Facebook's Updated iOS App Is Fully Native And Free Of HTML5

Facebook just released its updated iOS app — and it claims to be twice as fast as before. The reason for the speed boost? Instead of serving as a container for HTML5 content, its now fully native.

Among the improvements to the app is the ability to scroll faster through your News Feed, access new stories and notifications without having to refresh, a nicer and more user-friendly photo UI, and Timeline profile pages for the iPad app. You can download it now from the iTunes App Store.
