+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Facebook today finally released an update to their iOS app. No real new features, but version 5.0 was rebuilt from the ground up for speed. Gone should be the long long delays in loading just about any information. Here are the listed updates:

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.
