I'm unfortunately still on the old Facebook layout so the app doesn't look right :(

Interesting, do you know if there's a way to switch your account back to the old layout? If we can come up with a way to test it we should be able to fix that

I'll look into this app. Right now I used the HPE4LX4MH9FL code. Thanks.

 

EDIT.. Sadly it doesn't look quite right here on my end either. I get the same look as the poster above does.

Thanks for the code, i used A9R7HE3M3PFF :)

When i log in and enter my 2-factor authentication code its quite hard to read the white text:

I also appear to have the same layout issues as Tom Bonez, in addition if you have a list e.g. of pages you have liked, the on this list box appears to be half in the news feed:

If you need anymore screenshots or anything let me know.

 

Probably not related to this app, but how do i get the "new" Facebook layout, i've noticed my work Facebook account's layout is different to my personal one. I guess it's just a waiting game?

Yeah, basically you go to this page and click the button on the bottom. I clicked it about a year ago and am still on the old layout so don't expect it anytime soon. ;)

okay guys, If NewGenBook looks weird, make sure you have US language set! not only will NewGenBook work the way it was meant to but also you will get the Graph Search!

 

so login via your browser and change the language settings:

Same issue with the old layout. I joined the list a very long time a go they are incredibly slow the roll out. If you create a new account you automatically get the new layout i believe... seems like this app may have been a little premature, it's a shame because the screenshots look really nice.

Also managed to grab a code, thanks.
