We all look forward to our favorite apps getting an update. While we recently saw an update to Facebook for BlackBerry, we're seeing that there is another update (now taking it to v188.8.131.52) and it is available to download from the BlackBerry Beta Zone. The update comes with a handful of bug fixes:
- BBM Profile Update doesn't include tagged friends from Check In
- Navigation Grid Does Not Open
- If user initially canceled BBM connection then changed the option to Connect from BBM, Facebook connecting to BBM process did not appear automatically after reopen Facebook
- Replies to Events or Friend requests through the device's today view is not working
- "What's on your mind?" is cutoff with large font on publisher
- Status Publisher - Friends picker screen is unusable in landscape mode
- Skip button in BBM upgrade dialog needs to be translated
- Posts being loaded twice
- "Connecting to BBM" dialog appears every time the user opens the newsfeed or reopen Facebook on BIS SN device
- BBM connected Profile Issue: The text in the dialog that opens when clicking on the application link in the personal message should not say the app is not installed or that the app is not available in AppWorld
If you have been encountering any of these issues then get the update now. If you are not yet a member of BlackBerry Beta Zone, why not sign up today? It's free and you can get access to downloads not yet available in App World.
