  1. Yay updates! I wish the PlayBook Facebook app would get updated too.

  2. The UI has a little bit of a change. Looks smoother

  3. I noticed the UI change, I like it, seems more streamlined.

    I also noticed the app seems to be quite a bit more fluid in the menus and navigation.

  4. Glad the unfriend option is now present!
