Apps: Facebook 6.0, SugarSync 4.0, YouTube 1.3 + Zillow 6.0

Facebook, Inc. has updated its Facebook app (free) to version 6.0. The new update adds chat heads to both the iPhone and iPad versions of the app — a “floating” head now enables users to quickly continue a chat with a friend while browsing other feeds. iPhone Facebook app users can send Emoji-style stickers within messages, and new feeds such as Music, Photos, and Games have been added. For the iPad app, the News Feed has been redesigned and streamlined. Chat heads and stickers should be available for all users “over the next few weeks.”

It’s also easier to share and access content shared by others. The new Cloud Search feature lets users search for files across all computers right from the app, and Open In lets users save documents, photos, or videos from other apps into the SugarSync app. A device filter for viewing all folders is also new, and a folder label feature is coming soon.

Google, Inc. has updated its YouTube app (free) to version 1.3. The update features access to live streams, and the ability to queue videos for playback on TV. Also, it’s quicker to upload new subscription videos using the guide’s My Subscriptions feed.
