    That's great, the current app sucks super monkey balls.

    I'm not a fan of the combined wall and mini-feed, which is why I haven't switched over to new.facebook.com yet.

    Current app works great for me, however the ability to search for new contacts is a must. Excellent news.

    FINALLY! This is all good news.

    Curious about the included screenshots, though. In the first two images, what's with the weird second row of buttons? The first one has the beginning of "posted items" on the right. The second one has the last part of "photos." Is this a scrollable, left-to-right bar, or something? If so, it looks really weird like this. I would think just using arrows would have worked better. Unless this is some sort of bug already?

    Anyway -- who cares? I'm super excited for notifications, friend accepts, and a usable inbox!!! Woo hoo!!

    Would be amazing to have chat notifications by push too when that is launched. I wonder if they will?

    Better still would be Parlingo to support facebook chat!

    ah! bliss.

    I love the facebook web app, and the iPhone application, but was bewildered when the app wasn't a bettered version of the web app (iphone felt like version 1, web app like version 2).

    This looks to be the best combination of the two. Very much looking forward to it!

    AMAZING! i cannot wait for this app. This is one of my most used daily apps! Facebook has got to be the best social site ever considering friendster, myspace, virb, classmates.com etc...

    Facebook is like the OS X of socialnetworking. Very clean and nice layout compared to all the other bloated overly done sites.

    This is one of the best apps for the iphone. Keep up the great work!

    I like the look of what's comming, I've found the iPhone app has almost enough features for me to never really bother going on facebook at home...

    The intial release was lacking alot but it's going from strength to strength now...
