Facebook today held a special event to talk about it’s mobile offerings. One of the biggest announcements promises to bring along a much simpler sign-in procedure for mobile users.

Those who use Facebook Connect on anything mobile know how annoying it can be to retype your email and password every time you want to log into Facebook to interact with the app. Now, it would seem that Facebook is offering a much simpler method. Using new APIs developers will be able to include a simple Facebook login button rather than requiring users to sign-ing with their username and password every time. Seems like it could be a much easier way to interact with mobile apps, just log-in to Facebook once, and you’re done.

The update comes alongside a number of new Places APIs, and updated apps for Android and iPhone. The Android app now includes Places and Groups integration. The iPhone app will now feature the ability to add photos to Places, and improved tagging.
