Well, what do you know… Research in Motion has gone an released Facebook for BlackBerry 1.7, and, I have to say that it has some pretty nice new features:
- 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. “
Now, if RIM would just add the ability for you to see a contacts friends and mutual friends as well as adding Facebook Chat functionality, possibly integrating it with BlackBerry Messenger or something, Facebook for BlackBerry would be one heck of an application.
