Facebook is launching a brand new update of their mobile app for the Google Android platform.
The new app features a user interface similar to their iOS and web app.
Facebook on Android has always been a second grade experience. Their iOS app has always been much better though they aim to change that now.
Facebook promises that the new updated app is faster and features a more usable user interface.
The company developers highlighted the improvements:
Photos and albums are up to two times faster than the previous Android app. It’s also easier to share photos, view comments and edit captions on the go.
Your messages and notifications are now at the top of your screen. You can respond to friends and stay updated without leaving the page you’re on.
You can quickly access your News Feed, Groups, games and apps from the new left-hand menu. The features you use most are now at your fingertips.
We are not seeing the updated edition on the Google Android Market yet but it should be out in a couple of hours.
