Posted on January 6, 2010 by eli courey
Facebook has released v3.1 of its free social networking app for the iPhone and iPod touch. Added in the upgrade are push notifications, which signal new messages, comments, photo tags and the like without having to open the app itself. Notifications can be toggled on or off by category in a device’s Settings menu.
Also new is the ability to sync Facebook friends with a handheld’s Address Book, keeping contact information consistent. The app is a 1.5MB download from the App Store. Users must be running iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
