Microsoft announced the availability of a new version of the Facebook application for Windows Phone 8, which is now in version 5.0.
After several months of beta testing, the new Facebook application for Windows Phone 8 is now available for download in version 5.0. An update will be available to users of Windows Phone 7.x later this summer.
This version features a new user interface and an optimized navigation. In addition to support for high-definition photos, we find the insertion of the Timeline and the ability to share publications.
Similarly like versions for iOS and Android, Facebook for Windows Phone has two side left and right dynamic panels. The first list its shortcuts to various applications (News, Messages, Nearby, Events …) while the other returns the contacts connected to the network and with which it is possible to initiate a conversation. The invitation management is carried out from the horizontal bar at the top of the screen.
Through the options we find the ability to set notifications or image based background on the latest photos posted. The user will also be able to enable or disable the geo-location or refresh the contents by shaking the device. Find more information on this page.
