RIM has announced an app for Facebook at CTIA. Now, Facebook already has a mobile site which works pretty well, but a full-blown app catered to quick browsing of friends’ feeds and allowing for picture uploading right to your photo albums… well, that’s just awesome. You can get home screen notifications now, get a full text view of messages, wall posts and everything else, friends status and information, and photo uploading and tagging.
Great little feature here: you can send messages even when offline, it’ll just go out when a connection is established like your regular e-mail. I’m one of those suckers who’s got a Facebook tab opened all day long, just waiting for the BlackBerry to buzz with an SMS notification, but now it’ll be right there on my home screen. If you’re on Facebook, check out BBCool’s group. We post all the day’s news there if you’re looking for the bite-sized version. You can download the app over the air at www.blackberry.com/facebook/mobiledownload. Make sure you’ve got OS 4.2 or higher, presuming your carrier supports it.
