Facebook 3.0 for iPhone Adds Events and Photo Albums, But No Push (Yet)

Illustration for article titled Facebook 3.0 for iPhone Adds Events and Photo Albums, But No Push (Yet)

Here's what Facebook for iPhone 3.0 looks like—pretty nice. Besides the new giant button home screen, you'll be able to actually RSVP to events and create new photo albums. No push yet, but here's the full list:

1. The "new" News Feed
2. Like
3. Events (including the ability to RSVP)
4. Notes
5. Pages
6. Create new photo albums
7. Upload photos to any album
8. Zoom into photos
9. Easier photo tagging
10. Profile Pictures albums
11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
12. Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
13. Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

I'm sure Jesus will love being able to finally zoom in on photos. It's coming "soon," but no exact date yet. Later this summer, 3.1 will finally bring push notifications. [Facebook via Inside Facebook]

The ability to zoom in on photos is nice but my biggest annoyance with the FB app is when viewing photos the slightest movement in any direction rotates the photo so it's difficult to keep a photo still without it switching rapidly back and forth between portrait and landscape. Their accelerometer code is fucked up or is it just me?
