Facebook app update?

Hi,

The version I'm currently using is 1.2.0. Is that the latest one?  I heard there was supposed to be a Facebook app update? I am definitely not happy with this version as it is very limiting (it doesn't refresh my status after i change it, can't comment on status updates, etc). I end up just using the mobile site. 

 

When is this update supposed to happen, do you know? And what changes would be made to the current one? Thanks!

Re: Facebook app update?

Yes 1.2.0 is the latest. Have you tried clearing your device Facebook cache?

While in the app, click the left menu button, select Options, then scroll & click on "Clear Cache".

You also need to make sure the section above that sayd you a currently logged in...

If you want instant friends list updates, make sure to clear the checkmark on the "Prompt before refreshing friends list" line.

Hope that helps!!

Hi, thanks! I tried clearing the cache, and I did uncheck the "prompt" field just now. However, I still have my old status update from sometime early this week.

 

I guess I'm comparing it with the iPhone's facebook app.... difference is night and day. hope the bold app catches up!

Re: Facebook app update?

I'm totally in agreement with vmbpc.  When I use 1.2 the inbox (default) screen says no messages, however via the BB browser or on the PC I may have 6 or 7 messages.  

 

In Options I have unchecked the "Prompt before refreshing Friens list" box and I clear my cache frequently...still no auto updates or Inbox message updates.

 

It is good for uploading photos to my Mobile Photo Album and changing my status.

 

I was expecting it to be more effective in terms of instant updates.
