Perhaps your question is better answered when you list your specific gripes...

The latest version 1.1.2 seems perfect to me now. In fact, it's the first time I've stopped using the mobile version in favor of the app specific version. I suggest people who haven't upgraded, to do so, and report back if they still see deficiencies.
P.S. - moved to app forum and updated title to be more specific (this helps users who are searching).

Personally I hate the damn thing.
The app is always taking me outside the app when I view photos from the newsfeed, yet it can show photos within the app from someone's profile. Same goes for comments and likes.
The fact that from the newsfeed, it tries to take me to the mobile page for every fricken thing I want to do makes me hate the app almost entirely and I seldom use it.
It looks like it was published when it was halfway finished, like the coders abandoned it but somebody said "Well, let's push it out anyway". Reminds me of pinching a turd in the middle before you're done.
Shoddy work and I am not going to praise it just because we technically have one. I prefer the touch.facebook.com URL to the app because then I can stay in one place and do everything.

I agree with the critics of this app - it is missing a lot of the functionality present on the iPhone facebook app, and there's no reason it should be. Not only can't we do email in the app, but you can't visit groups or pages you're a fan of without going to the browser, and you can't do the live feed (as opposed to news feed). More than that, it's not well laid out, with just a bunch of shortcuts on the home screen; they should integrate a live/news feed or find some way to make use of that screen real estate.

What are the differences between the iPhone and Android apps? Feature-wise?
I'm curious, because coming from WebOS' official facebook app (which essentially is just the newsfeed-- that's it), I love Android's.
But that may be just me not knowing what's 'best' out there.

i'm quite surprised that the current facebook app for android is not as good as the blackberry one. i had the blackberry one and you can basically do most of what you want to do on the app itself. with the android one, you have to go to browser to reply to messages or reply to replies. what i also liked about the blackberry one is that it notified me when people replied to my posts/messages/replies. the android one doesn't doe that. you have to go into the notifications and load them to see. and even then, in order to reply to anything it has to take you to the browser instead of remaining on the app.

Bloo still lacks in some sense as it is a bit slow, however it is much better than the official app. Part of it is because of API restrictions but some is programming.
I use both because the official app puts your friends in your contacts list and depending on what you are doing it is faster. Bloo is much better at notifications so I use that to view comments and what not.
