    I haven't updated my Facebook app for months because of how bad everyone has said it became. I've been hearing from people with other Android phones lately that it's better now. Can anyone with a Razr/MAXX chime in?

    The new update is very smooth on my Maxx. I'm pretty impressed with it compared to previous versions. All my posts actually update now, I can magically check-in, and tagging has improved. A good update.

    It seems slower to me. Longer to load, inluding the pics. I wish I hadn't updated.

    Not! If you pull up the app, under reviews tap 'see more'. Then tap 'options' to the right and select 'from this device only'..the reviews from RAZR owners are terrible.

    Not! It should be disabled and remain disabled.

    Picture loading is horribly slow, almost unusable. Really unhappy with it.

    Checking on recent reviews for the Facebook app on our phones in the App Store, it looks like the app is actually worth updating. Can anyone confirm this?

    I've never used the fb app unless I'm uploading photos to it. I just go on chrome to go on fb.

    Yesterday's update was a HUGE improvement. I've had the app since June and this is far and away the best version yet.

    Agreed. It seems to load faster and I like the layout improvements

    It's somewhat better but still not what it should be. Pics and posts still load slow sometimes and other times they load fast.
