Facebook for Windows Phone gets a major speed boost

Facebook recently gave their Android app a major speed improvement, and now they are working on Windows Phone. Facebook was one of the very first apps to be optimized for Windows Phone 8, which already makes it one of the fastest apps available. A new update turns the speed up to 11 and really makes the app fly.

Performance tweaks is listed in the changelog, but we have to admit it seems like they did more than just “tweak.” Facebook now seems almost as fast and fluid as the native People Hub. It really is a breathe of fresh air ¬†when compared with how slow and clunky the app used to feel. The People Hub used to be a lot more useful, but now with apps like Facebook, Twabbit, and Rowi getting major improvements we’re using it less and less.

    Just a FYI, this app is actually made by Microsoft, not Facebook.
