    Default Facebook = Fail!

    So yesterday I was with a group of iPhone users (ATT) at the home opener of the Texas Rangers with my Motorola Atrix on ATT as well. All of us were checking-in, uploading pics and posting updates. Well everyone but me. The Facebook app for Android is full of bugs, all kinds of api errors. This is not the first time I've experienced issues with it. I know the Facebook for Android app has lagged behind the iPhone app in terms of features but I am surprised they haven't released a version with less bugs.

    I am very disappointed as Facebook is the app I use most.

    You would think with them working on a Android based Facebook phone they would be able to develop a great app. But maybe their thinking is to get Android users to buy the Facebook phone instead.

    The Facebook and MySpace app on Android... need solid update on both.
    I was surprised to find out how way behind these apps are on Android.

    Its a shame to see Google just sit back and let this happing I know they can say something to Facebook about the app. All the updates we've gotten are a waste of time and gets your hopes up for nothing

    You know Facebook has a full-featured and very stable mobile site and as of late I've just been using that. Sure it's web-based but it's a whole lot better than the often non-functioning FB app for android.

    It's just sad we have to be second class citizens since Facebook won't develop a proper app for us Android users.

    They will soon as we stop using it, as I have. Until then they figure what's the point?

    I agree. Not being able to change your profile picture, not being able to Like pictures. You can only comment on them.
    It's sad when the mobile site has more features and work better than the app itself.

    Now the iOS FB app mirrors the new mobile site. Hopefully something is in the works for Android.

    Just like everyone else, I think the app is garbage. When they added chat I thought to myself that they really finally listening to their users, but alas. Maybe one day they will care, but by the looks of things I doubt it.

    When I write on someone's wall through the facebook app on my phone (Droid X) and they reply, I never get notifications for it. Neither on the app or on the actual facebook website. When I write on someone's wall through the website, I always get notifications.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I have the same problem even on my iPhone. Overall notifications on Facebook these past few weeks have been really buggy. Be it mobile or desktop.

    Actual app notifications suck no matter the platform. I rely on email. But even the email doesn't get the notifications sometimes. And that's when it's a Facebook issue.

    Facebook needs to figure their crap out! I just installed a different app for social networking and can't login to facebook from that app. I've tried many different apps and can't login on any of them. So i've come to the conclusion that it's not those apps, it must be my settings on the phone. Any ideas? I refuse to use the stock Facebook app anymore. Too many force closes and lock ups.

    Check your Facebook settings from the full website. You might need to grant the apps permissions from the account itself. The stock fb app was updated yesterday if you havent tried it.
