Heres some updates from the developers twitter

FB app update: polishing graphics, translations, bug fixing, etc. these things take time. 98% was a bad estimate, sorry. Gotta get it right.12:48 AM Jul 25th from Tweetie

Just got done adding birthdays to the FB app. This is what I do for fun on a saturday night.8:47 AM Aug 2nd from Tweetie


Sorry for not giving an ETA, but I want to ship when it is ready, not just to meet a deadline.1:40 AM Aug 3rd from Tweetie

Every time I think I'm done, I find another thing I want to make better, more stable, more full-featured, better looking. It's a huge app.1:40 AM Aug 3rd from Tweetie

I really do appreciate all the enthusiasm and the feedback! I want to make you guys happy and forget about the bugginess of the 2.x app.3:44 AM Aug 3rd from Tweetie

Don't remind me. I've stopped using facebook on my phone just because it sucks. I'll wait until the update.

I'm rather impressed with the Facebook application. Considering the other shiite that I've seen in iTunes, I'd say that it does quite a bit. While it doesn't upload pictures, I just got the email which gives you an email address to upload your pictures and it works great. Has chat, has mail, see your friends, updates, notifications... not bad at all.

Its so limited compared to what most people need. Lately its been so buggy that I have been using the mobile web version rather than the app, or the iPhone web version.

Wow, the app looks totally badass in Japanese.4:13 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

The app is pretty much done - we're just working on translating it into a bunch of langauges.4:15 AM Aug 8th from Tweetie

That's what I'm hoping anyway. Since it was initially free the update should be free but nothing surprises me anymore. Know what I mean?

Ofcourse it will be free the developer works for Facebook and they don't charge for anything else, so I can't see them charging for a iPhone app when all the other facebook apps for diffrent platforms are free

I know he just submitted it to Apple. But, does anyone know if it will support PUSH?
