    Official Facebook App For Windows Phone 8 Updated To v5 With New UX | WMPoweruser

    The official Facebook app is now out of beta and is bumped to version 5.
    However, it is WP8 only sadly :(

    EDIT: looks like a WP7 version will come out in the future.

    Just updated it and got rid of the beta. Looks pretty much the same so far.

    I really liked the beta design, kind of sad they are going with the standard look.

    Can someone help me out with this app... Unless I'm just missing something... I can't seem to figure out how to get to a list of FB pages I like... In the old app, you'd go to friends and swipe over to "pages" (I think)... In the new app, it doesn't seem to be there

    Edit: NVR mind, found it... Now you have to swipe left, click on yourself, and then scroll over to "Likes".
    My Apps: PIP (WP8 - Compass / Flashlight), Beer Knurd (WP7/8)
    Meme 8 Ball (WP8), UnClocked (WP8.1 - Themed Live Tile Clock)

    The major bug still hasn't been fixed. Notifications are still not marked as read.

    Sorry man, I don't (yet) have access to the app. I have a WP7 device. Sorry.

    Can anyone help me out with the Live Tile? Notifications don't seem to be showing up at all on it. In the app, the Live Tile options are enabled but not updating. Am I missing something? Thanks,

    Is battery saver off? Have you also checked under your account settings on the website to make sure your phone is enabled?

    Liked the previous version better. Doesn't really matter as I usually use the People hub for FB and Twitter anyway.

    Do you mean activating the phone number? It was active under T-Mobile, but I just reactivated it under ATT on Facebook. Should Batter Saver be shut off completely?

    Set "Enable shake to refresh" to ON. Then shake the phone when in chat list, it works.
    Can't save images yet.

    Is there, or has there ever been an option to disable the chat function? On desktop you have the choice but not on mobile currently? Also can any dev's suggest why the notification/toast issue is a particularly challenging problem? Like others, i was dismayed that after several Beta refreshes this important functionality is still very much lacking. Am i right to assume there is something in Facebook's backend that is the challenge? Its clear the MS guys are working hard on this, given the number of Beta updates etc, but im curious as to the root cause..

    Yes it is. Joe tweeted that it would. We just don't know when.
