Using the proprietary Facebook app on Android has been as useful as pulling out a child's tooth without using Novocaine. It was simply easier to just go to the Web browser app and go to Facebook.com. Finally, that has changed.
The new Facebook Android app looks a whole lot more like the iPhone version of Facebook, though it still has some quirks and still cannot do everything that Facebook on the Web can do. But it's an improvement.
Users also can't use Facebook chat on the updated Android app, and it doesn't provide access to the "Notes" feature.
All that said, it's a million times better than it was previously, and you can at least navigate your way through the major parts of the social networking site with relative ease.
For me, personally, it still just feels better to go to Facebook.com from the Android's browser. I don't understand why Facebook's developers feel like they need to radically change the interface that works so well online for a mobile phone.
