    "Facebook deserves better than this on the 'droid."

    February 13, 2011  |   By bcostelloe

    Pros

    Great presentation laid out in a similar fashion to the iPhone version. Photos are presented well with easy access to albums. Places now available on the 'droid version.

    Cons

    Connection problems (despite running on a newly formatted Samsung) plague the software which stops the app gaining an extra 2 stars. Get it sorted Facebook and you've got yourselves a flawless product. Also unable to "like" comments.

    Summary

    For the most part this app works OK but when it stops connecting properly you are so much better off just throwing your phone over to the browser and running Facebook from there instead. It's a shame that the connection issue exists as this is a great app otherwise. But these connection issues can... and do render it unusable at times.
