    Ive never had a problem with facebook app with ios 5 betas.
    Its a sluggish app to begin with but not because of ios 5 beta.
    Yes it's sluggish but it performs even worse on iOS 5, I had to uninstall it because it was so bad. Same app version on my wife's iPhone 4 with OS 4.3.5 works much better.

    The Facebook app is one of the worst ever designed/written for iOS. With that said, it worse on iOS 5 - it's has become completely unusable. It refuses to update, and I can literally watch my battery drain while trying to use it. Uninstalling and re-installing it is good for ONE update, then the problems start all over again.

    I can also confirm that it is at least usable on my wife's iPhone (iOS 4.3.3). I've been looking for an alternative app so I can trash the "official" FB app completely. (And there aren't even words for those clamoring for an "official" FB app for the iPad.)

    It's being released on Apple's schedule. Translation: Who knows. It will be here when it gets here.

    I guess I don't understand folk's lives hanging on every beta release.

    Maybe today. Maybe not.

    It looks like a bust... now after 4:30 on the left coast, and nada. Just checked the Dev site and no indication of anything happening over there. So much for B8 last Friday and GM today.

    Still happy with B7 - stil very, very solid for me.

    Don't suppose you heard anything to suggest its still on the way? Saturday release happened before...

    I'm thinking beta 8 got skipped for whatever reason, perhaps waiting on GM at the launch announcement, perhaps early October? If it does launch almost right away though doesn't give long for final apps to be submitted and approved.
