Amid Android 2.2 updates being sent to Android devices this week, Facebook has updated its Android app, redesigning it to closely resemble the iOS version of the Facebook app. The updated version, which works on devices running Android 1.6 or higher, adds a new notifications drawer and a photo reel displaying photos and videos posted by friends at the bottom of the home screen.
New features include improved functionality, including the ability to perform more actions — like respond to friend requests and RSVP to events — directly within the application. Plus, there's a simpler, one-touch button for updating your status. The update is available to new and existing Facebook app users in the Android Market.
