Facebook Launches iOS App 5.0 for iPhone and iPad

Today Facebook released Facebook 5.0 for iOS. With the new version the Facebook App is twice as fast as the previous version when launching the app, scrolling through News Feed and opening photos in feed. Here are what's new in the new Facebook 5.0 for iOS:

Scrolling through news feed is faster than ever:
As you scroll down your news feed, all your friends' stories appear faster than ever. A banner lets you know when new stories come in, and you can tap once to immediately see the latest updates.

New banner lets you tap to quickly see more stories - no need to refresh

Photos open fast and close with one downward swipe:
Tap on any photo and it opens right away. Pull down to close it with a single swipe.

Instant access to your notifications
The app opens much faster and your news feed and notifications load right when you open Facebook.

You can download Facebook 5.0 for free from the iTunes App Store:
