LABS GALLERY: Updated App Improves Facebook Experience on iPhone

The Facebook for iPhone app got a significant lift on Aug. 27 with the addition of landscape mode, an easier-to-use home screen and greater access to Facebook features including events, newsfeed and photos. While there are no explicitly enterprise-oriented changes in Facebook for iPhone 3.01, the improvements will likely increase the chances that IT managers will see Facebook on iPhones in corporate environments. One missing feature: The Facebook "poke" function can still be used only on the Web client. By Cameron Sturdevant
