Facebook has announced an update for its app on the iPhone and iPad. New and improved Facebook 5.0 is twice as fast as its predecessor.

While popular, the Facebook app has been critiqued severely for being slow and buggy. The new update seeks to change all that.

Facebook Product Manager, Mick Johnson wrote, “We’ve rebuilt the app from the ground up, so now the app opens much faster and your news feed and notifications load right when you open Facebook”.

Other features in the update include – Photos open faster and close with one downward swipe, faster scrolling through the news feed, a new banner lets you quickly see more stories with just one tap and instant access to your notifications.

Users can download the new update from the App store.
