Facebook's Android app just got a little bit better as the social giant has pushed an update that adds in the ability to tag your friends in posts from within the app. Previously, you would have to load up the full website to get that functionality. As a reminder, to tag a friend you start by typing the "@" symbol and immediately start typing out the person's name. A box showing the most likely results pops up below the text entry field and you can close in on the person you want by typing more of their name.
Other features of version 1.5.3 include a "Find Friends" feature and the ability to add your phone number to your profile plus a smattering of bug fixes. Open the Android Market and go to "My Apps" to get the update or check out the download links past the break. Thanks to ZSearcy for the tip!
