Wait no more, an official Facebook application for Android has been released. Though we've been making do with third-party Facebook applications for Android for quite some time now, we were always green with envy to see other smartphone platforms get official apps while Android got tossed to the side.
In the Facebook application for Android, users can check their news feed, view friends' walls and info, add friends, 'Like' things, post and comment on status updates, take and upload photos, and even check up to 125 friends' phone numbers. Neater features include a shake-to-refresh for the news feed and a notification widget that can be added to the desktop. No Facebook chat yet.
We're not the biggest Facebook users (twitter is our game!) so please share your thoughts regarding the official Facebook application for Android. The Facebook application for Android is available in Android Market for free.
We should note that there are some whispers saying that this Facebook app isn't exactly developed by Facebook. Though Android Market lists the application's developer as Facebook, the official web page of the application states that it wasn't developed by Facebook. Weird. Most likely, the application was developed by Google with Facebook approval.
