Despite its flaws and the complaints of its legions of users, there’s no doubt that the Facebook Android app is one of the most downloaded and popular apps available on Google Play. I mean, who among the Android users you know has not installed and not used the Facebook Android app? Nobody, I guess? That only goes to show that, despite its flaws and inconsistencies, Facebook for Android is a must have for most mobile users.
It’s a good thing then that the folks at Facebook HQ are not resting on their laurels and continue to improve the Facebook app for Android. Take the case of the current update (version 1.9.5), which was just released and is available from Google Play. It’s a pretty simple update with no new features introduced. What the patch does is fix crashes that some users experienced after logging out or when the app remained inactive for long periods.
Lastly, take note that while the Facebook app will run on Android tablets, it’s still not optimized for such Android devices. So don’t get mad when if it won’t look good on your Galaxy Tab, ASUS Transformer, or other slates that are bigger than 7-inch.
