In its ongoing attempts to cash in on mobile, Facebook released yet another iOS update today, just hours after releasing its Android app .

The new iOS app boasts faster loading times for the news feed and Timeline, and the ability to choose which album to upload photos to. Facebook has been releasing these app updates at lighting speed over the last few months as part of the company's new mobile-first strategy . Its previous update, sent out less than a month ago, added the coveted "share" button.

Its new Android app also delivers a faster experience -- photos and the Timeline load twice as fast, according to CNET's Jaymar Cabebe . That's because the app was completely rebuilt with native code, similar to an overhaul Facebook did for iOS in August .
