Friendly is a fast, simple and secure app to access you Facebook and Instagram accounts. With over 10 million downloads, it is the leading Facebook app alternative for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac.
Friendly Plus with Ad Blocker is the premium version of Friendly Social. It includes Friendly's popular Ad Blocker.
Unlike the official Facebook application, Friendly has been optimized to save space on your device, and preserve your battery. With Friendly, you only need one app for all your Facebook, Instagram and Facebook messenger needs.
For users with multiple Facebook or Instagram Accounts, or families sharing a device, Friendly makes it easy to switch between accounts.
Friendly offers many ways to customize your Facebook experience:
- News feed Option: order timeline by Most Recent or Top Stories
- Facebook Messenger (no need for an extra app)
- Pick your favorite color
- Setup a 4-digit passcode to secure access to your account
- Quick navigation to your favorites friends
- Configurable Ad Blocker (save bandwidth and block ads and trackers)
For Instagram accounts:
- Photo zoom
- Access Instagram on either iPhone or iPad
- Switch between multiple Instagram accounts
- Pick your favorite color
NOTE: You cannot upload photos to Instagram using Friendly. This is unfortunately a limitation of Instagram, which does not let third-party app post pictures. We will add this feature as soon as this is made possible
Many other small features differentiate Friendly from the official Facebook, Messenger and Instagram apps. To name a few:
- Edit Comments
- Add photo to comments
- Copy and Paste text to other applications
- Save Images

Ratings and Reviews
Great client for Facebook
I love the small footprint of this app. I’ve had no problems accessing any Facebook features when using the Friendly app. A hint about enlarging your newsfeed, be sure that you’ve clicked on “follow” for each of your friends that you want added to your newsfeed page.
The ad blocking feature and screening posts by keyword are features that I really like. I’ve read some reviews saying that videos won’t post, trying to copy comments doesn’t work, it’s glitchy, and it’s slow. I’ve experienced none of these problems. In fact, I’ve found it much easier to locate older videos that I posted years ago, copying photos and text isn’t a problem, and Facebook Messenger functions great, without having to download an additional app.
My real only complaint would be that the app doesn’t grab the profile photo I use on Facebook, despite my contacting the developer, and getting assurances that this problem would be addressed in the next update. It remains an unsolved glitch. Note to the developer, fix the profile photo problem, and I’ll change my review from 4 to 5 stars.
Would I purchase this app again, or recommend it to a friend? Absolutely!
Better and better
After a long period of seeming unresponsiveness from the authors, they are back on track. The new update gives me more of what I want: the functionality of FB and Messenger without the unwanted content and tracking, ads and so on.
My remaining wish is that they would rework the stacked pages experience where each post or comment brings you to a new page, but if you go back through the sequence of pages you can return to pages with a stale state, for instance notifications appear new again when you have already viewed them. Successive pressings of the “home screen” icon will eventually return you to a fully refreshed home screen, but it can be disorienting.
However, I like using the app more than I did, and feel comfortable recommending it to friends. Great work!
Deletes your edits before you can post- extremely frustrating
Anytime you’re editing a post you need to scroll up by swiping down to get to the top in order to press the post key on the upper right corner. But, if you scroll a little bit too far the page your on refreshes and you loose everything you wrote. The same thing happens when you type a long post and try to add photos to it; I’ve had so many thoughtfully written posted get deleted because of this bug that I’m deleting this app and going back to Facebooks app. At this point I don’t care what anyone does to me or my data, or who they sell it to; I just want to be able to post anything without loosing everything I wrote over half the time. How is it that this bug persists? Why didn’t I uninstall this app a long time ago? If you’re precise enough to scroll without causing the page to refresh before click the post button, then you’ll probably be really good at gold cause that’s what it feels like I’m playing. But the difference is if you don’t scroll a hole-in-one every time, you loose everything you’ve written!
