They forgot to mention on the change log:
- Fired all devs who couldn't code themselves out of a paper bag and hired new ones that actually know what they're doing.

Downloading.

For one of the most popular apps on the App Store, it's always been riddled and plagued with bugs and instability. Just seeing "Improved performance and stability overall" gives me a glimmer of hope.

I get the same problem. It's a pain having the chat icon on the second page. Especially because we don't have the separate message / chat app in New Zealand yet.

Press and hold on an icon, they will wiggle and you can move them just like on the iOS home screen.

Oh my gosh, the app actually feels usable now!

The copy/paste thing is pathetic though... Could Facebook really not implement this standard feature of iOS? It's one of the things the iPhone had over Android phones! ;o

About time. I can't believe that they've neglected these bugs for so long. They really need to step up their iOS development team.
