Facebook iOS app gets major update

Facebook iPhone app upgrade brings tagging smarts and improved design, but still no iPad app.

Facebook has finally seen fit to update its much-criticised iOS app, bringing a slew of new features and improved functionality. However, there’s still no iPad app, leaving owners of Apple’s slate stuck using the web version of the social network.

The big changes include an improved Profile design, along with the ability to tag friends and places in posts. The latter has been a huge miss and meant using the Facebook app has never come close to aping the real web experience.

You can also share external links more easily, as well as tweak privacy settings as you add new posts, with any changes being reflected on the Facebook website whenever you next log in.

Bug fixes and a tweaked Group page complete this hefty upgrade. Our initial play suggests Zuckerberg and co have definitely ironed out the kinks, but that it still feels sluggish in places. What do you think? Let us know on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
