Facebook & iPhone - how do you use it?
I know this has been spoken about before, but I want to revisit it.
Coming from a BlackBerry, I'm use to being able to receive my messages virtually instally in the Facebook application.
Now, I know that Facebook on the iPhone does NOT support PUSH at present. So, with that said, I receive my emails instantly in ME.com and thus know I have a comment etc, on my Facebook account. Albeit, if it's a comment, there is no telling which status the person is commenting on, since the email does not detail this.
But, I would like to know how everyone else uses Facebook on their iPhone(s)? I swear when opening Facebook (latest version 3.0.1) it doesn't seem to refresh\update per se'. It is suppose to, right?
What am I missing?

I've noticed the app does not refresh/reload if you are on the same page or only go to the main page. I usually have to hit one of the quick launches and then it refreshes. Maybe 3.0.2 addresses this when you load up the app.
So I use the email notification as well. When you do the above, there will be a notifications bar at the bottom of the app. You click it and then tap on the word "wall" of that comment. It then takes you right to that comment.

If you are having issues delete the app and reinstall it; 3.02 corrects many of these issues. They were related to updating from 2.x versions and the caches could become corrupted and cause poor performance according to the developer. Supposedly if you deleted the 2.x version and then installed 3.0 you wouldn't have the problems that some have been experiencing.

I use facebook the same way everyone else does (with Me.com and then checking).. I can't wait until push notification is ready. I know the Blackberry app use to have the little "f' symbol and it would ring differently(if you set it up that way) when you got a message, comment, basically whatever you want it to notify you of. Thats one of the few things I miss about the blackberry.
