The social network to be on to keep in touch with old friends and make new ones

Facebook is one of the biggest social networks in history, and this app lets you easily access everything you need on the network

FREE in the App Store

Facebook is one of the biggest social networks in history, and this app lets you easily access everything you need on the network.

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.


For those who...

  • Enjoy Facebook
  • Like social networking and keeping in touch with friends
  • Like to share

Not for those who...

  • Don't use Facebook
  • Don't like Facebook
  • Get frustrated with annoying bugs

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.
