Android gets social (and beats the iPhone): official Facebook SDK released!

Today, and after unveiling it at Google I/O, Facebook released its official Facebook SDK for the Android platform.

With the current release Android developers can finally transform their apps into social gateways. Specifically, these are the features built into this first SDK release:

  • Strong authentication using OAuth 2.0
  • Making requests to the new Graph API
  • Publishing stories back to Facebook via Feed forms

For all the Android VS iPhone fans, this SDK actually brings to Android developers a feature that is still unavailable to Applers: the Graph API, introduced with the purpose to simplify and uniform the access to Facebook contents and relationships.
