Facebook for BlackBerry 1.5: Update and video

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

The latest version of Facebook for BlackBerry released earlier this week with a handful of practical, if not flashy, feature enhancements to partially merge your Facebook profile pictures with your BlackBerry address book, and to add your Facebook events to your native BlackBerry calendar.

Turns out, many users experienced calendar screw-ups that caused Facebook’s calendar to cannibalize the native one. In addition, the contact-syncing feature, while handy, irritatingly was sending a phone number request to those Facebook buddies you have manually associated with a BlackBerry contact. For the record, the calendar syncing issue didn’t affect our Curves tied into a corporate policy.

RIM has been quick to reissue the app with fixes. The calendar feature should play nicer with merging now if you’re installing Facebook for BlackBerry fresh, but those whose calendars have already been thrown out of whack will need to manually reset it using the BlackBerry’s advanced options (Default Services–>Reset Calendar.)

In the meantime, take a look at the app’s new features in our First Look video. Despite the initial hiccups, we recommend the update for existing Facebook for BlackBerry users, as well as for new BlackBerry owners. Via Cnet
