Love this app!
When FB started forcing people to download messenger to read/reply/create messages, I searched for an alternative and found this app. It not only lets you use messages within the app, it also easily manages multiple accounts and password protects them (just in case you share your device with your kids). It offers different color schemes. It will sort your news feed the way you ask it to (FB keeps changing from newest top top stories!). I also really like how when you leave the main page of your newsfeed to read something, it will take you back to the exact spot you were at, rather than back to the top of your feed.
If there was one thing I would change it would be to get rid of the ads (for free 😉).
Have tried it sporadically over the past 8 months. I like the look and feel and flow. I use it to quickly check multiple FB accounts and my business pages but I have given up trying to post on it. Too many times I have gone through great efforts to type out a reply and when I hit post it simply crashes- my hard work is for naught.
So if I do find myself typing, even a short reply, I now copy it so that when it crashes, I can paste it into the regular FB app. Note I said "when" it crashes, not "if". That's the reason for 2 stars. I have yet to launch and use this app without it crashing at some point.
Crashing when adding pictures
I'm on an iPad 3, using iOS 8.3, when writing this review.
Adding pictures to a message causes an instant crash of black screen and returning me to my homescreen on my iPad. It's a shame, I used to love this app since Facebook can barely remain stable on the Safari browser without crashing and the Facebook app is a pain. But without being able to post messages with pictures, probably one of the main functions of Facebook, all this app is a notification to tell me to check Facebook on some other medium.
