Facebook updates Android app

Facebook updates Android app

New features have been added to the Facebook app for Android phones, bringing it in line with the software already available on rival smartphone platforms.

The biggest changes have been made to the way in which Facebook updates and notifications are delivered and made accessible, with new photos uploaded by your chums now viewable via a scrolling slideshow at the bottom.

The revamped app also allows you to reply to event invitations and comment on pictures from within the app itself, where before you would have to use the native browser to access the mobile version of the full Facebook site.

You will still have to head to the mobile site if you want to actually read notifications in full, but overall the app has certainly improved and it is definitely closer to replicating the successful features of the iPhone version.

Compatible with all versions of Google's operating system, the application is available to download now from the Android Market.
