FaceDroid: Facebook Done Right For Your Android/ICS Tablet
« on: January 31, 2012, 07:44:08 pm »

There's no denying that Facebook is one of the most popular and often used websites in the world.  With a user base approaching 1 billion members there's more people on Facebook than the entire populations of the U.S. and europe combined.   But let's face it...using Facebook on an Android device has never been the best of experiences.   Often you need to have a separate chat client for you Facebook IMs and many dedicated Facebook apps are simply a mess making it hard to see your friend's news updates and photos in a clear, unified presentatoin.   

Enter FaceDroid, a new app by Platinum Apps, the developers that brought us Air Hockey and Platinum Tasks, two great tablet optimized Apps.  Platinum Apps specializes in doing apps just for Honeycomb and the new Ice Cream Sandwich and it shows.  FaceDroid has a very clean, intuitive layout that makes not just viewing, but using Facebook a dream.  There's integrated instant messaging, photo galleries, easy to use status updates, commenting and more.  Here are just some of FaceDroid's features:

•   Share status updates
•   Comment, like and tag photos
•   Write on your friends' walls
•   Chat in real-time
•   Send and receive messages
•   Search/browse your list of friends and check out their info, wall, photos and videos
•   See who's birthday it is & write on their wall
•   View and respond to friend requests & event invitations
•   Long-press photos to save to device
•   Long-press posts to delete (only posts made in facedroid)

But that's not all.  The Platinum Apps developers are hard at work at adding a whole bunch of new features and if there's one you want that is missing they are very responsive to requests.  Here's a few added features that they are currently working on: 

•   “Places” (check-in to locations & see where friends are)
•   “Pages” (manage your Facebook Pages)
•   "Groups" (view & have discussions with others in your groups)
•   Multiple account support
•   Online friends at top of friends list
•   Settings section for greater control over notifications & more
•   Other exciting additions to make facedroid even more social (and useful)

FaceDroid finally makes the Facebook experience on your Honeycomb or ICS tablet enjoyable and full features.  Grab it in the Android Market for only $1.49 at the link below.
