Facebook adds Timeline to iPhone app

The new Facebook iPhone app adds the new Timeline layout mobile - iPad users will have to wait.

Facebook Timeline 

Facebook's new profile layout, Timeline, is designed to be a better way to "tell your life story." Timeline was supposed to roll out a few weeks after its September debut, but we still haven't seen it (in mass effect) as of early December.
