BIG Vita for Facebook update

We've been hard at work trying to improve the performance as much as possible and in doing so we've also implemented lots of other tweaks and improvements. So be sure to grab the latest update (v3.64) as soon as it appears (which should be within the next couple of hours) and let me know what you think. See below for a few of the changes...

New dropdown filter options (improves performance/load times)
Fixed issue so tagging people in photos works again
Added more 'sync interval' options + improved handling of notifications
Improved chat, message & invitation layouts
Other tweaks & bug fixes throughout

In case you're wondering what we've been working on lately, here it is... http://www.curious-creature.org/docs/android-performance-case-study-1.html

When we had a look at the performance of Vita for Facebook, there was LOTS of red (red = bad), so while we've been working on implementing the nav drawer, we also looked at how we could use the techniques mentioned in this article to further improve the performance of the app. There's now much more green (green = good) and the app performs noticeably better, especially on lower-spec & older devices.

Hoping to have this release out next week (or sooner) so stay tuned.
