Appreciate the passcode - Paid app works better than free
I got Friendly for the passcode locking feature. Though my iPad is mine I let my family use it and my husband kept snooping around on my FB page then complaining about what he'd read. While I don't have any big secrets to hide this got annoying, and Friendly was the only app I could find with this feature. I tried out the free version first and had tons of trouble with it, going very slow and crashing. Since I couldn't find a better alternative though I went ahead and uploaded the paid version hoping it would be better. So far it has been! Much quicker, and no crashing so far. Hope it stays that way. The only complaint I have about the features in app right now is that there doesn't seem to be an easy way to navigate to my private groups. I have to find a post in my newsfeed and go that way. Maybe there is a way and I haven't found it yet, but for the added privacy I'm willing to make the trade.
Great app, one needed change
I have used this app for most of the day. I love it so far. No bloated software and it has used only 1% of my battery despite the official Facebook app that has used 17% with an hour's use earlier this morning.
The major change I would like to see: the banner with notifications and the like NEEDS to be on the screen at all times. I love that it disappears as I scroll down my wall, but then in order to access this banner again to check notifications, I'm required to scroll to the VERY top. This is cumbersome. The notification ribbon needs to reappear once I begin scrolling upwards (much like the search bar in Safari or Chrome). This change would give this app 5 stars.
Pleased so far
Composed earlier: So many features that the FB app does not provide. Enjoy FB much more. The Zuckster should give you guys a cut. Been glitchy lately, though, but I guess those are update hiccups that will be resolved soon? Just wish there was a way to make the navigation icons on bottom corners transparent or smaller as they obstruct full viewing. Is there a way to scan/swipe through photo albums rather than clicking at photos one at a time?
Latest issue: Now why is there a white block where a photo or article was viewed? Can't get rid of it until I delete and reinstall app. It takes up nearly my entire screen. Fourth time to do reinstall. Getting old.
