Facebook Messenger Update Adds Support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5

facebook-messenger-ios-updateFacebook has introduced an update to its Messenger app that adds support to iOS 6 and Appleā€™s new iPhone 5. Most of the changes deal with the interface, bringing version 2.0 on par with what Facebook previously introduced to Android. Now users have the ability to perform actions like swipe left to bring up a list of contacts, and you can also pin friends you message most to the top of your favorites. Additionally, the chat interface has been done over with speech bubbles, so it more closely matches an SMS experience. Otherwise, the typical bug and maintenance fixes are being introduced in the update, which should make the app perform more smoothly. The update is free and available now.
