About this app

Friendly is the most complete alternative to your favorite social networks
Over 17 million mobile downloads!

Built as an extension of the lite mobile website, it preserves your battery, storage and data, while giving you back control over your news feed.

Social Browser
No need to download a ton of apps! You can have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, Reddit, etc. in One App!

Video Download
Easily save your videos to share or watch them later. Works also with your photos.

Regain Your Privacy
Block social trackers, and click trackers. Use our PIN or Fingerprint Lock.

Customize your News Feed
The brand spanking new Keyword Filtering feature for Android devices works in two ways: If you’re tired of seeing political posts, simply set your Keyword Filter to hide posts and articles containing the keywords “election,” “Republican,” or “Democrat”... and voilà: Any posts containing those words will not appear in your news feed.

Conversely, if you want to see more posts featuring cats (or posts from a close friend), you can set a Keyword Filter to highlight topics and users. Why settle for Fb less-than-ideal algorithm when you can take full news feed control with Friendly?

• Sort your news feed by Most Recent posts
• No need for another messenger app to message your friends

Buggy and struggles to keep up with FB's anti-3rd party techniques. Night Mode is in some cases impossible to read; photos are totally broken, especially uploading from files (vs camera) and viewing then in order in a post. Posts and comments often get cut off and need to be fixed. Messages require hopping back and forth between pages to work due to Meta shenanigans. Gets an extra star for the features it does have, including setting order or posts and the essential post filtering.

It's a good idea and some parts of the app work but for Twitter, it only shows 20 tweets on the timeline and there's no way to get it to show more, so that makes it pretty useless for Twitter. The app has recently stopped letting me post pictures to Facebook. I tap on "photo" and select the photo on my phone, but it doesn't upload.

I've used this app for years and I've finally given up on it. It's great that you can set "newest first" as your default feed, it's great that you can filter out ads, it's great that you can make text size bigger and enable highlighting text. It's NOT great that media posts just don't work most of the time. I have to open posts with videos or multiple pictures in a browser to be able to view them properly. Videos don't play and pictures seem to be in a random order when you swipe through them!
