About this app

Your Facebook app should work for you. It should be light, functional and beautiful. It should look how you want it and be accessible everywhere, with lightning fast launch speeds. Metal does this. And more.

And now it supports Twitter, too. Two social networks, one tiny app.

What is Metal?
If you're looking for a battery efficient alternative to the Facebook app, Metal is for you. It's a Web wrapper with some awesome enhancements you don't get from just a browser like Notifications, Floating windows and Themes.

Access your messages, news feed and notifications from anywhere effortlessly. Swipe down the notifications bar and tap an icon. Metal Everywhere opens, allowing you to browse Facebook in a convenient floating window, while you wait for a game to load or a photo to download.

Metal is for you, forever. Enjoy Facebook without any advertisements, anywhere. It keeps your data usage low and your experience the best possible.

(Facebook may offer you sponsored content as part of your feed)

More content, less distractions. Browse Facebook and Twitter with ease using Metal's enhancements.

Get notified from those you care about. Easy to set up and easy to use. Metal automatically obtains notifications from Facebook allows you to customise ringtone and vibration.

Browse Facebook your way. Dark mode makes everything dark. Or use White, a flat and beautiful theme. Or use the default Facebook Blue.

It's light (Just 3MB), and supports data-saving features and Orbot/Tor.

Metal is an alternative app and is no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. "Facebook" is a trademark of Facebook, Inc.

Crashes about 50% when trying to download an image. Randomly kicks me back to refreshed feed when backing out of a post or image. Search icon @ top right produces "page not found" error. Otherwise it seems to be a fairly decent app so far... Edit: The app can't differentiate between text/image scrolling & page scrolling. It's infuriating to write a post, scroll up to proofread, only to have it refresh the page & lose the post. 🤬

Using this for Twitter exclusively. I honestly like it for the most part but it has a fatal flaw that just gets in the way too much: you can pull down to refresh on any screen (even pictures) and it will refresh everything, even your homepage. If you were scrolling up a thread and hit the top too fast, now you're back at the bottom. Want to go back to your main feed? You're gonna start back at the top and lose your place. It prevents zooming in and scrolling up on pictures too. Really bad design

I never leave reviews for things but I will for this app. When the app is working perfect its great and one of the best Facebook app alternatives. I love it! Less invasive and takes up less memory. But....when this app acts up, its barely functional and doesn't work very smoothly at all. It wasnt't working too well for several months, and now it started working perfect again. Not sure what happened. Giving it 4 out of 5 stars for being non-functional for so long and having so many bugs at times. Otherwise it would've deserves 5 stars. Conclusion: Get it ans if its working well for you then stick with it. If not, then look for something that works better without any bugs or glitches. This is one of my favorite apps now that its working well again.
