Facebook for iPhone Update 3.1.3

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

FacebookFacebook has put out another update with some fixes to a couple things that have really been annoying me. One is video playback! You can now watch videos posted on Facebook. Another is links to photo albums now work. Before it would just give an error. Also, you can upload .png files. This helps us upload screenshots from our iPhones. Before you would just get a black screen instead of the picture. Here’s the full list of updates:

New features in this version:

– You can now watch Facebook videos.

This version contains fixes for the following bugs:

– No more than 2 notifications were highlighted as unread
– Status updates appeared out of order in News Feed
– Broken photo album links in News Feed

  1. Actually on the video playback,you get directed out of Facebook App and you cannot return,you would have to go back into the app again as if you choosing the app again.

    As for some pictures,usually the pictures i would grab from Safari would be black,the pictures i would take and or grab from a text message would work fine.

    I am sure little by little it will get to be a better experience.

    • the video playback would work ok like this in iOS4 i guess.
      with multitasking you could switch back……

      i have backgrouder/kirikae installed so its not much of an issue for me
      still it was a pain when i first tested this

    • Well i figured such as other apps return you back to the app you were first at,i just figured the Facebook fix would be the same.

      Oh well,we cannot have it all right.

    • For me it plays in the app. Are you sure the video wasn’t a youtube video? I had one of those pull me out of the app, although they could make it play in the app also.

    • It was a youtube video,but i have used other apps before and it returns me to the app by itself.

      I just tried looking at it,and all i see is youtube videos,i would have to wait and see if anyone places a personal video to facebook to see if it works like you mention.

  2. have you experienced some errors like you can’t go to your profile after updating to 3.1.3?

  3. You cannot collect gift for zooworld though and that has really annoyed me
