A new Facebook app for Apple mobile devices that the social network says is twice as fast as its predecessor arrived Thursday in Apple's online app store.
Facebook says the new app, which will replace both the current iPhone and iPad apps, has been rebuilt from the ground up to give users a much faster experience.
Facebook said the new "app is twice as fast as the previous version when launching the app, scrolling through news feed and opening photos in feed."
The app has also received two notable changes.
Now, when you scroll through your news feed, Facebook will show you a banner at the top to alert you of new posts that have been added to the feed, and you can tap the banner to be taken to the them.
