Facebook Moves Fast, Breaks Apps Again

For the second time in two months, a change Facebook made to its iOS SDK caused disparate high-profile apps to crash. It doesn’t appear that there is presently a good way around the predicament hoisted upon developers: if they want to support “sign in with Facebook” in their apps, they must implement the official SDK that Facebook has proved it is comfortable breaking.

Must be nice for Facebook to have the apparent blame fall on other developers and Apple because no user is going to think “Spotify crashed on my iPhone because of Facebook”. Also, notice that this doesn’t happen to Facebook’s own apps.
