Facebook for Android

At long last, Android users have an official Facebook app to call their very own.

While BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian and iPhone users have had an official Facebook application for their devices for some time, Android users have up until now been forced to settle for applications developed by third-party developers for the popular social networking site.

Although still reportedly ‘buggy’ and lacking many of the more advanced features of its elder counterparts, the Facebook app for Android will let you check your wall and news feed, update your status, share links, comment on posts, and upload pictures.

Unfortunately, that’s it for now. There’s no support for messaging, chat, approving friend requests, and many of the others features that have found their way into the evolutionary editions of Facebook’s apps for other platforms.

All apps have to start somewhere though, right?
