The official Facebook app for Android has been updated, bringing an array of UI enhancements for an even better user experience.
Facebook for Android has received a UI overhaul and now looks much closer to its iOS counterpart, with the addition of a side menu for faster access to all the most important functions, plus your lists, groups and apps. Messages and notifications, meanwhile, have been relocated to the top and can be viewed without leaving the page you’re on.
Elsewhere, the photo album has been enhanced and loads up to twice as fast as before, with easier options to share photos, view comments, tags and likes, and edit captions.
It’s not all gravy, though. Some users have reported bugs that cause the app to crash when trying to change their profile pictures. It is also not possible to see at this time if a friend is typing when replying to your message. Otherwise it’s a pretty solid update and one that we feel fans of the social network will definitely appreciate.
