What's New in Version 25.0
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.
There are updates, but you don't see/feel them.
2/28 - another update. None of the problems below were fixed. Now one more: loading items on news feed will make the app freeze, and killing it to return to the app won't help.
Surely the updates that the app receives every other week is a good thing. But every time it makes changes that you DO see, are ones that are the most annoying and not very constructive. The last change they made was moved Messenger OUT of the Facebook app itself, and then have to make you download a separate app to use the same function. That's not a good experience and very frustrating. There is also a bug that seems to be unnoticed ever since the app allows videos to be played inline in the feeds. When you have a video playing, if you are also playing music, the app will automatically turn down the volume of your own music, so you can hear the audio from the video. This is fine, if the app is smart enough to give me back my music to normal volume afterwards, but it doesn't, and will only resume normal after killing the app. For some reasons, apps like Instagram and whatsapp (both of which are now under the Facebook empire) do multimedia sharing and messaging better. Why not combine all three, or just let the Facebook app does its best and only job - news feed.
Take out all the parts I like and leave the stuff I don't.
The app continues to disappoint by not giving me the controls I want. Since they took away messenger from the Facebook app they continue to give me notifications for new messages with no way to read them or clear the notification. Now that little red badge icon is always on unless I go in through chrome browser which pretty hard to navigate on the tiny iPhone screen. Worse yet I don't get to see posts in order an instead only see what the Facebook algorithm thinks is important which is usually junk. Lastly notifications from pages show up under personal account and when I clear them through the app I still see them in the Facebook pages app and I still see them on the web browse. If google+ can figure out how to dismiss once and clear in all places why not Facebook?
Also it's horrendous how they "continue to update" this app but all they do is copy and past the description without telling you what new impressive features they are giving. If I didn't know any better if day they were trying to wipe the slate of 1 star reviews away and start fresh again but continue to make the same mistakes.
If they would just remove the messages button all together for Facebook app it wouldn't be this bad cause then messages wouldn't pile up in this app where I can't check them.
It's getting to the point where I think that te creators of the Facebook app do not care about the comments of its actual users. I have read a lot of the reviews since your current update and no one was happy I am also not happy. This is the most frustrating app I have ever downloaded I thank you thank you thst it's free but if you're going to offer an app that's free you shouldn't advertise that it's going to be a great app like you do. It freezes it crashes I can't ehardly ever look at an article or a page that I like without the app crashing kicking me out and God for bid I go back to my newsfeed to try to look and find the same article that I was previously reading because now my Facebook has done upload 10,000 other things and status updates that were from yesterday you need to get this problem fixed and according to all of the other users I'm not the only person that feels this way I am pretty sure by your current review status that you're going to be losing a lot of Facebook app users are use my Facebook for my mini iPad as well as my Moto X phone and have many problems on my on my phone but I have Majority of my problems on my iPad
