Facebook Tab for Sense Updated to 1.6
The world wide web has turned into a social paradise, where people from all over the world interact with each other in any way, shape, or form. To facilitate this interactions, many social websites have emerged over the last few years where people can share their lives with others, whether it is with loved ones or complete strangers. The current king on these sites is Facebook, and as such, we need our devices to help us do more on this site. XDA member meltwater has just released an updated version of his very popular Facebook tab mod for the Sense interface for WM.
In this new release the dev has greatly improved things like scrolling speed and smoothness, as well as many other internals to get the code to run a bit better and make the experience more enjoyable for you. Be sure to read the instructions on how to properly install this, and if you want to wait a bit more, you may end up having a rom with this cooked in by one of our chefs.

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
