Facebook For Android Gets A Fix

The Facebook Android app's major facelift is one of the best changes to come to the platform in a while. Reportedly due to Mark Zuckerberg's switch from iOS to the little green robot, the updated app now allows you to plan events, send messages and more straight from the app itself. While these changes are great, reports have started to sprinkle in that the app is also a gigantic battery hog.

Apparently the new app stops your smartphone from fully going into sleep mode. This drained the battery like a fiend, and made the app painfully impractical for users of battery-inefficient devices like the Evo. Thankfully, Androinica reports that the Facebook team has already seen to the problem and provided a solution.

"Hi folks, a number of you have commented on seeing a battery drain on your device since installing the new Facebook for Android app. We have identified the bug that is causing this battery drain and are working on a fix now. As soon as the patch is ready, we will push out an update. Thanks for the quick feedback and for your patience as we get this fixed!"

Update 1.3.1 is now available. Your update should download automatically, but if it doesn't you can just uninstall the app and re-download it. Kudos to Facebook for fessing up right away and providing a timely fix.
