Does it also support the combined chat/inbox feature of facebook, or just chat? What's it's battery draining like?

I can't speak for Android, since I use an iPhone, but the iPhone version isn't heavy on the battery usage due to the way Apple's notification system works.

To be honest, I don't use facebook nearly enough to notice if it supports the combined inbox/chat. I rarely use either tongue
