This "internal buffering" stuff seems to be mere marketing b/s to get users back.. I bought it and this app is very slow, especially when loading user profiles. Back to Simple Pro.
Edit2: Now back to being great :) Edit:This app used to be great, but for several weeks now there's a blank page popping up every few seconds, which just says "success". Sadly also development seems to be stopped completely now. Before that updates were frequent. Original review: In my opinion the best replacement for the official Facebook app.
Works pretty well now that the developer is back. There is a couple issues I keep intermittently having. If I comment on something, after I post it, it sometimes only posts the first 2 letters of the entire post. The other issue is that sometimes I have to reopen the app because it stops loading after the first few posts on the news feed.
It is almost perfect. As an admin of several groups it is annoying that one can not disable commenting on posts within groups and the answer to security questions are not showing. Other than that there this is the best app I have found for Android and it works 97% of the time and when not a reboot usually fixes any hangups.
I really like the app but there is a bug in the video player. The seek bar on the bottom disappears. If I click the screen it reappears for a split second before disappearing again. This is on the S7 Edge.
Update: V7.2.14a: back on form. Working pretty well again after problems in December. Bit laggy on startup (it seems) but after that it settle down and functions well. OLD: Latest 7.2.1 update broken. It freezes/becomes unresponsive (on a Pixel XL/Oreo). Gone from being a lightweight, fast skin for the mobile FB site to a bloated unusable app. Feels like the original design goals have been forgotten. :(
Dev did abandon this app in the past and didn't fix major bugs which caused me to uninstall. However, Dev seems to be back and have fixed majority of the bugs and this is again my favorite Facebook app. A+
