What is it about?
Since Facebook finally did make their official app universal, I would suggest trying this one first. I think it's quite elegant with its gesture navigation and easy Apple-like photo viewing. Find out where your friends are on the Nearby map; or chat them up with the slick chat feature. It is free, and it does feel the "Facebookiest", so I'd suggest giving it a shot. It isn't perfect, and doesn't have ALL of the features of the website (though I expect frequent updates and added features, if history is any indication), but it's quite nice. If you don't love it, there are plenty of other options, so read on.

Why we love it
Facebook is a quintessential social networking app these days. While the app may not be the best in terms of optimization and bugs, it's still a necessity for most.
