What's New in Version 29.0
Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store every 2 weeks. You can update the app automatically (without checking back here) by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads and turning on Updates.
Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As other new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.
Every hour or so, the app is telling me I have a new notification and I have none and no new messages. It's annoying and I feel like I need to get rid of the badge on the icon. Please fix this asap. Another ongoing problem is that the app resets itself to the top of the newsfeed 10-15 seconds after opening. Oftentimes, I see something I want to read only for me to be taken pages away from it. Take a note from Twitter, an app that everybody loves and works great and use a feed that shows recent posts, not suggested random posts in a random order and let us leave off where we started and let us swipe over to our messages in app. There is too much going on with Facebook and none of it is good. I use it because the services are good and photo sharing is convenient but the app is terrible and needs more improvement than the useless two week updates. So many reviews have actual helpful criticism, please stop ignoring your users.
Thank you for restoring excess ability to voiceover users, please don't take it away again?
Making good on my promise, changing my rating to 5 stars. See my previous rating below. So, today I was prepared to give the app five stars. Then I got the update. Now it is not accessible with voiceover. When I click notifications, it asks me to double tap for messaging, calendar, and a whole bunch of other things that are not notifications. The notifications screen is completely inaccessible, but everything else is so I will raise my rating, Bring back the notifications screen to be accessible and I will give this five stars.
Needs a lot of fixing!!
Always renew the feeds without my consent. I can't change the newsfeed setting from old to new not due to popularity or whatever it does. A lot of my friends status doesn't show on my newsfeed until days later. Needs a lot of fixing here! Make settings easier to find! Ohhhh and of course stop making us use the messenger apps to read our msg!! Some of us don't even have enough space on our phone for the app or don't even want to use it but can't private msg anyone! Also whenever someone wants to borrow my phone to go in their FB, I have to log out of FB AND the messenger app so they can log in their FB AND messenger. Sooooooo irritating!!!!! Please take off the messenger app so we can have the old FB a back with the msg already in it.
