    If you're a fan of the iOS Facebook app, you may like some of today's improvements to the app. I'm happy to see that more and more of the functionality of the Share button on the desktop site coming to the iOS app.

    Here's what's new:
    • Photo viewer button lets you save, share or make profile picture
    • Improved places editing when checking in on iPhone
    • Events load faster on iPhone

    The 6.1 icon was annoying, I hated the silver edge around it. Thank goodness it was fixed an hour or two later...

    I wonder if that's the only reason they released 6.1.1?

    Maybe I'll just stay at 6.1. In a few years, the 6.1 icon is going to be a collector's item worth upwards of $50,000...

    I kinda like that icon, I wish I wasn't asleep when the update came out, and then the updated update. I missed getting that icon at all. If you were jailbroken I'd ask you to email it to me so I could use it. ;)

    It's still buggy IMO. I hate it when you share a pic or link from your feed only to have the app refresh your timeline. It also likes to refresh sometimes when task switching to a different app and then back to the fb app. :mad: A couple of updates ago that seemed to finally be fixed but now it's back, at leas on my device.

    I wonder if this new update finally resolved Hondamaker 's issues?

    Apparently they accidentally used their development version of the icon instead of the final version icon. Hence the update to change it.

    Looks like Facebook gets perks from Apple. Apple certainly fast-tracked that update for them!
