Facebook rewrites the code for its mobile apps for iOS… I just downloaded the iPhone version, and it’s a very noticeable improvement, much smoother…

“Facebook’s executives say the company is diving deep into mobile, starting with new versions of its apps for the iPhone and iPad, which it released Thursday. Users had complained that the apps were sluggish; more than half of those who have rated Facebook’s iPhone app in the Apple App Store gave it one star out of five. The new apps are faster because they were rewritten in the native programming language of Apple’s devices, replacing most of the Web-based technology used in previous versions.”
