RIM has pushed out another new update to the Facebook for BlackBerry application today. The update brings RIM’s version of the Facebook app a step closer to the experience that can be had on iOS devices and it adds a few new features to the app, including:
- Enhanced Birthday Feature: Customize how your BlackBerry smartphone will integrate birthdays into your calendar. Receive a friendly daily reminder, with the ability to directly write on a friend’s wall to wish them Happy Birthday.
- Improved Event Management: View Facebook event information and RSVP to events, as well as post comments to an event wall, view profiles of invited guests and receive event notifications.
- Updated Navigation Grid: Quickly and easily access key features such as your News Feed and Profile with updated icons. The Profile icon is now your current profile picture for a personalized touch.
The Facebook for BlackBerry app also gets some speed improvements and performance enhancements with this release. While it’s far from perfect, this update adds some nice features and further sets the stage for the completely redesigned version that will be debuting when BlackBerry 10 devices hit store shelves sometime next year.
