Let's face it, when it comes to Android, whether you like the official Facebook application or not it has one major flaw: no notifications! And this is even more true when you don't use any app for Facebook at all but just the browser, and yet want to keep updated. I frankly hate this: why would you have to check for updates yourself when you could get automatically notified whenever a notification from your Facebook account arrives, just as iPhone users do?
I decided to solve this issue for my own convenience, and so this is where this app chimes in: a lightweight and fast application to get notifications from Facebook, what you decide, at the interval you decide and reported as you decide. Nothing else, just as plain and simple as effective! Choose between general notifications, private messages, friend requests, events, birthdays, pokes, online friends and lost friendships and decide how to view the notifications:
* directly in the app, with the ability to like/comment/share/reshare/RSVP;
* open it in the official Facebook app;
* open it in FriendCaster (Free or Pro) if installed;
* open it in Seesmic, if installed;
* open it in Facebook Stream for Android, if installed;
* open it in the browser (full view, Touch or WAP version);
* or just open any other app you have installed (just opening the main activity of app, no custom behaviour)
The service can be started automatically at boot if you want, and a 1x1 widget is provided as well to explicitly request new notifications should you want to. 1x1, 2x1 and 4x1 widgets are also available to show counters of unread notifications. (NOTE: the widgets will NOT work if you move the app to SD). Notifications can be received in the notifications bar and as popup dialogs (by also unlocking and/or waking the screen, if necessary). Details on all the required permissions are at the end of this page.
Other features include: newsfeed, walls, pages, groups, checkin, photo/video upload and much more!
IMPORTANT: the app only gets NEW and UNREAD notifications, meaning it won't download, for example, all the notifications you already saw before launching the app or between refreshes.

Track friend added
Track relationship status changes (married, single...)
Will remember information for different Facebook accounts.
Track multiple Facebook accounts. For a family member or friend that doesn't have an Android phone. Or if you have multiple Facebook accounts you want to keep track of. Just log out and log in as the new user. If you have the Facebook app installed and don't want to log out of that one, just go to preferences and uncheck "use SSO".
Also track relationship status changes. Showing the relationship status of your friends in the current list. In preferences can uncheck it so will not alert you when a status was changed.
Showing birthdays (and age) for those that chose to share the information.
App will NO LONGER track or try to determine if the removed friend just unfriended you, blocked you or had their account deactivated for some reason.
You can backup the database and save the friended and unfriended lists. It will save the database on the SD card so you can back it up and if you reset or get a new phone you can restore it.
Whatever feedback you can give me I'd appreciate it. You can email me at email@example.com or leave a comment here or on the Facebook page. Thanks.
Friend Tracker is an application that was made specifically for keeping track of your friends on facebook and to see in detail which of your friend added you.
Each time you run the application you will see if there is a change to the total number of friends. If there is a change you will get a total of the friends that added you.
You have an option of getting the list of names from the last time you ran the application, a list of new friends and another list of friends that added you.
When you first log in to Friend Tracker the first screen will have the total number of your friends you currently have. Next time you run the application, if there are any changes, it will show you a total number of those that added you.
After installation, click on the login button and log into Facebook with your username and password, if asked.
The first screen will show a summary of total friends. Next time you run the app, if there are any changes to your number of friends there will be a total number showing the friends that were added or removed and the phone will vibrate. To get a detail of the new friends just swipe the screen right or left (4 screens total) or click on the new changes and it will take you to that detailed screen. When you click on a friend in the detailed screen it will take you to their Facebook profile page.
There is a summary screen and 4 lists (screens): Removed Friends, Added Friends and the full Current Facebook friend list and their relationship status and a birthday list. The full friend list might not be complete because of the way Facebook tracks a friend. The number you see in the app might be a bit lower.
AddFriends is a fully customizable search App. You can configure it to search in any web site and use it to find information about a person or use it as online dictionary.
You can personalize and add any social account you want for quick access or you can also add any search engine, blog, wiki, online dictionary, encyclopedia, etc.
Authentication is done externally by the same Android browser, so this App does not require login information nor granting access.
If you want you can long-press the Search button on your device to open directly this App.
This App uses zero memory and zero CPU when it is not in the foreground.
AddFriends works with for example Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, FourSquere, Youtube, VK Vkontakte, tumblr, Pinterest, Flickr People etc.
ALL THESE SERVICES ARE ONLY EXAMPLES, THE USER CAN CONFIGURE, ADD OR REMOVE ANY SEARCH ENGINE OR WEB SITE
THIS APP IS INDEPENDENT AND UNAFFILIATED WITH THE MENTIONED SERVICES. ALL NAMES KEEP THEIR RESPECTIVE PROTECTED TRADEMARKS
***** PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE NEGATIVE FEEDBACK YET *****

***** AND IT IS STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT *****
*** HELP ME CORRECTING AND IMPROVING IT BY SENDING FEEDBACK ***
*** Many thanks!!! ***
When you login, first I request the read_mailbox permission to get your inbox unread count, and then I request the manage_notifications permission, these permissions must be requested separate because one is read and the other is publish. My app only reads messages/notifications. I do not use these permissions to publish anything to your facebook feed.
Not Logged In
If after update you may see this message. If you do try to logout and back in via settings or also clear app data through the Android Settings. This should clear up this issue.
