As noted by Facebook on its official blog on Monday, the updated version of the Facebook for iPhone app is now available at Apple‘s app store, after the Facebook Timeline was made available to mobile for everyone.

“We’re excited to announce that timeline is now available on Facebook for iOS version 4.1, for iPhone and iPod Touch devices.” A statement reads at the official Facebook blog that day.

“The 10.1 MB Facebook iPhone app is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch, and requires iOS 4.0 or later, with the iPad support to come soon.” Apple added.

According to Apple, the free Facebook app is available in 13 different languages including English, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.

The Facebook app version 4.0 was released last October, in which among the key features include a hands-on Facebook, where users can use their fingertips to scroll through their News Feed.

Apparently, some of the users of the new version of the Facebook app were noted to be unhappy with the update and Android’s Facebook app reportedly has many daily users than that of iPhone.

On a post at CNET UK, others said the Facebook timeline update caused the app to crash and that the app is slow especially over 3G, adding that friend requests are not visible which they say may be caused by a bug.

Meanwhile, App Data tracking service reported that from November to December 2011, the Android Facebook app now has 58.8 million daily active users, while the iPhone version has only 57.6 million.

Nevertheless, the same report said that the Facebook iPhone app has 99.5 million monthly active users, as compared with Android‘s 86.1 million only, although the daily figure was said to be a more important measure of use.
