I don't know if anyone mentioned it but I just noticed the Official Facebook app is now available for Windows 8.1

It's nice, but believe it or not, while I wanted this, I prefer the web site. Can't turn off Chat :/, that's big for me. Don't like the layout. I have 27" monitors. Will be nice on tablets and phone though I think.

 

Edit: On second though, snapped, particularly 1/3 screen, it's a totally different experience. Looks and acts just like the phone apps on iOS and Android. Pretty nice. Clearly made to be snapped.

So using this app on desktop...

 

The news feed scrolls normally, but when you go into private messages the scroll on the mouse is inverted like you're scrolling by finger... urgh.

It seems ok so far but if it's supposed to have tile notifications they're not working for me. Just the plain "f" tile always. :(

Mine took a while to animate. I don't think it did until I got a notification.

Yes my live tile didn't work at first but is now. It is ok as an app. Not far removed from the web version.
