Facebook for iPhone 3.0 Released

Facebook for iPhone 3.0

The much-awaited Facebook for iPhone OS 3.0 is now available on the iPhone App Store.

Joe Hewitt, developer of the iPhone app had submitted the third iteration of their iPhone app on Aug. 16 to Apple for approval.

So if you have been waiting eagerly for the new version download it from the App Store as Apple.

The latest version of Facebook’s iPhone app includes the following new features:

  • See your upcoming Events and RSVP

  • See your friends' birthdays

  • See Pages and post updates and photos to Pages you administer

  • Write Notes and read your friends' Notes

  • Upload videos from an iPhone 3GS

  • Upload photos to any album

  • Complete photo management (create albums, delete albums, delete photos, delete photo tags)

  • Change your Profile Picture

  • Zoom into photos

  • Like posts and photos

  • See the same News Feed as the Facebook website
  • Visit links in a built-in web browser

  • See all of your friends' friends and Pages

  • See mutual friends

  • Easily search for people and Pages

  • Make friend requests

  • Become a fan of Pages

  • Quickly call or text your friends

  • Create shortcuts to your favorite friends and Pages

  • Friends sorted by first or last name according to your settings

Please note that if you are still seeing the older version of the Facebook app (v2.5, like I was) then delete the iPhone app and reinstall it from the App Store (thanks Hewitt for the tip!). It worked for me.
