Facebook releases Messenger for Mobile app

Facebook has released a new instant messaging application for iOS. Facebook Messenger for Mobile is a standalone application that will allow iOS users to quickly and easily send messages to friends and contacts via Facebook. Messages are delivered via iOS device notifications and texts and users can send messages to both their Facebook friends and their contacts who are not on Facebook. As an extension of the Facebook messaging system, all conversations are automatically saved to the user’s Facebook profile alongside Facebook chats, e-mails and messages.

In addition to basic messaging, Facebook Messenger for Mobile will provide several other more advanced features such as group conversations with multiple users and location support to allow users in the conversation to easily locate each other on an integrated map view. Users will also be able to attach photos in a conversation allowing other users to view and comment on them. Facebook Messenger requires iOS 4.0 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
