What's New in Version 3.2.1
• Bug fixes
For log out: Tap the gear in bottom left. Go to Privacy and Terms. Tap the 3 line icon in top left. Scroll down to log out. If the 3 line icon is not there, delete app then download again. You may also have to update again. Nice update for tapping profile pic to go to Timeline. I like the notifications. It's like being alerted for a text in iMessage. Why do some not want that? If someone messages me, I want to know. Be sure to set for sounds in the Facebook settings too.
Video and voice calls between computers and phones aren't part of the app like they are with Skype. Also, it's a nuisance to have to open two apps to use Facebook and be switching back and forth between them all the time. Lastly, getting spammy reminders to invite friends to download the messenger app that I don't like very much anyway is irritating.
If there were extra functionalities like with WeChat or Line or if calling and video chat worked like Skype it'd be OK.
Why not an iPad optimized version?
I use an Apple iPhone 4S and the intuitive UI really impressed me. It lead me to try installing Messenger in my iPad and found out that there wasn't a version optimized for iPads! It won't take that much time... I am positive that many people who use Facebook will welcome the iPad optimized app when it comes out :)
