REPORTED PROBLEMS

1.1.0.17
- On some devices, after viewing a photo album, MS Facebook is unable to view any other contact's album pictures and generate their album list.
- On some configurations, MS Facebook is unable to remember login credentials after closing the app.

1.1.0.14
- Slow page scrolling reported on some devices.
- After viewing a photo album, MS Facebook is unable to view any other contact's album pictures and generate their album list.
- dominicanman912 reports that MS Facebook changed the volume keys mapping, so he's unable to change the volume anymore. There are no other reports of this issue.
- Facebook throws out an error while trying to fetch the inbox.
- megapinky is reporting he's unable to change photo to see another ones in the picture view, with gestures not working.
- Sometimes MS FB will not post updates once submitted; you'll need to try multiple times until your wall gets updated.
- pndragon reports that his all his news feeds are showing up as double posts.
- On i8000 if you should have install problems try follow this guide (thanks to b006): Restall v1.1 from Marketplace to override the preinstalled version, then go to Main Storage in settings and delete it (uninstall). Next install this version 1.2, not in main (since the preinstalled v1.1 is there to avoid conflicts) but in other storage options you have.
- On some devices, Facebook throws out an error message while trying to poke someone.
____

If a new Microsoft Facebook client version should pop up on the Marketplace, on the Microsoft Download web site or here, please remove the previous version using the remove programs applet prior to install the new update.

Thanks!!

MS needs to speed up the development on this app because iPhone's and Android's facebook apps are way better then what we're getting (haven't used blackberry's fb app yet)

Anytime
imho I think that if MS decided to not release this version for Pocket PC it means that they're preparing something better compared to the Smartphone version, and hopefully we'll have some updates for MWC

Big thank you for sharing this update with us!!! Isn't it strange that they released an update for smartphones and no update for PPC???

I think PPC's are more popular than smartphones...
Google Nexus 4 & 7....

Yeah, it's strange that they didn't posted that in the touchscreen marketplace, also because there's a huge version bump (from 1.0.0.7 to 1.1.0.14) and some very welcome new features; when first extracted the original CAB wouldn't even install on my HD2 so I had to build it from scratch, so hopefully they're doing something better for our WM Professional devices.

Will look into that, but as far as I know there's no solution. As it's an application released to work only on non touchscreen devices, they probably didn't put much attention into (kinetic) scrolling. If I had to scroll down faster I used the scroll bar, too, but imo that's not too much of a hassle
