Facebook has released an update to its official iOS app adding support for the Retina Display on the third-generation iPad as well as several other small new features and bug fixes. Facebook 4.1.1 now allows users to set their status to offline in Facebook chat and adds support for several new languages including Czech, Danish, Greek, Indonesian, Malaysian, Norwegian, Portuguese and Thai. The update also fixes several problems found in prior versions including issues with incorrect profile pictures, missing people in friend lists, incorrect names being displayed in photo sets, and friend-request notifications being incorrectly displayed. Facebook 4.1.1 is a universal app requiring iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.

I am not trolling I swear, but, the title made me laugh, “bug fixes”? The iPad Facebook application is one of the buggiest apps that I have ever used.

@JaRa76 - I hear ya.  I don’t know why I even bothered updating. Every time i touch “Friends” in the sidebar, the app crashes.  This has been happening since I had my iPad 2 and now on my new iPad.  I’ve tried deleting the app, restarting my iPad, and then reinstalling but still crashes.  No help whatsoever from FB support.

instead of adding retine display graphics they should fix all the itchi errors in their apps.

Its slow, crashing and only a better view of the website.
