Facebook’s engineers have abandoned the HTML5-based app and rewritten it in Objective-C programming language to make it perform like a true iOS app. The report  said:
People have different expectations when it comes to using Facebook for iOS,” Mick Johnson, Facebook iOS mobile product manager, told me in an interview this morning. "They expect a level of performance and speed that just wasn’t there".
Johnson says that the largest pain points — scrolling through the feed, photos and loading the app — will all be much faster, by a factor of three.
AllThingsD also notes that Facebook mobile developers  are now working on the three iOS app — Messenger, Camera and Facebook — which share a common code base. This means that Camera and Messenger are actually running in Facebook app and bringing many of their features to it. A shared code base also means that development cycles will be faster.
