Facebook have rolled out their latest update for iOS, 5.1. Some of the features we think are great but are by no means new. It seems that Facebook are using apps as somewhat of a testing ground. If you already have the Facebook camera app and the Facebook messenger app just imagine that they have essentially now rolled them up into this latest Facebook app. As we said, not new, but definitely handy and means less applications on your device. 

In a roll-out that seems to weigh heavily on images and chat, the new features include: 

-swipe left anywhere in the app to quickly see who's available to chat

-add friends that you message the most to the top of your favourites

-add multiple photos to an album

-give real gifts to friends using Facebook gifts (US only)


Facebook iOS update 5.1 for iPhone and iPad


As we said, these features are not necessarily new in that they pre existed in the form of a standalone app, but without doubt, having them all rolled into one app is very handy. Thanks Facebook.
