Expexted more from an official app


1. Hangs up after closing the video
2. Annoying behaviour when You’re back to application after some time, and app wasn’t closed but minimalised - let’s say that You opened an article through facebook and left it for later - You’re opening it again aaaaand You’re at the top of the news feed, and Your article is gone down there...hate it!
3. Becoming slower and slower, but it might be because of my iPhone

My experience with Facebook app


Right let's first off - battery and performance.
What I do recommend for you? Just uninstall Facebook application. I’ve never before think that my iPhone could stay alive up to 2 days. Also I could say that my phone's performance will also improve after uninstall this app.
You can always use Facebook on safari or other web browser.

Secondly - memory.
After one month of using facebook, app size had almost 1GB of occupied memory. Overkill.

Thirdly - working and stability.
Well I’ve never had any problems with stability with this app(as opposed to facebook support etc.).

One big battery hog

Michał Jaskólski

With the background services enabled this app is one big battery hog.
Way too many counter intuitive I changes and useless features.
Timeline is just broken - when one comes back to the app one should see the posts seen earlier (see twitter). Instead the data is reloaded.
