When it was discovered that Facebook’s updated app for Android contained a bit of code that prevented your phone from fully entering standby and therefor having an adverse effect on battery life, we didn’t think the fix would come so soon. But lo and behold, after acknowledging the issue they have released a new version into the market bringing the app from version 1.3 to 1.3.1. Here is the official statement on the issue:
Hi folks, a number of you have commented on seeing a battery drain on your device since installing the new Facebook for Android app. We have identified the bug that is causing this battery drain and are working on a fix now. As soon as the patch is ready, we will push out an update. Thanks for the quick feedback and for your patience as we get this fixed!
If you numbered yourself among the many reporting poor battery life after the update, go ahead and grab the newest version and you should be set. Just imagine all the stalking you can do with that extended battery life!
