"This is a great app. I downloaded it to my Iphone. Fast"

May 22, 2012  |  By falbineau

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

I can keep in contact with my facebook friends at all times. Don't have to be at the computer to do this. I love it. It took a while to download because the app is so large, but it was worth!

Cons

None. Messenger pings me when I have a personal message on facebook.

Summary



Updated on May 22, 2012

AND, it's free. I love it!

"Facebook Messenger has a huge memory leak"

April 07, 2012  |  By Maxim_Moneta

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

It is useful due to popups and notifications with no 3rd party software needed. So, target of Facebook seems to be achieved.

Cons

During my testing period, there were no significant updates and I have discovered a huge memory leak in Facebook Messenger. I don't think this kind of app as Facebook Messenger should use that much RAM, this time it's even more then my Aptana Development Studio with all the IDE and quite huge active projects in it.

Summary

Shame on Facebook.
I advise to do not try this app at all, at least closest several month. Epic fail by Facebook.

"It doesn't work for me"

December 22, 2011  |  By DaLeving

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

None whatsoever because nothing works

Cons

I have Windows 7 installed and this Facebook Messenger doesn't work for me at all

Summary

I don't understand all of the good reviews for this app on this site, they must either be friends of or work for Dedrisproject. This app is useless and i wish download.com will explain why they put this app on their site without giving us a review for it first, they probably didn't test it first, that would explain it...

"Great app for chatting and messaging even if offline"

August 09, 2011  |  By sandyjasmine

Can see in the status bar of my phone and get an alert when I get a Facebook message of a chat. Now I don't have to be logged into Facebook to chat with my friends!

Cons

None, but voice recognition would be nice!

Summary

Excellent. Love this little app.

"In one word: horrid"

August 02, 2011  |  By barbixxx

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

I found none whatsoever

Cons

horrible interface, when you exit the program it gives a few bad error messages, and no uninstaller. This program shouldn't even be listed here, very dodgy!

Summary

avoid like the plague

"Does not install correctly - no uninstall option"

February 16, 2011  |  By fagmango

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

None at all.

Cons

It doesn't work at all. It brings up a window asking you to log into facebook. Once you do you are in facebook in a browser window just like you went to facebook.com. I assume this is just stealing passwords.

Summary

DO NOT INSTALL THIS SOFTWARE!!

"Same as a web browser"

October 08, 2010  |  By rebeccathegreat

 |  Version: Facebook Messenger 1.0

Pros

Functional.

Cons

It's exactly the same as a web browser. I am very dissapointed in this chat client, seeing as how it is a browser without an adress bar. If i could give it a negative rating, I would. Worst chat client I've ever downloaded.

Summary

Worst chat client I've ever downloaded.
