What’s Up With Facebook Mobile iPhone App?

Good evening everyone.  🙂

A couple years ago, when iPhone OS 2.0 came out, one of the first Apps that I got was the Facebook app.  Great right?  Well, since then, it’s had a rocky life.

When the Facebook App was release, it was a great app overall.  It was lacking in many areas, but it was a great start at least.

When iPhone OS 3.0 came out last year, there were some difficulties with the app.  As soon as iPhone OS 3.0 came out, the Mobile Developer left the project and passed it on to someone else; someone else with more time to update the app and so on.  I’m thinking, “Great!  This could be good.”  And it has been for the most part.

Now this year, under a new developer, with iOS 4.o out in the wild now and a new iPhone out as well, there seems to me more problems.  I just checked the iTunes reviews and lots of people are complaining about the app crashing all the time.  Funny thing is as soon as I opened up the Facebook app, I was greeted with my home screan.  Huh, I though.

I tried the usual tricks, uninstalling and reinstalling; Failed.  Soft reset, hard reset, nothing worked.  So I submitted my own iTunes review of the app.

Seems that the problems lies with the iPhone 4 specifically.  I hope they push out a fix soon because it’s driving me nuts.

Let’s see what happens in the next few days.

Have you been having problems with the Facebook iPhone app?  Did you write your own review for it in iTunes?  Please feel free to comment. 🙂
