Facebook's Updated iOS App Is Fully Native and Free of HTML5

Facebook just released its updated iOS app, which it says is twice as fast as before. The reason for the speed boost? Instead of serving as a container for HTML5 content, its now fully native.

Among the improvements to the app is the ability to scroll faster in News Feed, access new stories and notifications without having to refresh, a nicer and easier to use photo UI, and Timeline profile pages for the iPad app. All are nice additions to an app many of us use with regularity. You can download it now in the iTunes store. [iTunes via The Verge]
