Facebook for iPhone 3.1.3 Brings Video Watching, Event Walls, and Better Pictures

With nearly 55 million monthly active users, Facebook for iPhone has continued to grow as an increasingly primary way that people access Facebook. Now, Facebook has just released version 3.1.3, which adds a few new features that people have been asking for and that should further increase engagement:

  • You can now watch Facebook videos on Facebook for iPhone
  • You can now view and write on walls of Facebook Events
  • Uploaded photos are now 720 pixels wide

Nothing in the release indicates that Facebook for iPhone has been updated for iOS4 compatibility, and Facebook users are still waiting for Facebook to better support the iPad. We’ll let you know as Facebook talks more about its iPhone and iPad product roadmap.

Just a few weeks ago, Facebook launched its “0” mobile site in partnership with many carriers around the world.

Additional bug fixes included in this release:

  • Could not comment on photos accessed from Notifications
  • Could not upload photos smaller than a certain size
  • No more than 2 notifications were highlighted as unread
  • Status updates appeared out of order in News Feed
  • Broken photo album links in News Feed
  • Birthdays view had months in wrong order
  • Last section of friend list was incomplete if you had fewer than 8 friends
  • Notes with non-ASCII text were cut off at the end
