I came here to write this review after being impressed by the sheer efficiency that this application runs with. I might add that the phone I am using hasn't the best components available for demanding applications, too. I have tried a good few Facebook alternatives and so far, this one is the only one that successfully filled the first bit of criteria that I was seeking: it is lightweight and efficient, as best as possible, when it comes to Facebook. As far as I can tell as a general scroller and ranter, it supports all points of interest that mobile Facebook presents with the exception of the messaging service, which it would seem is meant to be a supported feature but currently doesn't operate properly. You are shown how many unread messages you have in your inbox in the app', but notifications and actual messaging (even reading them) so far will require some modification on the developer's part to work - otherwise, users are constantly asked to 'download the messenger app', even if that is already installed on the same device. This is the *only* reason that I have refrained from adding a fifth star rating. Everything else, I would humbly suggest is uncontestedly better coding than its competitors, and furthermore than the original resource-hog that is the official Facebook Application. Personally, I can deal with having to use the official Messenger App', which in my opinion is leagues more stable and faster than the official browser. If one were going all-official, I would be forced to use two separate app's, anyway...so no loss. In case you were wondering and have read this far, if there are any advertisements attached to this application at the moment, then I haven't bloody seen them. Great work, Daniel.
For the last two weeks it won't allow opening messages (the app just closes each time I try) on both tablet or smartphone, which renders it useless really. I've reported the issue 3 times and had no reply. Time to uninstall. Goodbye Tinfoil for Facebook, Hello Metal for Facebook
The app is itself just a wrapper for the browser based Facebook but integrates everything nicely and works rather well considering. Thanks for updating the app recently. A way to permanently select most recent as the default landing page, it defaults back to the lame top stories every so often would be great.
This is a welcome relief from resource hogging FB app. However, in the latest version, the pictures are not displaying properly on my Tablet, Shield K1. Hope it gets fixed in the next update Edit: Photo bug taken care of. But the timeline gets refreshed every time I click on an external link.
It works well with FB lite. I didn't understand it. It took me by surprise when I started using FB lite. I don't know if I'm missing a term, but I find, "Tinfoil for Facebook so funny 😄" I LOVE the apps symbol - it makes me happy. 1 drawback. I like to have the option of uploading a pic.
Great alternative to the too intrusive Facebook app and messenger app that keep running in the background and eat up your mobile data plan. For casual FB user that happily lives without the false needs of being always connected to Facebook.
