Facebook For iPhone Updated; Hidden iPad code Removed

Facebook has released a new version of their iPhone app.

Facebook 3.5 brings some new features such as the ability to tag friends and places in photos and finally the ability to add privacy controls on posts. Facebook has fixed a number of annoying bugs and  improved the overall performance and stability of the iPhone app.

Facebook app v3.5:

[ Made it easier to share with who you want – Added the ability to tag friends and places in posts – Added the ability to share external links from a web view – Added new design for Profile and Group Walls – Improved the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site

Improvements and bug fixes:  – Improved Notifications speed – Fixed a number of Chat bugs – Made it easier to select filters in News Feed – Fixed a bug with the Notifications bar disappearing – Fixed a number of Photos bugs – Improved performance and stability overall ]

This is not however the Facebook’s iPad app. In fact Facebook has gone out of it’s way to removed the iPad app code from the latest version. That means if you update to this new version. The jailbreak tweak FaceForward to enable the Facebook for iPad app won’t work. So I would skip updating the app on your iPad for now.
