    Howdy all!

    So I currently have the Facebook app for iPhone/iPod and iPad installed on all of my devices. My iPhone was getting Facebook notifications perfectly for the past week or so. Today, it decided it doesn't want to work anymore.

    My iPod Touch and iPad still get the notifications almost instantly, but my iPhone won't work. I have a 4S if it makes a difference. Any suggestions to get this fixed? Also, I already checked the settings for the Facebook app and they are set to on.

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm having the same problem. It does seem to work ok as long as I don't kill the Facebook app or remove it from fast app switching.

    FWIW, Facebook notifications have never been reliable on any combo of iPhone/OS. Ever. They are notoriously bad in this aspect.

    The Facebook app for iPhone (and any phone honestly) is one of the most poorly developed/kept up apps on the markets...there are so many users for it, and so much money going into it, you'd think it would be perfect 100% of the time...but it seems to be one of, if not the worst commonly used apps on any phone...
    General Tso and alpinestars1z like this.

    i have also found that the facebook app sometimes just WONT update. I have to close it (completely) then restart it to work.

    I completely agree! Ever since I upgraded the app and my phone to iOS 5, it has worked flawlessly across all 3 platforms. Now, it's like it just decided not to work anymore. Very frustrating!!

    indeed it is, we have to kill the app & re-open it again but sometimes it does not work like this either!!
