    Default Facebook App

    The official FB app is pure garbage. I've tried MyPad, don't like it. What are some of the best FB apps that you guys recommend? BTW, it simply amazes me that a company like FB can't make a better app than that.

    I'm assuming you are talking about the iPad version?

    If so, I completely agree. Case and point, the iPhone got Facebook Timeline support in early December '11. How on early, over 4 months later, does the iPad app still not support Timeline?
    App is slow, fairly often crashes, and Chat is essentially unusable from the iPad. Countless times I will log in on a computer and find a message that someone was trying to "Chat" to me while I was online on my iPad.

    Luckily I am not a heavy Facebook user and don't have to use the iPad app very often.


    For an alternative way of checking your Facebook (doesn't include EVERYTHING) download Flipboard.
    You can link your Facebook, Twitter, and add any general interests and the app provides an aesthetically-pleasing way of scrolling through it all.

    I think the API sucks, because all of the mobile apps that use it are junk.

    The app is terrible. Look at the reviews. I would even pay if they could make a quality app.

    On my iPad (3rd gen) it is slow, crashes occassionally, doesn't auto refresh when you open the app (I always have to "Pull to Refresh") and always reverts to "Top Stories" even though I keep changing it to "Most Recent". It's frustrating!

    It's so bad that for some reason the ratings in the app store have been removed. Is FB pressing Apple to not let this app/trash have a rating?

    I am surprised owning both an iphone 4 and bb 9930 how often the bb app is updated as opposed to the iphone app. Does rim build internally?
