Facebook 5.0 For Apple iPhone and iPad Owners Leaves Android Users in the Dark

A few days ago Facebook launched Facebook 5.0 for iOS devices. Here are the notes on the new version:

“Facebook 5.0 for iOS is twice as fast as the previous version when launching the app, scrolling through news feed and opening photos in feed.

  • App opens quickly

    We’ve rebuilt the app from the ground up, so now the app opens much faster and your news feed and notifications load right when you open Facebook.

  • Stories scroll smoothly

    As you scroll down your news feed, all your friends’ stories appear faster than ever. A banner lets you know when new stories come in, and you can tap once to immediately see the latest updates.

  • Photos load instantly

    Tap on any photo and it opens right away. Pull down to close it with a single swipe.”

  • Facebook also updated their Android App, but nothing in comparison to the iOS update. With the new Android update, you can now easily create events from the app, share photos faster with a new upload process, and add photos and emoji to messages.

    But before everyone thinks that Mark Zuckerberg has something against Android, according to Business Insider, Facebook employees are being forced to give up their iPhones and use Android phones. Facebook management realizes its Android app is subpar – and believes that the only way employees will take fixing it seriously is if they have to deal with its issues day in, day out.
