Facebook update adds pull-to-refresh, new sharing/tagging options, and more to HTC EVO

Fb2 In my honest opinion, Facebook for Android has never kept up with its iOS counterpart. When I look at my girlfriend's iPhone 3GS and my HTC EVO 4G feels inferior . . . I get infuriated.

All right, the Facebook app isn't that bad, but several features have been missing since the beginning. Today, that has changed. In the latest version (1.7), many features have been added or changed: 

  • Sharing with who you want is easier
  • Improved sharing tool
  • Added ability to tag friends and places in photos and posts
  • New design for Profile
  • Swiping for photo browsing
  • Improved messages and notifications
  • Swipe to delete posts or archive messages
  • Pull-to-refresh
  • Fixed crashes and performance issues

I have to say this update to Facebook for Android is a big step in the right direction! Hopefully the Zuckerberg will keep it up.
