Improvements to the new app includes a new menu which is located on the side that is meant to allow for quicker access to the news feed, groups, games and apps and to make things generally more intuitive. There's also a new notification bar at the top which shows when you have new messages and notifications and you can respond to these without leaving the Facebook page you're on.
