  2. Cool,Thanks.

    But not sure when it came out,a buddy just mentioned he has had it since Monday,i guess he changed phones or deleted it somehow to get the update since then.

    I did like you said,except i got it off app store.

  3. I LOVE IT!!

  4. direct upload vids from the 3gs – a great feature that will turn into a disaster when every notification is little girls taking videos on there buses, but still a great update.

  5. haha. awesome. now i cant wait for 3.1 =p PUSH NOTIFICATION!!!

  6. Imahottguy says

    Yes! So many activities!

  7. bout time hahaha. i luv the landscape view

  8. Does anyone that has a unlocked or jailbroken iphone have push notifications? mine appear and i have them on,but never get anything.

  9. The built-in browser to view links within Facebook is great! I can play Mafia Wars with the screen properly formatted!

  10. It’s okay… Having some issues on updating profile n chat does not work… Etc

    kind of weak

  11. Off the chain !!! I have spent all day on it at work and I didn’t feel like i needed the PC for any missing features like before and oooooooh -LANDSCAPE TYPING finally!!!!
    Good job facebookreators, I love my iphone 3G even more!!! can’t wait to get the 3gs!!

  12. This is an excellent update! The News Feed is accurate and actually updates in real time now.

    My only problem has been uploading pictures. Anyone else having problems?

  13. In the old facebook app you would shake the phone to update stuff like the chat. In 3.0 I tried shaking while on the chat and it doesn’t seem to be updating. How are you suppose to update who is online and who isn’t?

    • I think to see the refreshing status you have to scroll up. Just go to your News Feed, scroll to the top, shake. You should see the loading icon spinning.

  14. Okay! Great update but “Push” should have been included. I am tired of email notifications. I ran the app using “backgrounder”. I get the red badge with numbers but no sound..bummer.

    Won’t update unless your itouch has 3.0 software update. And its not worth it paying a tener for the 3.0 update.

  16. Guest panelists were paid $750 as an appearance fee. ,

  17. Blige’s combination of vocals over a hip hop beat became influential in R&B. ,
