Facebook for Android update (free)
Facebook pushed through a major update specific to Android users, better integrating the social network with the user experience. You can share photos and messages directly from your home screen, while the app itself has incorporated a number of features that were once separate in the Facebook Messenger app, including the ability to see when friends are online or on their mobile devices, and the option to add people to a group conversation. On the flip side, Facebook also added social discovery channels for Android apps with a presence on Facebook, making it easier to find apps that work on both platforms.
