Android Facebook App Update Brings Push & Much Anticipated Chat!

| December 14, 2010 | 1 Reply

I can finally stop perusing the Android Market for Facebook chat apps to hold me over.  That’s right, Facebook for Android has been updated to version 1.5 bringing along the highly anticipated Facebook chat as well as push notifications. This is gigantic news for those of us Android users that have been waiting what seems like forever for a dedicated Facebook chat client.  The addition of push notifications is huge because this is coming from a previous 30 minute minimum wait.  Check out the update pics and link information below and be sure to drop us a comment with your reactions.

During the day I work in graphic design and also do photography. By night I try to play with programming and code of all different types. I love the opportunity to write for the site and hope to see it grow as time goes on.
