    To Apple for review... in case anyone was interested. Just a reminder - push notifications will not be included until 3.1.

    I'm rather annoyed that PUSH will not be released. I guess coming from a BlackBerry, you'd think these things would come along a bit quicker...

    I know, I should just get over it...

    Is this a major overhaul, or does it just make it 3.0 compatibale?

    The guy coding it says it has taken so long because he wanted to really get rid of all the bugginess that has plagued the app since 2.0 was released. His twitter post says he is more excited for 3.1 update which he will start tomorrow, with push and I guess some other stuff. As long as the bugs are gone I'm happy, I think facebook with push could get annoying fast and I already have push chat from Beejive.

    I always thought of it the other way around... updates on the BB are far and few.

    I don't mind waiting for push, especially since I have the notifications hitting my email. Almost the same thing.

    I have the email alert thing going, too. Does me just fine for now. But yeah, I am looking forward to this update. The current version is... lacking.

    Since I receive instant emails from Facebook, that helps.

    BUT, what I can't stand is the emails NEVER have the respective subject for the status the person is replying to. I tend to have 3-4 status' a day. So, from time to time it's hard to tell what status they are commenting on...

    Make sense?

    Anybody got any specs on new features included in this release?
    Facebook for iPhone: Facebook for iPhone 3.0 | Facebook

    Facebook for iPhone 3.0 is coming very soon. I can't predict an exact date when I will submit to Apple, but I can say that I am about 98% done. So what's new in this update?

    1. The "new" News Feed
    2. Like
    3. Events (including the ability to RSVP)
    4. Notes
    5. Pages
    6. Create new photo albums
    7. Upload photos to any album
    8. Zoom into photos
    9. Easier photo tagging
    10. Profile Pictures albums
    11. A new home screen for easy access to all your stuff, search, and notifications
    12. Add your favorite profiles and pages to the home screen
    13. Better Notifications (they link to the comments so you can reply)
    14. Quickly call or text people right from the Friends page
    15. Messages you are typing will be restored if you quit or are interrupted by a phone call

    The one feature everyone is asking for, Push Notifications, is in development but it won't make it into 3.0. You can expect it in a 3.1 update later this summer.

    Think a jailbroken iPhone 3G will be able to upload videos taken using Cycorder onto Facebook 3.0 when it's released? Or will that only be available to users of unmodified 3GS's?

    It will come from your photos app. So if Cycorder stores them there, you should be able to unless it's going to have something to detect whether or not that feature is available to you (if you have a 2G or 3G and not a 3GS).

    If you go onto the Facebook for iPhone page on Facebook, they have screen prints now. It looks good. I'm really looking forward to getting this update. How many bets on how long apple will take to approve. According to his post on Facebook, the developer submitted it on Sunday. Do you think we can expect it by the end of this week? I hope so.

    3.1 seems to be the more anticipated update.
