Research In Motion (RIM) has just released a new version of Facebook for BlackBerry. The latest iteration of the application comes with many new features and capabilities, which improve the overall performance and functionality of Facebook.
Unfortunately, the application is not yet available for the general public, but BlackBerry enthusiasts who own valid Beta Zone accounts will be able to download Facebook application for free.
The latest version of Facebook
brings the following changes:
- Ability to see the details of an event (basic information only: times, venue, description);
- Ability to see the list of events that a user has created or is invited to in chronological order (not clickable items);
- Ability to see a filtered guest list for the event by RSVP (Going/Not Attending/Maybe/Not Responded/All Invited);
- Ability to see events shown as quickly as possible;
- Event notifications open the new event screens;
- Ability to change the RSVP status of an event;
- Ability to link all Facebook friends' birthdays to your BlackBerry Calendar;
- Previously integrated birthdays in the calendar are removed when birthday integration settings are changed;
- Ability to select which friends’ birthdays appear in the device calendar;
- Ability to see friends birthdays in chronological order from the current date;
- Ability to see friends birthday’s grouped with date headers;
- Previously contact-linked birthdays are pre-selected.
It will probably take some time until this version of Facebook for BlackBerry
goes live in the App World.
In fact, there’s a high chance that RIM will continue to update the application only in BlackBerry Beta Zone, so we might see a completely different version being released in App World.
Those who already have a BlackBerry Beta Zone account can now download Facebook for BlackBerry 220.127.116.11 for free. Check it out here
