Facebook’s iPhone app

From where I’m standing, this is one of the prettiest iPhone apps to date. Facebook has gone ahead and stripped out the fat from it’s desktop version, presenting iPhone users with a simplified version of its popular online social networking tool. Tapping a link leads to a right-scrolling effect that is very Apple-esque, compelling you to tap links for the sheer pleasure of seeing the scroll happen again, and again. Photos have been optimized for mobile perusal, and the basic networking properties are all available. One major gripe, however, is that they seem to have left out the ability to join new groups. So sad. That aside, this little bugger is full of usefulness and eye candy — a deadly combo. Hit the link to try it out. Non-iPhone users can head on over as well…it’s merely a web app that will make you want to use Facebook even more than you did before.
