What's New in Version 58.0
Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly.
Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.
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 main app caches so much data I regularly need to delete it and reinstall when it approaches half a gig - my phone doesn't have the memory space to sustain this.
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.
Before I installed the new update (which i don't understand why there's always updates when NOTHING changes) a few days ago the app work perfectly fine, and now since the update, the app keeps closing which is really starting to annoy me! I open the app and i'm on it for about 2-5 minutes if i'm lucky, either reading statuses or watching videos and all of a sudden, the app just closes and takes me back to my home screen. please sort it out! Also would be great if this app didn't have a separate app for messages as its all taking up to much space on phone which i need and if it comes to it i'll be deleting one of the apps or maybe both if the bugs don't get sorted!
Major bug remains after a year
Fortnightly updates but the app still retains its most annoying bug. Click a link in the app, it opens a webview, you start reading the article on the site, maybe scroll down a little, it refreshes the page, and continues doing so periodically, with the page going blank and the content slowly appearing on screen again, possibly with the page scrolling back up to the top. Makes reading anything but the shortest os articles a complete chore. This problem is raised on facebook forums multiple times dating back over a year.
