BlackBerry PlayBook Facebook

In addition to the v1.0.5 update to the operating system that the PlayBook has received, the Facebook app on the BlackBerry PlayBook has been given a major boost, adding a whole bunch of new features that bring the tablet PlayBook experience closer to the one on the desktop.

The updated Facebook app for the PlayBook now supports:

Video uploading: a much requested feature that allows users to make use of the tablet’s high-res camera to record videos and upload them on to Facebook. Users can also upload videos that they didn’t record i.e. clips sent to them by friends etc.

Facebook Search Enhancements: Facebook Search has been enhanced with a more intuitive access point and improved search capabilities. Users can now filter friends with the friends search, find long lost friends with the Everyone search or even look for their favorite bands or TV shows with the Pages search.

Improved Access to Pages: users now have a Pages tab where they can easily access all their own Pages and Pages that they’ve liked.

Message Deletion: Facebook messages can now be deleted from the tablet itself. Take note that messages deleted from the app will be permanently removed from the account, so you won’t be able to access them elsewhere.

Photo Upload Album Selection: users now have the ability to select which album they would like to upload their images to when uploading from the tablet itself.

News Feed Improvements: the News Feeds feature of the app has been improved to give users even more interaction with posts without having to leave the News Feed View.

Options and Help Center: the icons for these features have been moved to the swipe down bar on the BlackBerry PlayBook.

The update will be included with the PlayBook v1.0.5 update or can be downloaded separately from the BlackBerry App World.
