It'll look exactly the same, but Facebook is expected to launch a rebuilt version of its iPhone app that will work much faster than its current one, according to a report.
The rebuilt Facebook app is expected to show up as an update in iOS next month with the primary purpose of fixing its slowness and its crashes.
To fix the issues, Facebook has revisited its iPhone app and recoded it entirely, for the most part using the standard Objective-C coding language to build the whole thing. Currently, the app only uses Objective-C for its shell and relies on HTML5 for the bulk of the app's features.
Using HTML5, Facebook was able to develop multiple versions of the app for the many different smartphones on the market while saving time and keeping a uniform look. But opting not to use Objective-C until now has given the app a speed disadvantage simply because Facebook had chosen not to use every tool at its disposal.
