    If they could develop an app that combine the blackberry integration of the notifications, and the robustness of the iPhone app... that would be money.

    The bb app has:

    Calendar sync - adds facebook events to your calendar
    address book sync - adds facebook user pictures/+ some other info to your address book
    picture viewer in app
    facebook emails showed up in the app
    ability to filter news feed - ie, show only status updates

    Overall it integrated very nicely with a blackberry.

    I came from the web-os app to the Android one and thought it was amazing.. until I updated my iPod touch to the new app.. The iPod/iPhone app has literally everything the web site (including chat)...

    Did you install the free beta or the paid one?
    The beta. I'm pretty impressed so far. Crazy that a 3rd party could far outdo the Facebook coders. That or Facebook just hasn't decided to allocate the resources for an uber-robust Android client.

    Something tells me they will Thanks for the input on Bloo. I'm going to give it a shot.

    What I like is that on this app, everything you can use in the app stays in the app. Pictures, likes, comments. I'd go out on a limb and say that this app gives you %100 of everything the iPhone app gives you short of inbox and chat. According to the dev it's an API limitation too.

    I would have to admit that I love my droid but miss the bb and iphone app. I like the look of the touch site but the feeds are never in order. So I just deal with the app that came with my droid. Hopefully its being worked on.

    My app does not update my notifications... and I dislike that the news feed is not a constant update, but rather the quickest turnaround of 30 minutes. Going to try out Bloo and see what I think of it I guess.


    Updated - already don't like Bloo either... takes forever to load the news feed... sheesh!

    FB on Android blows, period. Looks ugly, photos look horrible, and no inbox! Even the mobile site is better. I'm coming from an iPhone and using a Nexus One. The iphone version completely replicates the web experience in a very slick interface.

    They are slowly adding features to the Android version. I'm sure in a year or so, the featureset on the Android Facebook app will be more comparable to that on the iPhone. It's just that Facebook for Android came out only a few months ago. It'll get better I'm sure!

    The ONLY thing that I don't like about the Facebook for Android app is the notification system. Very few things trigger the Facebook app itself to notify you, otherwise it's through Email. I hope this is addressed in future updates, I would like wall posts to also come through the Facebook app, much like the BB version. Unfortunately, as it stands, the notifications still bring you to the mobile website.

    Other than that, I have no other complaints.

    The Android Facebook App (unlike the BBerry Facebook App) does not have a way to manually connect contacts between Facebook and Contacts if the Android doesn't locate the exact contact.

    So, for example, if a contact is listed as a couple and you would like to connect that to one of the couple in Facebook, it can't be done presently. Also, if you use a shortened version or a nickname in contacts, Android Facebook often doesn't find the contact.

    I'm trying out Bloo. I'm liking it so far. The only thing I can't do so far is reply to a message in the inbox.
