Facebook has once again been updated in the Beta Zone, this time to version 184.108.40.206. This one actually changes quite a bit within the app, so have a look at the list below and see what's been added or changed. Some of the stuff is notbaly carried over from previous builds but improved upon:
- 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
The update is showing now in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, so be sure to grab it if Facebook is your thing. If you're not seeing it yet, sit tight. Looks like it is still filtering through.
