Now we have (finally) a great new update to the Facebook app in beta. Fantastic! Way to go Microsoft! Well if your a WP7 user you might want to reign back that enthusiasm. This looks like an update for WP8 only.
I sure hope Microsoft's Apple-envy strategy pays off soon since they're no longer the dependable, trustworthy company they once were.
@DeathByVisualStudio:The new Twitter app for Windows Phone 8 looks and works exactly the same as the version they released for the Windows Phone 7. So there is still some support for 7.
@DeathByVisualStudio: you would be making more of a point if you actually had a Windows Phone and were heavily dependent on Facebook to maintain your busy social life...
What I don't like is that the new Facebook app is basically a clone of the UI of the iOS and Android apps. It's not metro at all and feels very out of place on Windows Phone.
It may have more features, but I preferred the UI of the previous version.
Is the Facebook app written by Microsoft, or is it written by Facebook?
It's Microsoft hense the title of the article I linked in, "Microsoft's next revision of Facebook for Windows Phone 8 hits beta". Facebook to-date has been uninterested in creating a version of their app for WP nor W8.
