Facebook 10.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 002)Facebook 10.0 for iOS (iPhone screenshot 001)

Facebook has issued a major version 10.0 update to its free iOS client which now allows you to create posts even when you’re without an Internet connection. Posts created in the offline mode will be saved as drafts and the app will automatically publish them when you’re back online.

Moreover, the refreshed iPhone and iPad application now makes it easy to see what your posts will look like on Facebook before publishing.

This edition of the software also includes certain News Feed improvements. Facebook 10.0 is now live in the App Store so grab it free now and check out the new features…

According to TechCrunch, Facebook is also testing a new feature code-named Facebook Now that centers around Google Now-like cards that appear after you post something.

Facebook explains:

These cards can help you discover information about where you are or what to do next, or inspire conversations with your friends around you.

This feature respects all existing privacy settings, and the card will only show you information that you could already see elsewhere on Facebook.

We wanted to make it easier for you to interact with your friends about the things you’re doing and the places you are visiting.

This is what these cards look like.

This functionality should be a silent backend update so could soon start seeing these cards in the iPhone and iPad app.

Your Facebook 10.0 changelog:

• Review what your post will look like and choose whether to remove any suggested links before sharing what you’re reading, watching or listening to
• Create posts even when your connection is weak or you’re in airplane mode, and they’ll be shared once your connection gets strong enough
• Improvements to make News Feed load faster, especially on older phones and tablets

Download Facebook free in the App Store.

If you’re not on iOS 7, the good news is that the universal app still requires iOS 6.0 or later.

    They moved the “Most Recent” option to the “More” tab. Anyone know how to make “Most Recent” the default?

    • Tony Trenkle Jr.

      You beat me to commenting on this! It’s harder to get to now! Wtf!

    • John Kerby

      Can’t find most recent anywhere

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        It’s under more and then feeds.

      • Guest

        Maybe im blind but in my version on iphone i cant find “more” anywere…

      • Tony Trenkle Jr.

        On the bottom, far right.

      • John Kerby

        I don’t have feeds

      • Jackie Delk

        Turn your device completely off and then restart it. Ten check under more, then feeds

      • XboxOne

        People have reported it not being in the Facebook app at all.

      • Jackie Delk

        XboxOne – It is there. I found it after I shut down my phone completely and then turned it back on. Click on the word “more” in the bottom right hand corner. Then scroll down that page until you see the word “feeds.” Tap the right arrow and you will see the words “most recent.” Tap on it and you will see “most recent.”

      • XboxOne

        Will it stay at Recent after I close then re-enter the FB app?

      • Jackie Delk

        It looks as though you have to do this each time you open the app.

    • Jacek Witkowski

      This some boulsh*t!! Why facebook forcing me to to do stuff… i dont want to use messenger.. they keep pushing.. i want to use “most recent”.. they delete this option at all. Facebook – you doing it wrong. Is there is any good alternative in app store for native facebook app? Becouse (in desperation) im thinking to start using web app.

      • XboxOne

        Just use the Facebook website. FB apps just don’t work the same and have constant refreshing of Timeline.

    • Yeah, they’ve made a real cock-up. I hate this. I don’t know why but they seem to have a vendetta against Latest Posts. They’ve always made it difficult to use as the primary feed. Hopefully a Flex/Cydia tweak can fix this pisstake

  • jack

    Damn iDB you are fast. Anyways FB is slowly dying whatsapp is the new social thing

    • Anthony Snyder

      whatsapp is just for texting… and it’s private.

      Facebook is public sharing for the most part.

      • jack

        that’s exactly what ppl want back.. their privacy

      • Anthony Snyder

        I don’t know about you but some people like public sharing. Just look at Instagram..

  • McBobson

    Does this update remove Facebook messenger?

  • McBobson

    ” Facebook 10.0 is now live in the App Store so grab it free now and check out the new features…”

    I think you mean grab it for free.

  • Scott Hendrickson

    Someone really needs to make a tweak to make “most recent” the default news feed in Facebook!!!!!

    • XboxOne

      This. Now.

  • Biscuit

    I find moving the recent posts in the more section totally counter productive. I don’t understand the reasoning behind it.

  • yoshif8tures

    This app is shit. Crashes and doesn’t even open. Tried reinstalling it and rebooted as well. Avoid it till it’s stable.

    • XboxOne

      Keeps crashing on me too WTF.

    • XboxOne

      I figured it out. Just disable all Facebook tweaks in Flex.

      • yoshif8tures

        Thanks that’s worked. Though now the ads are back..

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    To those who can’t find the “Most Recent” tab it’s under the more section on the bottom. And there should be a section called feeds. I seriously hope this gets fixed but I thought I’d show you guys in case it doesn’t.

  • David Gitman

    How about faster loading ?

  • Fran

    The download removed Facebook when I updated it, now I can’t even open Facebook from my App Store

  • kryonso .

    Can anyone help me out. Pretty much the main thing i used FB for nowdays is the feed “pages and public figures” so i could find out what my favourite bands etc were up to. Now the drop down is gone and when i tap on ‘pages and pub figures’ in the side menu there is nothing there except a prompt to ‘add friends to see them in this view’ which is stupid cos friends arent public figures ffs! So yeah i want the ‘Pages Feed’ on mobile like on the web version but i cant find how to access it anywhere?!?
