Facebook for iOS received an update today bringing the ability to edit posts and comments directly from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Previously, this feature was only available from the desktop version of the website. The update also brings another desktop feature: the ability to add photos to comments. All in all, version 6.6 appears to bring the app closer to feature parity with the desktop, but a few of these features like status and comment editing appear to be absent from the iPad app for now. Read the full change log and see examples below:

What’s New in Version 6.6

• Edit your posts and comments, and tap to see all your changes • Add a photo when you comment • Express yourself with icons when you post to someone’s timeline (English only) • Get to privacy shortcuts by tapping the lock by your name in the main menu • Bug fixes

The update is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on the App Store.
