    The long-awaited Facebook 3.1 app has finally arrived! Ever since Facebook 3.0 was released in November of 2009, users have been disappointed at the lack of push messages. Push is now up and running!

    Users can also now sync their Facebook friends with their address books, thus allowing them to obtain email addresses, phone numbers, caller ID pictures, etc.

    Facebook app on iTunes:

    I like the sound of this... I thought the developer abandoned the Facebook app though...

    woops. I should have checked the functionality of the contact syncing. Somebody else on the forums said that only a caller ID picture can be synced.

    Still, one can obtain the contact information and transcribe it their phone book if they so please. Of course, if the Facebook user has chosen not to provide their contact information to their information, then there is no way to get it off of the site/app. Would anyone care to try the friend syncing and post their results (the capabilities of the sync)?

    It will give you all the information they provide on their profiles. If it is not there, it is not syncing. By everything, I mean everything... Address, email (I think), phone, fax, cell, ect. It also does the profile picture. It also gives their Facebook profile page as their home page.

    That's all I see.

    Thanks! I'm really happy about that! I wonder if chat is finally working... I can't try right now because I'm in the middle of a total re-sync of my music due to an issue with album artwork. I can't believe that the Apple devs STILL haven't fixed the bug. It's been around since before 2.0!

    Can anyone confirm that Facebook contact photo syncing actually works? (with the jailbroken 3GS especially)
