Facebook Updates Facebook for Windows Phone with Full Support for Mango

When it comes to apps update, Facebook has always been appeared as a slow initiator. We always find the social networking giant lagging behind to update their native apps for several smartphone platforms. For instance, Facebook took too long to bring its Android app in order with iOS app. The iPad app had been ready since May, reports claimed. However, Facebook managed to launch it only in October. Similarly, the Windows Phone app waited too long to get the attention from social networking giant and only managed to get it now. The updated Facebook for Windows Phone app comes with a support for Windows Phone 7.5 Mango (released last month).

Apart from support for Windows Phone 7.5, the updated version 2.2 is also equipped with a host of features including: notifications support and ability to pin tiles to the Start screen. These features are included because of high demand from users.

According to Windows Phone Marketplace:

Facebook for Windows Phone makes it easy to stay connected and share information with friends. You can post status updates, check your news feed, review your upcoming events, manage your inbox, upload photos, publish notes, accept friend requests, and look at your friends’ photos, walls and info.

To check the reliability of the updated app, we have checked it on Windows Phone Mango based HTC 7 Trophy and what we have realized that it works as described.

As for new features, we believe that these features should have been included in earlier releases. The current update will enable you to pin messages, events, photos and even news feed on the Start screen for quick navigation. The new feature also offers support for toast + tile notifications. If we compared Facebook for Windows Phone app with Facebook for iOS or Android app, there is still a lot of margin for improvement in the current update. We hope Facebook will do it best to improve its apps to give users and enjoyable experience.

Facebook has over 800 million users and if you are one of them and owned a smartphone as well, then you should likely to download the app.
