A surprise find.

The Little Kyng

Third party twitter apps are everywhere; even Friendly has one mixed in. But so far this is the only third party Facebook client I’ve been able to find. And despite being unchallenged it proves to be a very good product.

Pros: Friendly takes the biggest flaws of the stock Facebook app and does away with them. The news feed can be defaulted to most recent. A night mode is optionable. Ads and suggested posts can be removed. And Messenger is included without needing a second app. And best of all, this app does not appear to have the spyware-like qualities of the official app. And it’s also a fraction of the file size.

Cons: There isn’t a lot to criticize on this, actually. The biggest problems I can point out are not being able to tag people in comments or posts by typing their name, and having to press the back button frequently to be able to access the settings. If you use the bar at the top to move between your news feed/messages/etc you’ll find yourself mashing the back button for quite awhile to get to it. The chat could be easier to reach: going to it requires opening settings and turning it on, which is where the previously mentioned issue comes into effect.

Good app!

EOD wifey

So far, I really like having Friendly. Mainly, I they allow me to use the Facebook newsfeed and the messenger all in one app, and it doesn’t take up as much space. It’s been kinda screwy lately, but there was just an update promising to fix a bunch of bugs, so we’ll see how that improves. The only thing I would love to see added is the calling feature. I live somewhere that makes it hard for people to call me on regular phone service, so some people use the messenger or WhatsApp. None of my friends from outside of my area have WhatsApp though, so it makes it a little less helpful. Everyone seems to have FB messenger though, because they’re FORCED to. I have both this app and the original Facebook app on my phone still, because there are a couple of things that I have found hard to do on friendly and I have had to go to the other one to do. But other than those small annoyances, and the lack of a calling feature, I really like this app. Thank you!

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.
