RIM has given Facebook for BlackBerry the official update this morning. The new update brings FB for BB to 18.104.22.168. The changes include:
Email Notification Improvements
Previously, if you turned on email notifications using the Facebook.com website, then logged out and logged back into Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone, your email notification settings would be turned off. Now, with Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones 22.214.171.124, email notifications are left enabled if you change email notification settings using Facebook.com, then log out and log back in to Facebook on your BlackBerry smartphone.
Previously, if you set the background polling option to Never, then logged out and logged back into Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones, the polling setting would be set to 10 minutes instead of Never. This issue has been corrected so the background polling option will remain at the Never setting.
Photo Upload Freeze Fix
In the past, users may have seen their BlackBerry smartphone freeze when sending a photo to Facebook from the Media folder on their BlackBerry smartphone. This issue has been corrected by this maintenance release so no further freezing should occur.
This update looks like mostly bug fixes and performance improvements. It looks as if some users are getting build .28 and some .27. We aren’t sure why this is happening but we recommend that you just check back to App World later to download the most updated version. Hopefully this update brings us a step closer to the totally redesigned Facebook 2.0. If you want the update you can head over to App World to get it.
