Facebook for Android goes native, improving performance and scrolling

The Verge: Facebook today announced the launch of its new Android app, which ditches HTML 5 "webviews" in favor of native code to speed up loading photos, browsing your Timeline, and flipping through your News Feed. If Facebook's native update for iPhone this summer was any indication, Facebook for Android should offer considerable performance increases when it hits the Google Play store later today. "It's twice as fast when looking at photos and opening up your Timeline, and noticeably quicker to launch," Facebook engineer Phillip Fung says. (Android, Facebook, Services, Software)
