iPhone 4 Owners Having Problems with Facebook

A slew of complaints have recently been posted on the Facebook app reviews section of the iTunes store. It seems iPhone 4 users are complaining that their screens are freezing when trying to use the Facebook app. Several people have had to reinstall the app several times and the problem keeps happening over and over again. Another complaint is that iPhone 4 users that have been able to open up their Facebook app are having trouble uploading videos and photos and editing their profiles.

Even though it’s a free app, people are becoming frustrated and are hoping all of the bugs get fixed quickly. If you’ve experience the same problems or different ones using Facebook on the iPhone 4, you can let out your frustration here as well. Here’s hoping it all gets fixed real soon!

  13. Can’t scroll on profile pages (my own or otherwise!)! Rebooted, reinstalled and signed in again twice but problem still exists! Why do they keep bringing out updates? If it ain’t broke in the first place, don’t fix it Facebook (although the latest app needs fixing big time!) grr!

  14. I have the iPhone 4G and the Facebook app, and I can load messages…I just can’t always see them. I click on Notifications and select a Notification to read. But it never loads, it just endlessly loops so I never see the Notification. Argh! What on earth did they do??

  17. Facebook app works perfectly when i have wifi but without wifi it loads for a second then shuts the whole app down. Tried deleting and re-downloading app several times and no joy..all other apps work fine without wifi. What do i do?

  18. I hate the app right now. I would rather pay .99 for the app than to keep having these stupid issues. With this new updates version I can’t even use the search area…it always says “connection error” when clearly I am connected to wifi! This issue started about two weeks ago and I hate it. Also whenever I need to load a video I have to delete the app and upload it again.I love FB but I hate the app for Iphone. You would think they would have fixed these crazy bugs by now…goodness. Oh and when I try to update my profile to check for new things it just does nothing. I hate it I hate it I hate it!!!!

  19. So not sure what’s going on, when I go to go to someone’s profile even mine it won’t let me says sorry something went wrong try again and there is a pic of a piece of paper or book.
