    Default Facebook Native app for Android, update for iOS

    Facebook has launched a update for Android. *This is actually not an update but a app built from scratch using SDK.</p>

    Facebook has given native codes instead of HTML5 webview codes for faster user interface.</p>

    As per Facebooks SDK Engineer Phillip Fung:</p><blockquote>"It's twice as fast when looking at photos and opening up your Timeline, and noticeably quicker to launch."</blockquote>

    The changes which users will notice are:</p><ul>[*]Your timeline will load faster[*]Your newsfeed will roll out faster[*]Photo's will open on a tap so you can post your likes and comments[*]The Stories bar refreshes itself[/list]

    Get new *Facebook *from the Google Play store now</p>

    iOS users fret not for Facebook has released an update for them also. *The iOS Facebook update has much awaited 'Share' buttons that allows users to share their posts.</p>

    iOS users download the app from the App Store</p>

    This new strategy is the part of Facebooks *'Mobile First' policy, given the low cash flows it has from mobile telephone market. Therein a bid to fast peddle its approach it is releasing good updates, which will ultimately help us, users.</p>

    Nice but too bad that Facebook is still ignoring the Tablets. The phone optimized version is just not appropriated for tablets!
