Facebook to launch "faster" iPhone app in July

Let's face facts here: Facebook's iOS app is terrible. Seriously -- it's slow, the navigation is practically nonsensical, and I've even left messages and "likes" on the app that have never showed up on the big blue social network itself. It's probably the worst app I regularly use on my...
