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.
Thanks for updating Facebook. In order to keep you rating low, I will have to keep submitting my review every two weeks. To switch on automatic reviews go to Settings>Update app and don't click it. My review will then remain, along with your ratings, which conveniently are reset every two weeks.
The app really is rubbish now. It is slow to load (far slower than the web app in the browser). It often causes my entire phone to freeze (closing it fully from the multitasking screen unfreezes the phone) - I have an iPhone 6- I can't imagine the experience on an iPhone 4!
I don't mind the separate messaging app. I do mind the new message notifications appearing on both apps. I do mind it when the app claims I have 8 or 9 notifications when I have 1.
I don't mind being shown the top stories. I do mind being shown the same stories in the afternoon that I was shown in the morning. How boring and irrelevant. At least with the old method of sorting I was shown new things each time I opened the app.
I use Facebook less and less each day because of annoying this like these.
Please tell me WHAT you are updating. I genuinely would not care if you updated the app every single day- but if you don't tell me what you've updated, how can I appreciate it?
And why on earth have you added a silly noise whenever I click a button?
New update - no change?
Latest version, then: seems exactly the same as before.
It's really pointless leaving any feedback here isn't it? An update with no noticeable changes every fortnight then I post the same review. First day after the update shows a stream of one star reviews with the same concerns and these are then buried as we approach the next meaningless update. Weird. Anyway - here's my usual review that lists the same problems (and the same problems everyone has) every two weeks...
Latest news stream is worse than ever - totally out of sync with 'Most Recent' (the option everyone seems to want) and full of days old nonsense.
Separate Messenger app uses needless memory on my phone and I could really do without it.
The fortnightly updates are a great wheeze - all the negative reviews get archived once a fortnight and so anyone reading them doesn't see the complaints about being forced to install Messenger, regular crashes and a stupid news feed system that makes it hard to use FB the way you want (ie 'Most Recent').
A cynical strategy from a cynical company. Shame users wishes aren't listened to... and are now archived once a fortnight to start afresh. This just isn't a company that seems to listen to it's user base.
Not very reliable……crApp
So after the most recent update I can no longer click on anything making the whole app pointless as I can no longer update my status, look at photos, open articles etc!!!
The app has never worked brilliantly there have always been crashes, bugs and limited functionality etc ie cant delete friends, view groups etc but recently it's terrible!!! As other reviews chat doesn't work, regularly freezes and sends you notifications but won't show comments etc or vice versa. Since ios4 update it takes actually minutes to comment/post or just crashed altogether. I rarely receive notifications anymore ir if i do they days late. Rubbish :o(
