Editors' review

The official Facebook for Android app is undoubtedly the best way to interact with Facebook on your Android smartphone. An overhauled interface (that closely resembles the iPhone app, we might add) presents seven icons for your news feed, profile, friends, photos, message in-box, events (like birthdays), and pending friend requests. Below the icon dashboard is a photo reel that lets you swipe through thumbnails of friends' recently uploaded photos, although there's no context surrounding the image until you click through to your buddy's profile page. Even then, you won't be able to enlarge the image until you click again.

The start screen is also home to a notifications bar that slides up to share the latest news. In addition, there are shortcut buttons for updating your status and searching your friend list or the global Facebook roster.

Though the update is a vast improvement to the feature-thin predecessor, we're still looking forward to seeing Facebook further refine the app.
