This a good alternative app for Facebook. At times, I have issues with the Facebook app and I use this one. I haven't had any problems using this so far. It's straightforward and easy to use. I wanted share something with a friend and wasn't sure if it would because the name on my friends list doesn't pop up. I'll have to use it more to get acquainted with it.
A solid alternative for popular social networking apps like Facebook and Twitter. The pro-version of Metal has a sleek UI and performs wonderfully when browsing through Facebook and Twitter, all while consuming much less battery (especially when compared to the official Facebook app). Pro users can also customize the UI colors with a nice, albeit limited array of color themes. However, Metal's search function for Facebook seems to be reporting errors whenever utilized. In addition, photos selected from group photos cannot be viewed individually nor saved.
It's great that Metal lets you use Facebook without giving all the excessive permissions that the FB app demands. Recent updates have improved stability. What seems to be missing is, pasting a URL when creating a post doesn't display a picture & a link the way it does if you're accessing FB through a browser.
Man every update its something new that gets fixed and other things that get messed up. As of 12/08/17 I can no longer see the amount of likes on individual comments, but hey images load better now. Please fix, Note 8
Update: works with FB messenger features as well. Such a pleasure to use after using that bloated Facebook app.... and the pro version is really worth it, too- good work by author. Get it, use it, delete your Facebook app- and FB messenger app. when you're not running the Metal app, just tell FB settings on your browser to forward messages to your regular, much better Android app of choice, and profit.
I would of given it 5 star but the latest update has broken the ui. I no longer get icon notifications to say if i have a message or notification. It used to have a little red number saying how many you have. But now i have to press it and then it shows a ton of message and notifications i have missed due it not showing in the icons at the top
Black theme fixed for comments
