Store! Facebook will be releasing an update to their iPhone app very soon! I have to admit I’m pretty excited about this. Right now, the app is very clunky not to mention the major bug of messages from groups in your inbox don’t show up. There’s lots to be excited about though. Here’s a list of upcoming features straight from the developer’s Facebook account:

Facebook for iPhone 3.0 is coming very soon. I can’t predict an exact date when I will submit to Apple, but I can say that I am about 98% done. So what’s new in this update?

1. The “new” News Feed
2. Like
3. Events (including the ability to RSVP)
4. Notes
5. Pages
6. Create new photo albums
7. Upload photos to any album
8. Zoom into photos
9. Easier photo tagging
10. Profile Pictures albums
11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
12. Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
13. Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

The one feature everyone is asking for, Push Notifications, is in development but it won’t make it into 3.0. You can expect it in a 3.1 update later this summer.

When I have submitted the app to Apple I will let you all know!

  1. Dude! I can’t wait for this update! The facebook app is so lame right now. This looks like it is going to be sweet.

  2. I totally agree.

    I also hope the new update plays nice with jailbreak as it often causes a crash when I’m in the application.

    I REALLY wish you could watch videos that people post. right now you cant even see if someone posts a video let alone watch it

    • I also wish I could post videos to Facebook from my iPhone :)

    • you can post video’s from a jailbroken iPhone or used to be able to!

      I used to post my cycorder videos to facebook, with pixelpipeline and ppenabler on my jailbroken phone. But then pixelpipeline updated to 1.4 version and now enabler doesn’t work. I hope they can update so we can still post videos on this cool FB update.

    • mkrueger says

      I have Pixelpipe version 1.4.2 and still able to send cycorder videos from my iphone.

  4. Good. The existing facebook really sucks. Doesn’t even have the events. Looking forward to seeing this app.

  5. @ Steve: how did you post videos from your iphone to Facebook?

  6. What I really want the iPhone facebook app to do is to allow me to take quizes, play the games on there, and be able to post videos.

  7. I wish with facebook 3.0 i could use voice control and control all my friends…..

    Come on ppl get over it…its a phone.. ..

  8. thedanks says

    hello? newsflash… 3gs has video… we want to post our videos to facebook

  9. Any news about it?

  10. when will this be out i wonder

  11. As excited as I am there has been no word as far as I know about this scince it came out on the first I think. Does anyone know if it will be soon or not?

  12. Why don’t they have any plans on putting GROUPS in the app? I find myself needing to message a whole group at times, and without the groups I can’t do it…or I have to log into Safari’s Normal Facebook Page, zoom in, etc. etc.

  13. this update is taking for ever if he said he was 98% done then he must have been working on this update even before the first facebook for iphone came out

  14. What’s the communication frequency of this App with the FB server?
    And is it adjusable?

  15. it’s still not out?

  16. It’s finally out!!!!!!!
