    While chatting If I try to take a picture and send it through chat, the app crashes. Anyone on the same boat? The crashing doesnt seem to be constant, but it is deffo a bug. Not even resetting the phone helps.

    4S running on 7.0.2, latest Facebook version

    The latest version of Facebook isn't version 4.0.2, it's 6.5.1.

    Sure he doesn't mean 7.0.2 not 4.0.2?

    Facebook app is perpetually buggy... Not much you can do about it except report it to Facebook themselves.

    Facebook is probably the worst coded app I've got. It's ridiculous how bad it is.
    And it progressively gets slower and slower with every update. Although I did notice a slight improvement for the last update that brought it the iOS 7 design.

    I'm running an iPhone 4, and for an app like Facebook that's on most people's phones, it's amazing that they don't properly optimize their code. I mean, how is it possible for there to be a delay of several seconds after tapping on a photo to view the full size and comments? And then even dismissing that photo takes several seconds? Never have these problems with Twitter or any other similar social app.

    Drives me crazy. As a web developer, I always try to make my code as efficient as possible. Something all types of developers should do if they're thinking of the user experience, which honestly should be above everything else.

    Just my two frustrated sense haha. :)

    Facebook is a horrible horrible app. I dont even bother using it on my phone anymore. Not sure if the mobile site is any better.

    This. The photo delay glitch is the most obvious one for me. The other is crashing uploading a video, regardless of size.

    My issue is that sometimes I'll tap on a link and it just won't respond at all, even if I wait. I end up having to close the app down and then go back in to see it. Annoying, hopefully they fix it soon.

    Ha, alright (I just know a lot of people who don't update their apps).

    As everyone else has evidenced, the Facebook app is horrible often. Every single X version I've updated to has fixed one issue but added another. I haven't had your issue before, but the latest issue is that typing in search is so unbelievably slow and useless.
