Facebook Beta For Windows Phone Released, Probably The Best Facebook Experience On Any Phone So Far

Something good just arrived on Windows Phone. What? A Facebook app. A revamped, mix of Metro and Facebook’s own UI. There’s an official app already, standing at v4.2.1, but it’s best ignored to say the least.
