    COMING SOON

    Quote:

    Facebook for iPhone 3.0 is coming very soon. I can't predict an exact date when I will submit to Apple, but I can say that I am about 98% done. So what's new in this update?

    1. The "new" News Feed
    2. Like
    3. Events (including the ability to RSVP)
    4. Notes
    5. Pages
    6. Create new photo albums
    7. Upload photos to any album
    8. Zoom into photos
    9. Easier photo tagging
    10. Profile Pictures albums
    11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
    12. Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
    13. Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
    14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
    15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

    The one feature everyone is asking for, Push Notifications, is in development but it won't make it into 3.0. You can expect it in a 3.1 update later this summer.

    When I have submitted the app to Apple I will let you all know!

    - Joe

    Well, considering that is only currently available to iPhone developers I doubt it comes in this update. (Just a hunch.)

    But yes, I can not wait for this feature to come.

    The "new" news feed is rubbish. The only reason I use the current version of Facebook on my iPhone is that it highlights things which aren't obvious on the website because of all the changes they have made there.

    Or you could just upload your iPhone video to YouTube, and then link to that from Facebook.

    You beat me by two minutes! I love the new update, FINALLY, some simple things that should have been added since 1.0.

    Darn no push -_- I'll wait. What other choice do I have :D

    Sounds promising.

    My current Facebook app let's me down. I'd get notifications saying things like "Abby has commented on your photo" but doesn't tell me which of the 400 photos it is!? That's why I'm glad #11 (listed in first post) is coming.

    The visuals look pretty nice too :)

    I don't like the facebook SMS messages either. Sometimes it cuts off what the person writes on my wall, and when they comment on a photo it just gives me the link and not the comment.

    I assume we will be able to delete emails from the inbox now?

    In v2, if someone writes on my wall I can't comment on it unless someone else has commented first. Will this change in 3.0?

    Looks nice, thanks for all your hard work. Lots of much needed improvements! Still, push will be the biggie for a lot of people.

    I hope 3.0 will fix the fact that I can never view messages.

    New feed makes me a sad panda. Does that mean seeing who became friends with who is now lost forever? :-(

    Bit concerned there's no mention of getting copy and paste to actually work too.

    I am excited for this update, but the thread title is false. In the note (and even what you quoted) it clearly says he has NOT submitted it, and still does not know when he will submit this update, so how could it be waiting for Apple's approval? huh? HUH!?!?!? :rolleyes:

    anywho...sounds awesome. :D


    Edit: Hooray, the title has been edited. ;)

    im 25, in college, work for a event promotion company, and am likely the only person i know who doesnt have a facebook account.

    i do twitter for entertainment, ability to control the sources of news i want.. and shameless viewing of stupid things famous people do (but again, those who i think are important..

    as far as my lack of facebook.. i feel that if i havent kept in close ( or any ) contact with people from "back in the day", there is good reason for that somewhere.

    hahaha.
