The more I use it the more I'm beginning to appreciate it's design. I love how it looks and the functions are easy to understand and move smoothly. I'm getting use to it after using the Facebook app or similarly designed apps, but I love this direction and lack of intrusive ads. Thank you.
UPDATE: I'm still using this app, it is truly the best Facebook app I've used and I highly recommend it to others. That being said, with extended use I noticed some glitches. One, stickers don't remain downloaded for use in messages. I have to download them over and over every time I want to use one. Two, reading articles inside this app are terrible. Scrolling up closes the article and makes it annoying to keep reopening it just to try to read something back at the top of the article. Three, I haven't found a way to tag pictures. Four, this isn't a problem, but the feature to be able to use stickers in the comments of people's post would be nice 😊. If I notice anything else I'll be sure to update again! Thank you and keep up the great work. 😄
Once I have it a chance I loved it
At first when it came out I tried it for about a day and thought that this app was crap, it was weird, confusing, and not user friendly. So I kept using the reg Facebook app. Later I was getting very bored of the reg Facebook app and was ready for something completely different, so I decided to go back to this app and give it another try. It took prob a good week of making my self use it and learn how everything works. But now that I've learn how it works I can say I have now deleted my reg Facebook app, this does everything it did or everything I used it for but its deferent like I wanted and the setup on it is very clever and well put together. So I'd recommend this app to anyone who uses Facebook but is tired of the old boring way it has been. Give it about a week and you'll like it better. I have it 4 out of 5 stars because although it is very nice, it still doesn't give me that "best experience ever" feel.
Beautiful, but needs some work.
I really like the way this app looks. It is very beautiful, and much more pleasing to the eyes than the original Facebook app. I love the way it simulates a newspaper, I think that is very creative and a great way to show my newsfeed. That being said, I think there are a lot of glitches that make it very frustrating to use. One in particular is that many times when I try to watch a video the audio will not work. I've tried turning the sound up, I've tried turning my sound off and on, I've tried closing the video and then reopening it, and nothing works. This is very frustrating. Also, in Facebook groups there's no way to add somebody to the group, and there's no way to add somebody to a group message. Again, this is very frustrating. If they were to fix these glitches I would love this app and possibly give it a five star rating.
