facebookFacebook has updated its Facebook for iOS app to version 6.6, adding new options to allow users to edit published posts and comments on their iOS devices. First introduced on the desktop version of Facebook, the editing tools let spelling errors and other mistakes be corrected, though edited posts are denoted by an "Edited" tag.

The app update also lets users post images within comments and it includes new emoticon wall posting options. Emoticon posts were first introduced in June, but have thus far been limited to status updates. The emoticon icons are used to give details on what a user is feeling, watching, reading, drinking, eating, listening to, or playing, and can now be included in wall posts.

Along with new posting features, Facebook made its mobile privacy options easier to access, offering a lock icon in the navigation menu that displays both privacy options and frequently asked questions.

What's New in Version 6.6
- Edit your posts and comments, and tap to see all your changes
- Add a photo when you comment
- Express yourself with icons when you post to someone's timeline (English only)
- Get to privacy shortcuts by tapping the lock by your name in the main menu
- Bug fixes

Facebook is said to be working on a more significant iOS app update that will include the company’s Graph Search feature, first introduced earlier this year, along with an update for its Messenger app that will include iOS contacts integration.

Facebook is a universal app that can be downloaded for free from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Interesting. The top bar seems to be acting like the top bar in Safari...

When I scroll, the top part of the app hides itself.

My number one gripe about this app is the fact that I have to routinely set my newsfeed to most recent. I have offered money - I think I got up to $10 - if someone can just simply tell me how to set my newsfeed preference once and never have to mess with it again.

FINALLY,

you can now view a photo "full screen" without cropping or text/button overlays. Previously if you tapped on the photo to make the text / Done button go away, the photo would expand to remove any letterboxing, cropping off the other two sides. It was impossible to view the whole photo full screen unless the aspect ratio matched the phone's screen exactly. This is now fixed.

That is the kind of bug that makes you wonder if they ever even test the apps in real life.
