Facebook has recently updated its native Android app and the results are a pretty big improvement over what’s gone before. The app not only has a new design, but there are new features too, including buttons for Events and Friends Requests.

The homescreen now also includes a neat thumbnail slideshow of your friend’s recently posted pictures. You can tap once on these thumbnails to view the associated post, while tapping a second time opens a full screen version of the picture.

Facebook has also given the notification menu the once over. It’s now an inconspicuous bar that sits below the photo slideshow and opens with a single tap.

Verdict

It’s still not perfect and is missing some of the features found on the iPhone app, but the Android version is improving at a steady pace.
