Facebook rolls out another Android app update (1.8.1)

Facebook has issued another update to their Android application today, putting v1.8.1 on the streets barely a week after its last update.  Normally such a quick followup like this results in a bug fix, security enhancement or something minor.  That’s not the case here as there are a number of features with this version.  Check ’em out!

  1. Navigate anywhere, fast: Get to your groups, apps, pages, and settings with a single press
  2. Search and you will discover: Look through friends, subscribers, apps, and pages
  3. See your friends tags on pictures and zoom: New photo viewing experience
  4. Faster notifications: Get alerted in real time with new push notifications
  5. Games & Apps: Play games and access your favorite apps on the go
  6. Access to mobile timeline (If you already have a timeline)
  7. Access to friend lists and subscriptions
