Decent app, but definitely not flawless
The good: I can read and send messages without installing Messenger, and the app seems to update better/more frequently than the official Facebook app does.
The bad: Quite frequently, it will shut off in the middle/end of my typing a post (and obviously, all the typing is lost). Not only that, but from time to time, I'll type a post, hit "post", and it'll disappear.
By far the biggest issue I've had, though, is that if I don't close out of the app before locking my phone, it turns my phone off, and it can be hours before it will turn on again. Full battery doesn't matter; plugging it in doesn't help. I'm using an iPhone 5s; not a single other app has ever done this, but Friendly does it at least half the time I forget to exit the app before locking my phone.
Makes Facebook enjoyable again!
Pages load so much faster when ads and trackers are blocked. Breeze through those links with ten ‘Nexts.’ It tells you what it’s doing. On one link it blocked a combined 5 ads/trackers; on another 10! I don’t mind an ad as I’m scrolling down but some of these new fangled ads make navigating a page on a phone nigh impossible and Friendly ends all that. Something tells me I’ve seen the end of weekly 250 megabyte updates also.
Wonderful set of great features!
Having used this for a week, here are the 5 top reasons I discovered to use and even pay up the small amount (for #3, completely ad free) for this app:
1. Can protect via personal pin/Touch ID.
2. Able to post from the page/group admin (does by default) on mobile.
3. No ads, includes ad stripping in links. Read that again.
4. In one app you have FB, Messenger and Instagram, with a smaller footprint and memory requirement.
5. Night mode.
The drawback of a third party app is that iOS doesn’t associate it when make actual app calls. Like “share to Facebook” asks you to login via the web as it will not launch friendly. If I am wrong, please correct me. I have not found any word otherwise. Still a good app for reasons above but beware if you share a lot.
