Description

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
- 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

Perfect wrapper for Facebook!

Allpossiblenicknamestaken

I’ve lost track of how many friends and family members I’ve turned on to this app. Three killer features:
- It blocks ads, popups, and trackers, so it’s safe to read that oddball article your aunt posted.
- It has a keyword filter for your newsfeed, so you don’t have to see those oddball articles your aunt posts about that politician you hate.
- It wraps the mobile Facebook interface, so everything works...but Facebook can’t “accidentally” leave the microphone open in the background or rifle through your pictures.
At this point, I’ve uninstalled the regular Facebook app from my phone—I don’t trust it anymore, and I just use Friendly to Facebook safely.

Problems from the start

Davebag

Just purchased the app and I’m having issues already. First: The app is not showing any posts at all. It just says “Welcome to Facebook”. No matter how many times I refresh or restart the app, it says the same thing. Second: I posted something as a test to make sure it was working correctly and was unable to delete it by touching the post options (the three horizontal dots). I even tried to reinstall the app twice.

This app seems like a wonderful thing if it would work properly.

Edit: There seems to be an issue with the Most Recent sorting. Most Recent shows no posts at all, yet Top Stories makes the app function normally so far. Changed my rating, but the Most Recent option needs to be addressed.

Good, not great

Dirk Niblick

Pros:
• Can view Facebook news feed in most “recent mode” with ads and other annoying things like “do you know these people?” removed and most of the other parts of it work great.
• Instagram works a lot better too.
• Price of app is worth viewing Facebook without ads (it’d be more worth it if Twitter and Instagram got the same treatment).

Cons:
• Notifications are spotty and inconsistent.
• Twitter still shows sponsored tweets and you can’t swipe from the left edge to go backwards. This wouldn’t be annoying if the “back” arrow didn’t appear at the top sometimes while on the bottom other times.
• The Friendly menu where you can choose between Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - why do I have to scroll this? It only allows for those three apps to be on this page, so why not just display the three buttons on screen at the same time? Also, why can’t I add others (Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest) on that menu?
• NEW: It’d be nice if I could switch between the sites without losing my place. If I wanted to post a Tweet to Facebook. I’m starting to hop between this and the other app, which is making me wonder why I’m using this one...
