Nothing really earth shattering to report for this release. It is still very accessible to use. For being Facebook this is no doubt the better app that is much more accessible. There are still a few unlabel buttons but nothing to worry about. The NEW features are just more novelty for thos with vision. No improvement to the accessibility and nothing was broken in this update.

Now it's easier to send photos and emoji:
- Just tap the paper clip from any message

If you are interested in reporting this to the Facebook Accessibility Team. Just go to this page and submit your concerns.
Will be curious if you get any response back from them.
At first when I had reviewed this new update. It had looked like they have had done an outstanding job. It appeared at first to be fully accessible. Unfortunetly, there are a few problems with the app. When adding an attachment that would include either a picture or an audio. The menu does show up. You will have to search for it by your fingers. Flicking to the left or right doesn't appear to find it. So fro example if I want to record an audio. It will be towards the lower section of the screen. So using your fingers you will find the Record button and such. The other issue that I have is that at first. I thought they had removed the ability to delete your messages. Well, it turns out when you do a double tap hold. Flick left. There are three items to choose from. However, VO users will not be able to hear this. There are three options to Mute, Archive and such. If you know where to tap. It will work but VO will not let you know it is there. Other than these two issues. It appears to be working great. So it is not as fully accessible as I would like to be. :(
Would love to hear from others if they have found any issues that I may have looked over?
What's New in Version 3.0
A completely new design, updated for IOS7. Custom in-app sounds.
Not just for Facebook friends: Now you can message people in your phone book. And it's easy to add new contacts—just enter a phone number.
I never delete my messages. I know I should but I just never do unless I have to. I'll have a play with it tonight if I remember and see if there's a way to remove messages.
I would try the old swipe and conform we all knew and loved in iOS 3 and higher.
