I had been hearing some rumors that Facebook 1.5 was supposed to be released this week or next but I guess MySpace got an update instead. RIM just let me know that they have released MySpace version 1.5 with quite a few new features and enhancements. The best one in my opinion is that you can now view your friends updates from within the application.
Major changes or enhancements:
- Friend Updates: Users can now view their MySpace Friend Updates from within the application, and click on a thumbnail of a photo in the Friend Updates to be taken to a full screen version.
- Enhanced updates and messaging: Instantaneous mobile notifications and messaging (no lag time between receiving a message online and on mobile). Users can also save a composed message/bulletin as a draft, delete and open a saved draft message to edit/send the message, and view or hide sent items.
- Enhanced band profiles: Bands can add tour dates and more profile bits to their profiles, like Upcoming Shows (displays more details on the show such as venue, date, address and cost)
- Support for French, German, Italian and Spanish languages
