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

Everything I want

Second only to not "doing" Facebook, this is the most secure, least obtrusive way to use Facebook. Fast, efficient, far less storage space, and, in general, better than Facebook's offering in every way.

I'd sooner remain inactive on Facebook than use their app. Just buy this, if you think you need it, you will probably love it--I know I did.

Update: And now they added Instagram. That's a lot of bang for your buck.


I love this app because it blocks ads, and you can set it to show most recent. It usually has one or two small bugs at any given time, but they are good about fixing bugs if you report them, and overall this app is quite handy.

Currently: waiting on the photo saving bug fix. New notifications are great though.

Great FB alternative but....

I've been very happy using this app instead of Facebook, especially since it makes it easy to save interesting articles, etc to Pocket or Evernote for further and future reference. However, the sharing feature has been redesigned in the latest version and now isn't as intuitive or, in the case of trying to save a photo to Camera Roll, doesn't even work at all anymore. Hope they rectify this soon.
