Facebook for BlackBerry Updated to v1.8.0.49!

Facebook bb This update was supposed to come out back in May but it is finally here! You can download it now in App World though it is not showing up for everybody including myself. I am not sure what is new in this version but back in March it was rumored to bring:

  • Faster load times
  • Video uploading
  • Replacing BIS-E notifications with BlackBerry Push APIs

Let us know what you find in the new version. Download it at this link.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  1. Can’t seem go inbox.. Maybe I will battery pull. But its almost no lag!

  2. How to upload video? I dun think the feature is in..

  3. AppWorld still shows v1.7.0.22 in AppWorld 2.0. It’s still not available for everyone.

  4. Wooohooooo. Works soooo much faster. No more hung app when sending a message. Thank you fb!

  5. I heard that this v1.8 is slow on torch.. But on my 8900, 9000 and 9700 is berry fast

  6. so much better. fast and smooth. keep good work. but i still waiting the facebook chat function> :p

  7. its same sh…
    bit quicker but no video upload plus i dnt get all notif so really dispontd

  8. Shows as available on both my Storm and my Tour. Didn’t bother trying to DL though since I don’t Facebook and my Storm especially is short on RAM.

    The DL is 1.4MB and is #1 on the Top Free list when I looked.

  9. For those whom don’t see the update, please try this:
    1) “alt + r s t” to reset cache.
    If still don’t appear,
    2) Battery pull

  10. No love for Sprint 9650. Hopefully all 9650 owners will get this soon.

  11. piece of shit app world is showing “Invalid signature in response”

  12. Possible bug: (on a Bold 9000 on 5.0.822 OS)

    I cannot view comments properly- eg: I made a comment on a friend’s status, and exited the app… 20 minutes later someone commented after me; when I opened Facebook, I could see the friend’s status (original post), but it would not load any comments, including the one I had made… this problem was limited to friend’s profiles only, I could see my own status updates and comments from friends [on my updates]

    I’m curious to see if anyone else experiences this or whether I’m an isolated incident.

  13. Here’s what you need to know about the new version:

    * Improved News Feed, loading and scrolling

    * Better performing Friend List

    * Enhanced Photo Viewing, loading and navigation

    * Improved Photo uploading

     

    Users running device software4.6.x can now receive Facebook notifications without associating an email address with your BlackBerry device with bundle 1.8.0.49. For the best experience, users running device software 4.5 will need to use bundle 1.8.0.48 and anyone running device software 6.0 should run 1.8.0.38 (you can however upgrade to 1.8.0.49).

  14. Drains my memory! I’ve had to do a battery pull everyday since ive downloaded the new version. if i go under status it says i have 0 bytes free, even if i started out the day with over 14000000. total crap.
