Official Facebook App Hits Android Market

facebook_android2All you Facebook users will be pleased to learn that the official Facebook application for Android has arrived.  Head to the Android Market now to grab the free client.  We’ve haven’t had a chance to play with it just yet, but one of our tipsters tells us users can shake to refresh.  Also included are the widget, and a “Facebook Phonebook” live folder which allows you to bring up phone numbers of all your Facebook friends and call them.

The description as it appears in the Android Market:

Facebook for Android™ makes it easy to stay connected and share information with friends. You can share status updates from your home screen, check out your news feed, look at your friends’ walls and user info. Share photos from your phone and can even look up up to 125 friends’ phone numbers from the home screen.

We’ll be back with more details as we get a chance to play with it.

Thanks to the handful of you who sent this in so quickly!

    I'd hope to have an easy access to my Friends List in a next version.. right now, it's pretty much a struggle to access it. I had to click on my wall, click on my profile and then get to the Friends List.
