Facebook for iPhone 3.1.3 Brings Video Watching, Event Walls, and Better Pictures

With nearly 55 million monthly active users, Facebook for iPhone has continued to grow as an increasingly primary way that people access Facebook. Now, Facebook has just released version 3.1.3, which adds a few new features that people have been asking for and that should further increase engagement:

  • You can now watch Facebook videos on Facebook for iPhone
  • You can now view and write on walls of Facebook Events
  • Uploaded photos are now 720 pixels wide

Nothing in the release indicates that Facebook for iPhone has been updated for iOS4 compatibility, and Facebook users are still waiting for Facebook to better support the iPad. We’ll let you know as Facebook talks more about its iPhone and iPad product roadmap.

Just a few weeks ago, Facebook launched its “0″ mobile site in partnership with many carriers around the world.

Additional bug fixes included in this release:

  • Could not comment on photos accessed from Notifications
  • Could not upload photos smaller than a certain size
  • No more than 2 notifications were highlighted as unread
  • Status updates appeared out of order in News Feed
  • Broken photo album links in News Feed
  • Birthdays view had months in wrong order
  • Last section of friend list was incomplete if you had fewer than 8 friends
  • Notes with non-ASCII text were cut off at the end

    Problem with Facebook for iPhone 3.1.3 on iPad: video doesn’t load the video player. The video plays on iPhone. Anyone else?

    Its most charming feature is that it crashes every time I try to update my status.

    I can no longer access several of my games, I used to be able for example play mafia wars and it worked pretty good Now you can’t. Nice job

    have you experienced some errors like you can’t go to your profile after updating to 3.1.3?

  7. KGB says:

    I upload a photo and it shows on my wall until the page is reloaded, then it’s gone. I can go to Profile and see my status posts and none of them with a pic is there.
    It doesn’t show any errors, they’re just not THERE!
    Why am I able to see them on my wall, then they’re gone after refreshing page?
    I can do it on my computer but not on my iPhone.
    I also can’t get my phone to do anything with iTunes unless I go thru sync with my laptop.
    I have broadband wifi so it’s not connection speeds.

  8. Scribs says:

    KGB I’m getting exactly the same problem, they upload but disappear on refresh!

  9. AAIRSICK says:

    KGB and Scribs; same problem here – - but no one knows why and I can’t find a solution. Someone suggested it is a privacy settings issue, but nothing there changed this phenomena. WHOOSH – posted photo to status update, reload and GONE! Removed from status, but left in mobile uploads file folder. ANSWER PLEASE? I removed the FB app, and reloaded both from the iPhone as well as iTunes, no luck there either.
