facebook 6-6

Facebook for iOS received a significant update this afternoon, bringing the app to version 6.6. The update brings about a number of handy new features, including the ability to edit published posts and comments.

First introduced back in September on the desktop version of the social network, the new editing option allows users to correct spelling and other mistakes in both their posts or comments from their iOS devices…

Here’s the full 6.6. change log:

– 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 

It’s worth noting that when you edit a post, Facebook will automatically denote it with an ‘Edit’ tag. The app update also allows users to post images within comments and it includes some new options for posting emoticons.

Earlier this month, a report surfaced claiming that Facebook was testing a new version of its iOS app with integrated Graph Search support. And last week, the social network announced it’s removing a popular privacy option.

If you’re interested, you can download the latest version of Facebook from the App Store for free.

      This is the 2nd time it became free. Not really free with all those IAP.

  • David Gitman

    I hate the loading times on my iphone 4 :/

    • Palmer Paul

      Its faster to go to the mobile site in your browser than to use the mobile app (of course you’ll lose some features on the mobile site though).

      • David Gitman

        yeah 🙁 cant they optimize or something?

    • leart za jmi

      If you want a faster facebook app and you are jailbroken, just install a older version thats need less memory to work, i use facebook 5.6 and i am not missing that much 🙂

      • David Gitman

        oh cool

      • Palmer Paul

        How can you install a later version?

      • leart za jmi

        The problem is ti install a older version for a app, if you are jailbroken find the ipa sync with itune and done (appsync needed). To install a later version just upgrade the app

    • Raúl Díez Martín

      should have not update to iOS 7 then…

      • David Gitman

        I saved blobs and I downgraded to 5.1.1 best version ever

      • Raúl Díez Martín

        That means you have only the cydia valid blobs. iOS 6.1.2 is the key on the iPhone 4, at least for app compatibility.

      • David Gitman

        I downgraded to 6.1.3 as well

      • Raúl Díez Martín

        But there is not untethered jailbreak for that version…

      • David Gitman

        I dont need jailbreak on my 4 .. its making him lag worse

      • Raúl Díez Martín

        Then maybe you don’t need to install too many crap tweaks from Cydia. Mine works smooth as hell!

      • leart za jmi

        i think the same, the most complete ios, google maps, youtube etc, but now the most of apps require ios 6 and later this is a gap :S

  • What used to be an app that hardly saw updates is becoming something that sees them fairly often. This is a decent little update.

  • Ehab

    Is it crashing with any one or is it crashing only with me ??

    • Vaibhav

      Yeah..same here….as soon as i click anything it crashes.

  • Mohsin

    I’m still using the older version of facebook app with 3 icons on the top. The new update has some nice features but i don’t like the bottom menu bar because it hides all the the menu; messages, Notifications when the keyboard is in use.

  • Research Rants

    Wonder if they’ve fixed “most recent” yet. Doubt it.

  • sirwhistle

    Can anyone tell me if the editing is working on there iphone 5s on iOS 7.03? It works on my i5 but not on i5s anyone?
