Friendly Plus with Ad Blocker
By Friendly App Studio
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Friendly is a fast, simple and secure app to access you Facebook and Instagram accounts. With over 10 million downloads, it is the leading Facebook app alternative for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac.
Friendly Plus with Ad Blocker is the premium version of Friendly Social. It includes Friendly's popular Ad Blocker.
Unlike the official Facebook application, Friendly has been optimized to save space on your device, and preserve your battery. With Friendly, you only need one app for all your Facebook, Instagram and Facebook messenger needs.
For users with multiple Facebook or Instagram Accounts, or families sharing a device, Friendly makes it easy to switch between accounts.
Friendly offers many ways to customize your Facebook experience:
- News feed Option: order timeline by Most Recent or Top Stories
- Facebook Messenger (no need for an extra app)
- Pick your favorite color
- Setup a 4-digit passcode to secure access to your account
- Quick navigation to your favorites friends
- Configurable Ad Blocker (save bandwidth and block ads and trackers)
For Instagram accounts:
- Photo zoom
- Download Photos
- Access Instagram on either iPhone or iPad
- Switch between multiple Instagram accounts
- Pick your favorite color
NOTE: You cannot upload photos to Instagram using Friendly. This is unfortunately a limitation of Instagram, which does not let third-party app post pictures. We will add this feature as soon as this is made possible
Many other small features differentiate Friendly from the official Facebook, Messenger and Instagram apps. To name a few:
- Edit Comments
- Add photo to comments
- Copy and Paste text to other applications
- Save Images
- Save to Pocket
- Save to Reading List
- Article View by Readability

Notifications don't work
I love this app and would give it 5 stars except for a few big things.
1) notifications simply don't work. (Yes I have turned on, even the faster notifications option) let me clarify, notifications show up while your in the app(badge in menu bar but no sound or banner to tell you) but if you leave the app you must keep manually checking to see if you have new notifications. The app doesn't tell you once you close it.
2) annoying that you must go all the way back to the top of your feed to see menu bar. (To see notifications that the app doesn't alert you of).
3) there's a bug where if you make a status update and click more to select "watching", once you select what your watching and hit post you must then hit the back button a few times and then your returned to the status update screen where you must hit cancel. (This is all after having posted the update). Why not just automatically take me back to the news feed after I post my status?
I do love this app a lot and if these issues I mentioned would be fixed this would be my one and only Facebook app. Unfortunately it seems the developers aren't working on the app anymore. Please continue developing this app, I even bought the paid app, and purchased the in app ad blocking in the free app. That's how much I love this app. It just needs some polishing.
Best App for Facebook/ Instagram !!!
This is this best app I've ever used for Facebook and Instagram ! Yes it does both simultaneously and does it very well! You can also have multiple Facebook and Instagram accounts all logged in together. The free version does have a small ad bar at the top but you won't even pay it any attention, but I loved his app so much I paid for the ad free version , which I almost never do and it's worth every penny! I've noticed a lot of people complaining about Facebook's battery drain , well it's not an issue with this app. I've seen big improvements in that area. And the BEST feature to me is that you DON'T NEED FACEBOOK MESSENGER to send and receive messages, you can do it from within this app !! 👍🏽👍🏽👌🏽 Give it a try, Thank Me Later !!
Notifications need fixed
Overall a much better option than Facebook, however notifications need fixed BADLY. I have tried turning on notifications as banners but they NEVER work. I constantly get a banner telling me "Notifications are OFF. Click to reactivate" but the app shows they are turned ON, and they are ON in my settings, so something isn't working. 🤔
My best guess is the app wants you to turn background app refresh, but 1) that kills battery life and 2) other social apps show notifications without it. The developer needs to fix this or I may be looking for another option.
