Facebook Announces New Versions of the Facebook for iPhone and Android Mobile Apps

Facebook has announced new versions of the Facebook for iPhone and Facebook for Android mobile applications.  The new iPhone app will include support for the new Groups feature. Places will now have better tagging, including tagging people after check-ins, tagging people from the news feed. When you checkin, you can now add a photo.

“The Android app has been behind” says CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Right before Facebook was going to launch the Android app which was being developed with an Android app shop, Google bought the shop, setting Facebook back. However, the new Android app is ready and will include support for Places and Groups.

We’ll have more details as they become available.
