Facebook for Android updated to 1.9.11; app sucks just a little less now
The Facebook for Android app received a small update in the Google Play Store this evening, bringing the latest version number up to 1.9.11. If, for some reason, you’re still stuck on that side of the Internet and haven’t moved on to bigger and better things, you’ll be interested to learn that this update brings faster photo tagging, the ability to choose an album when uploading photos, and a there’s also a bugfix for an issue with uploading photos for people using certain languages.
In other news, the app still sucks, and ol’ Marky Mark needs to lay the smack down on his Android development team. With all the money they’ve got over there, the least they could do is provide an app with half the functionality the mobile app for Google’s social network has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I still have a Facebook account to keep in touch with my less-”techy” friends and family members, but until their app issues are worked out (if that ever happens), I think I’ll stick to using the mobile site instead.
In other Zuck-related news, the Facebook Messenger app also got an update the other day, including the following features:
- Swipe left anywhere in the app to quickly see who’s available and send a message
- Add friends you message most to the top of your Favorites
- Try texting with Messenger (currently only available on some phones)
- New design for conversations
- Improved speed and reliability
- Bug fixes
- Bug fix for auto-rotation issue
