Facebook for Android Update Coming With Dedicated Places App?
What you see in the image above is what the new Facebook application for Android might look like. The 1.8 version of the software bit is reportedly codenamed “Katana” and while the final version might be somewhat different, the screenshots are rather telling.
You can see revamped navigation and menus as well as what appears to be a stand-alone Places app called Nearby. It might be a companion a-la Facebook Messenger or it might just be a shortcut for the section inside the app but with rumors of Facebook’s recent acquisition of Gowalla, it might as well have something to do with the service offering.
