Facebook finally upgraded its iOS app from a slow web wrapper to something built with the Apple SDK.

Facebook iPhone app

Facebook, universal app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is a free download.

Version 5.0 of Facebook iOS app brings these updates:

  • Twice as fast to launch
  • Smooth scrolling
  • Notifications without reloading
  • Photos “opens right away”, swipe down to close

Droids drool: on the August 23, 2012 announcement at Facebook.com/news, the Fandroids are of course crying about lack of update on their second rate platform.
