Facebook for Android

A pretty hefty update to the beta track for the Facebook app has landed, bringing with it a number of bugfixes and the ubiquitous "better battery life" line.

Here's the full changelog:

  • Improved battery usage and efficiency
  • App can now be opened in landscape
  • Album covers always displayed instead of the photo you tapped to view
  • Crash when uploading multiple photos
  • Crash after deselecting a photo from the photos composer
  • Caching bug on Timeline (so it should load faster for some users now)
  • Infinite spinner on 'Nearby Places' category selector
  • Album names won't flicker in composer view
  • Resized some stickers that were previously too big
  • Music controller notifications now responsive after dismissing in cover feed
  • High-resolution artwork now loads in music controller
  • Various crashes occurring in Home

Facebook also notes a known issue in which the "most recent" setting won't stick in the news feed.
