Facebook for iPhone 3.0

Around 10pm last night, Apple made the new Facebook 3.0 application available for purchase/download from their App Store and have to say what a big improvement it is over the previous versions of the Facebook application for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

If you haven't tried it out yet I urge you to go ahead and download this app. Apart from the new user interface here are a list of changes/improvements over the previous editions.

- 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
- Chat friends sorted alphabeticaly

Also I noticed that if you have any notifications in Facebook, when you exit the app the Facebook icon now shows you how many notifications you have.

Very cool indeed!

Edit: Version 3.02 is now available. Fixes more bugs.
