Windows Phone 7 Facebook application released

One more Windows Phone 7 application has been released a few hours ago and this time it is the official¬†Facebook app. Nothing too fancy here but fortunately it follows the UI guidelines to make the user experience consistent with the rest of the OS. Sadly it doesn’t feature push notifications (in fact the vast majority of the applications currently on the Marketplace don’t support it even thought some of them “should” have this feature from the get go..). Just log into your Zune Desktop software and check it out in the Marketplace.
