    Just updated. Nice to see some Android love, and notifications now open in the app (Thank you, Flying Spaghetti Monster!). Places and Groups are nice. I still use Foursquare and not Places, but still...nice to have.

    Still no chat though, and notifications still only include messages, friend requests, and event invites: still no notifications for replies to my posts, which is just a very very odd ommission.

    I am not familiar with the iPhone version for comparison, but I believe it has chat, right? Anything else we're missing compared to it?

    Ya the iPhone version does have chat. I just hope that the notification system actually works on the Android version.

    ^ See above. Notifications open in the app now (and not the browser) but they are still missing (IMO) the most important ones, which are replies to your posts, or replies to posts you've commented on. Only notifications are Friend Requests, Event Invites, and Messages. Lame. Guess I still have to keep Bloo around just for notifications and chat.

    Ya I know they are in the app, I meant that we actually get them in the status bar of our phones. This update seems to be a big improvement over the previous versions of the app but until we get chat and a proper notification system the app wont live up to its potential. I still like he notifications on BB the best.

    It is a step in the right direction, but we REALLY need:

    - PUSH Notifications!!!!
    - Chat
    - Support for managing pages

    iPhone app does all of this and more..... sure hope we aren't waiting another 6 months for an update with these features, since Zuck said that the Android app and iphone app will be right on par with each other...

    I'm happy for an update, but I was expecting just a little more than this.

    I don't care as much about chat as I do notifications, but agree. I have Bloo installed specifically for notifications (it also does chat, but I don't use it often). The rest of Bloo sucks IMO though, but at least the notification system works.

    Yeah...I don't use it for anything except notifications in my notification bar. I will uninstall it as soon as the "real" app gets real notifications. Can't believe that's not in this app.

    I thought I had read that Zuckerberg uses an Android phone now. If true, that should make them be pushing hard to get this on par with the iPhone version, at least. After all, you don't get to 500 million friends without wanting a decent Facebook app.

    When's the last time you tried it? There has been alot of updates. used to use Bloo but probably 60% of the time i clicked on a notification, it would say unavailable.

    Dev just updated app today. He probably updates quite frequently. I would say give it another shot now or wait til he implements push notification which should be soon.

    I get notifications to my replies on my comments....
    Look at your comment. Back to mine. Back to yours NOW BACK TO MINE. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if you stopped trolling and started posting useful replies it could LOOK like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're scrolling through comments, finding the ones that your comment could look like. Back at mine, what is it? It's a highly effective counter-troll. Look again, MY COMMENT IS NOW DIAMONDS.Anything is possible when you think before you comment or post. Im on a computer.

    I'm unimpressed but it is staying installed for the photo-uploads.

    I personally wish Facebook would just work on the mobile version of the site to make it a great experience from any mobile browser, then make apps that work as back-ends for photo uploads and notifications. Since they have an open chat protocol people can happily use purpose-built apps like Trillian for chat. I think it would let Facebook focus more on a good user experience without a splayed-out feature set that is inconsistent depending on your platform. I feel like a neglected step-child on Android despite this update.

    They need to incorporate the Push notifications. Having to enable text messaging or e-mails for notifications is BS. The blackberry facebook app does this very well. why not spread the love??
