No longer working Used to work great. Now it randomly decides to stop connecting to the internet mid-post. Can't tag people. It's slow. Won't auto refresh notifications. Have to manually refresh to see new notifications. I'm not able to change between Most recent and top stories (it claims I did, but all posts are from days ago). I'm uninstalling and looking for a better app.
Pheww, that's better! Sure made me feel better about Facebook on my phone. The official app kept getting fatter and fatter... My only request is notifications (or I have somehow missed them). I know push notifications are something else entirely, but is it possible to check, say, every 12 hours if I have any Facebook notifications? Or is there another app entirely that would be better for that sole purpose?
Great app, but... Love this app until recently. Biggest is it crashes everytime i try to access messages. Havent been able to access for a week or so. I installed this app primarily because i dont want to install messanger and enjoy the space saving. So may stop using if not fixed. I unistalled and reinstalled and still crashing. Also, tagging isnt consistent, sometimes you can, sometimes you cant. Otherwise liked the app and would have given 4 stars. Note5 user.
Funny Name, Great App Tried every fb client and every fb downloader on play store looking for the smoothest, most efficient fb alternative available so I could ditch the official fb bloated battery-draining app. This is by far the best for recreating the fb experience. Not designed for downloading vids, but does almost everything else and does it well. I will continue to monitor this app's performance and update my findings.
Messaging not working? I decided I didn't want to use messenger because of the mic permissions, that's just a bit too much to me. It's been working fine for a few months, but today it seems like FB has found a way to get around this. As of tonight, when I try to go to my messages, it force closes the app. The last thing I saw on the messaging screen was "your conversations are moving to messenger"...anyone else?
Makes Facebook a usable proposition The app is itself just a wrapper for the browser based Facebook but integrates everything nicely and works rather well considering. Dev if you could add the following that would be amazing. Longer pre-loaded news feed so you could choose to pre-load say 10 pages instead of waiting for the load at the bottom of each segment. A way to permanently select most recent, it defaults back to the lame top stories every so often. Also the news feed will occasionally lose it's permission if you interact on a post.
- FINE_LOCATION permission is now needed in order for the geolocation feature to work (check-ins). Location will still not be sent to Facebook unless you have the 'Allow check-ins' option enabled.
- Use a wide viewport in order to try to avoid images going off screen
- New icon using material design specs by Constantin Eckstein
- Bug fixes
- Please remember this is just a wrapper to Facebook's mobile site and we have no much control of content and layout changes.
