RIM quietly updated their Facebook for BlackBerry application overnight. The new version is 1.7 and just updates a few small things, plus enhances performance. You should be able to download the latest version of Facebook either in App World, or by pointing your BlackBerry browser to m.facebook.com or blackberry.com/facebook.
Here’s a list of upgrades:
- News Feed Support – The ability to set the News Feed as the landing page
- News Feed Filters – The ability to toggle between ‘News Feed, Status Updates, Photos & Links’
- Caching Improvements – The application uses the device memory more efficiently.
- Feed Pre-fetching – The user will not be required to wait while their Facebook Feeds are updated
- View Profile Menu Option – Clients may easily view their own profile by selecting ‘View my Profile’ from the menu. “
