Company said a few months ago a brand new, working, faster, facebook app would be released in July. August 11 now, still no sign of it. Typical FB?

Be grateful your getting an updated app at all! Chances are us Android users will be waiting months/years/never to get it after the iOS version is updated! so be patient, there are people far worse off then you :laugh:

Yeah, the Android version horrible. Between slow load times an horrible battery drain (Yes, it drained my batter BAD... ran numerous tests to prove) I had to uninstall. Now I just use a bookmark from chrome.

The android version sucks monkey nuts. I use friendcaster instead, much faster and simpler. (Didn't mean to come and troll this topic, just saw it in mini spy. So forgive me if it seemed that way)

Did Facebook ever officially say it was coming and when? I've seen plenty of sites posting rumors that one is in development but I didn't see anything from Facebook themselves.

All facebook apps in all platforms are equally bad :/ Very much unusable

Luckily, WP7 does have the People hub for light facebook features haha. But still generally, I wait to go home for my facebooking.

I'm reckoning you're one of the very few. All types of loading screens and errors reported by friends and others alike.

They did not state a month or a date. I have no idea where you got that from. In fact, I'm pretty sure Facebook didn't even confirm the app. It was a report in one of the American papers (either The New York Times, The Washington Post, or The Wall Street Journal), citing information from sources familiar with the company's plans.

A date or month was not confirmed by Facebook.

Also, this is not typical Facebook. When have they ever announced a month or date for a product and then not met it? I can't think of any instances, and I don't think there have been any.

Actually, toast notifications are available in the official app (not the one integrated with the operating system but the one you can download from the Marketplace). They exist in it, but they don't seem to work very well :p

Stop your whining ... lol. Facebook is free. Be grateful for anything they give you.
