Facebook overhauls Android SDK with new controls

The updated Facebook SDK 3.0 Beta for Android, which it calls “the biggest overhaul of our Android SDK so far,” includes new native UI controls.

Among the controls now being offered are Friend Picker, which allow developers to tag friends or find people who have installed their app; Places Picker, which shows places with customizable locations nearby; Profile Picture, which shows the profile picture of anything on Facebook, be it person, place or thing; and new login controls that are meant to simplify how user identify and app permission are managed.
