Facebook for iPhone updates to v3.5, rings in several changes

Facebook’s iOS app has been updated to version 3.5, bringing in several major changes with itself.

First up, and the most important of all, there is no iPad version as yet. And for those who alternated to FaceForward (jailbreak tweak) to use Facebook for iPad, the bad news is that Facebook has removed support for iPad in this latest update of theirs. This means since there is no support from the app itself then FaceForward cannot activate it. @Chpwn warns:

Facebook removed iPad support in their latest app update. It’s not possible for FaceForward to enable something that’s no longer in the app.

Coming to the iPhone, the update brings several changes, like:

  • Made it easier to share with who you want
  • Added the ability to tag friends and places in posts
  • Added the ability to share external links from a web view
  • Added new design for Profile and Group Walls
  • Improved the sharing tool to add privacy controls on posts and match your settings on the web site

Improvements and bug fixes:

  • Improved Notifications speed
  • Fixed a number of Chat bugs
  • Made it easier to select filters in News Feed
  • Fixed a bug with the Notifications bar disappearing
  • Fixed a number of Photos bugs
  • Improved performance and stability overall

iOS 4.3.4 Jailbroken!

Just half a day adrift of iOS 4.3.4 hitting the blocks, our friends at Redmond Pie have already found a way to jailbreak it.

Enable AirPlay on ALL Apps (Hack)

When it comes to hacking your iDevice, you look further than Cydia. A developer called Zone-MR has developed a hack which enables AirPlay in ALL applications, including Apple’s browser Safari.

This is big because it means Apple could easily (and will most likely) enable it in future versions of the iOS.

You can download the hack from here: http://cydia.zone-mr.net
