Facebook App REALLY slow...

I have the new Iphone 4S... My facebook app runs really slow. I tried deleting it and reinstalling, and that only helped for a short time. I have a strong signal when I use it both on 3G (verizon) and Wi-Fi. Anyone have any tips to help this?

Thanks!

Personally I think the app has multiple issues. I've noticed faster standby battery drain if I don't kill it.

Yes, FaceBook on 4S is sucking for both me and my wife. About 95% of the time is is painfully slow and non-responsive. Sometimes if I post a comment on a photo for example, it actually attaches my comment to a completely different photo. It's just very buggy. Zuckerberg needs to get his software people in line and put out an update. For what its worth though, FB on my wife's iPad is working fairly well.

This weekend the lag on it on my iPad and iPhone was crazy. I opened up Facebook in my iPad browser and it had no issues. I think Facebook found the four worst programmers they had and said "have fun!" Seriously, people are putting realistic games on these things and Facebook can't get an app to match its website speed? Programming fail.

Did anyone figure out a solution to this problem because I am experiencing it as well. There is delayed scrolling and typing. Very annoying!

I'm just hoping for an update sometime soon. Multiple bugs.

Most recently annoying one is when it doesn't update to show new comments on photos/posts half the time even though the notifcation area is telling me they're there. No matter how often I refresh it doesn't update.

The latest version of the Facebook app is awful.
Turning off the location toggle (for the app) speeds it up somewhat since it quits polling your location at every reload, but it is still much slower than the older versions.

Very slow for me as well, though I'm on a 3GS which is slow in its own right. The "News Feed" doesn't always load for me, which is pretty annoying.

the app is horrible on every mobile platform. i came to the 4s from an android and that version is just as bad.

its funny though because the comments in the android market are all complaining that they want the app to be as good as the iphone version lol.

Thankfully I rarely use it, but yes, it's like pulling teeth on my 1st gen iPad.

I don't believe they've ever out out a solid app for Facebook. The biggest problem I'm having now (on my 4S) is that often when I click to comment on a photo it brings up the comments and has me comment on a different photo.

I rarely use it on my phone, but have had the same issues when I do. The last few days it has been horridly slow in scrolling - a device reboot helped.

But what drives me the most crazy is the crappy picture quality on my iPad. I have engadget in my feed and I can never tell what the pictures are, and sometimes i click on friends pictures and they are clear, then scale and become useless.

Ugh.

My app kept crashing when I tried to open it, so I deleted it and then re-downloaded it. It STILL crashes upon opening at least once a day!

Facebook app it's the only app I have to kill every time I loaded up, because it drains my battery and RAM if I let it suspend in app switcher.

I can't never change my profile pic in the app cause it it loads up a different pic.

They should've use the resources they used for the messenger app to really improve the man app.

Try to use the web app. It doesn't have notifications but it feels better.
