The Facebook app has been a constant disappointment for Android users since day 1. It’s slow, buggy, and kinda clunky to use. That’s all about to change today says Facebook in a blog post. The new app comes with a brand new UI to match it’s iOS counterpart, but also a big improvement in speed.
Basically everything in the app has been improved. Photos and albums will load 2 times faster. Photo sharing, commenting, comment viewing, navigation, and much more have been improved. No longer will you have a start screen with a grid of icons. The new menu can be accessed by swiping to the right to reveal a list. Notifications are now on top of the screen similar to the website. All in all this is a much needed update, and it should be available shortly.
