Well, that was fast. About two weeks ago, Facebook updated their Android app to version 1.9 which brought along, amongst other things, new Camera and Messenger shortcuts in the app drawer. While it was understandable why did that, understandably a lot of people were annoyed to find their app list further congested (including me).

Edgar had even posted last weekend of a little hack that allows you to get rid of those shortcuts, but thankfully enough, you no longer have to put any effort in to achieve that goal. In a minor update, Facebook have booted those shortcuts by default.

A little question at the end of all this: how many of you found those shortcuts helpful? And are you generally OK with an app having multiple entries in the app drawer, if it were to provide genuine advantages?

Thanks, Aaron!
