Those using the Facebook Messenger app on the iPhone may want to fire up the App Store and grab this latest update. The app has gone up to version 1.7 and with the new version number comes a few new (and seemingly worthwhile) features. The new goodies include being able to see who has read your message and who hasn’t — better know as read receipts. In addition, your can now see where your friends are messaging your from and you can reach your friends regardless if they are on the web or on a mobile device. Finally, this latest release also brings some bug fixes and a typing indicator which will allow you to see when your friends are typing. Changes and new features aside, the Facebook Messenger app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is free to download and free to use.
