Is the Facebook app laggy for anybody else?

Does the app lag on anybody else's iphone 5? This is the only app that lags on my
Phone. I thought they resolved the lag issue on the last update.

Lag seems to catch up after every update somehow. For me, I get terrible lag when tapping on a picture to see it full screen. It almost always takes more than a second, and maybe 5% of the time can take over ten seconds. Pretty annoying.

Its barely usable

like 3 or 4 stories will show up, then the rest will be blank white boxes
when they finally show up, you click to see the picture or the comments posted to a status and it takes like 5 minutes for it to come up.

Its very bad.

Curious, are you jailbroken? Wondering if there is a connection.

I get the same. It's so frustrating.

Same here. It recently just started happening about 2 weeks ago? Before that it was fine. I don't remember updating the app though..

Extremely laggy when looking at photos and comments, likes to randomly freeze a lot too.
On iPhone 4S iOS 6.1.3.

It's obnoxious on my non jailbroken 4S. It's seems like they fix it then slowly update it until its terrible again. It's fine on my Android devices so I'm sure they will roll out an update to fix it (couple months).

Nope not at all. Fluent just as every other app. Seems like I'm in the minority.

I found that it would be unresponsive for around 1-2 minute when I first open Facebook and am on mobile data. Never experienced the unresponsiveness when on wifi. It works perfectly after that first open up though (I don't keep it backgrounded in my multitasking bar)

I downgraded back to 5.6 and haven't had a problem since (saved my ipa file when it got moved to the recycle bin so I could just reinstall it should I not like the 6.0+ updates as Facebook updates back then were just horrible; still have facebook 3.2.3 on my iPod touch 2nd gen )
