2.0 out of 5 stars Poor 31 Aug 2012
By Paul Price TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Will not display group photos - only in the newsfeed but the option is there to be able to do just that. When choosing friends on the official FB app it will show as a fresh newsfeed which is nice. This however just brings up all your friends profile pics in an ugly grid format. Posting status or comments is quick but then it is on the official FB app. What really brought me here was how terribly slow even over WiFi official FB is to even just get in. Well I've tried with this to view friends albums and I got nowhere. 2 minutes later and it was on a constant loading loop. The latest version of Facebook has some neat features and the UI itself is fine. It's just got unforgivable bugs and loading issues which I thought this would banish. Well it doesn't. And the actual UI is more clunky than Facebook. Deleting this. The whole idea of a 3rd party app is that its better than the official app. I like the idea of going into albums in a list format showing any friend uploads before getting to your own but as mentioned it doesn't work. This app promises so much and delivers little.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome alternative to Facebook app 30 Aug 2012
Okay so I've been using the facebook android
for a while and found it to be very clunky and it also crashes quite often. I downloaded friendcaster and to my complete pleasure it's been a really good app. Its made my whole facebook experience on my phone so much easier and much nicer. This is a definite must for anyone using android that spends quite a bit of time on facebook you'll find it very easy to use and very intuitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much quicker than the Facebook app 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I was fed up with how slow the official Facebook app was to load and how much space it took up on my phone. This is MUCH quicker, there is more functionality, it's more user friendly and I can have it in PINK! I now have it on my Samsung Galaxy SII and my Kindle Fire HD. It's fab.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 6 Jun 2011
By Michpamoran - Published on Amazon.com

I had some issues when I 1st installed this, it may because I'm using Froyo. I went to Handmark site & got another version. I think what I have now is the old "Flow" version. If the Amazon version is updated & improved, it has to be perfect. I just LOVE the share ability & am not sure why but Youtube videos load much quicker & play better. I really suggest you try this.

As everyone knows by now, the Facebook "app" on the original Fire is just a bookmark. This is the best way to check out facebook on the Fire.
