Description

The official Facebook app uses a lot of internal storage. That is the primary reason we developed this app. Basically, this app will pull up the mobile version of Facebook on the fly, so it will be as fast as your current internet connection speeds are.

The ideal user for this app would be someone with an older Android phone (like an LG Ally or LG Optimus) that either cannot support the latest version of Facebook on their phone, gets a lot of Force Closes, or has a very limited amount of Internal Storage space. Other reasons you may want to try this app out is if you’re not a complete Facebook addict and you don’t care about having the latest greatest Facebook app, you’d just like to have occasional access to Facebook.

BY NO MEANS WILL THIS APP GIVE YOU A LIMITED FACEBOOK EXPERIENCE. The first time you log in it will ask you to download the official App. Ignore this message. Next, it will ask you to remember your password. If you say YES to this option, it will keep you logged in for extra convenience. Keep reading if you are curious what the specific pros and cons are between this App and the Official Facebook App.

HERE ARE THE PROS & CONS OF USING THIS APP:

Pros:
* Works on any Android
* Can access timeline, your profile, your fan pages, your messages etc.
* MUCH smaller file size than Facebook’s Official App.
* App size will not increase by usage or updates.
* App gets smaller if put on SD card.
* Never needs updated, when Facebook updates the mobile version of Facebook this app automatically gets upgraded as well (because of it loading on-the-fly).
* Rarely (if ever) force closes. I haven’t had it force close on me yet.

Cons:
* Does not sync contacts.
* No notifications.

HERE ARE THE PROS & CONS OF USING THE OFFICIAL ANDROID APP:

Pros:
* Slightly faster load times (depending on your Android!)
* Notifications
* Sync with your contacts

Cons:
* Huge file size
* Updates are annoying
* Updates cause file size to increase
* Force closes a lot (depending on your Android!)
* Requires fast processor
