    Lol poor Facebook.

    Build an app - people complain.
    Update app - people complain.

    Completely rebuild app which loads images instantly - people complain.

    +1 This is BY FAR the best the actual Facebook app has EVER been on Android... Super smooth and instant pic loading... As for those complaining about the comments Don't tap on the photo tap right below it where it says 569 like 98435 comments..... Of course the numbers will be different but you get the idea.....

    The new app is great! Everything works smooth now. Only complaint is that when the app is launched, it activates GPS, and the searching for GPS notification appears for no reason. This is wasting battery since GPS isn't needed while checking the news feed on facebook.

    Mine has always done that.... Doesn't do it everytime... I think it has something to do with the refresh rate you have FB set at.

    The GPS says searching for location almost every time I'm in the app and remains searching until I exit out.

    It used to do that pretty consistently on mine, but after an update a few months ago, it stopped doing that completely. With this new update, it's back. And my settings for the refresh rate are exactly the same - never.

    I'm pretty sure it tries to get your location upon opening the app to make checking in or posting updates with location information quicker. I wish there was a way to turn that off though. Most of the time, I'm just opening it up to check things. If I want to post something to do with my location, check for my location when I choose to do that.

    But overall, this new app is much better than anything they've had on Android before.

    I agree. The updated FB app is the best yet....Just wish it wasn't constantly searching your location!
