Among new features include five icons depicting News Feed, Friends, Messages, Notifications and Other options just below the title bar. Several other elements have also been appropriately placed to give a more native look and experience to the app. Currently, Facebook team is testing the app and the new user interface is controllable from the Facebook servers.
