Ratings and ReviewsSee All
So far, I really like having Friendly. Mainly, I they allow me to use the Facebook newsfeed and the messenger all in one app, and it doesn’t take up as much space. It’s been kinda screwy lately, but there was just an update promising to fix a bunch of bugs, so we’ll see how that improves. The only thing I would love to see added is the calling feature. I live somewhere that makes it hard for people to call me on regular phone service, so some people use the messenger or WhatsApp. None of my friends from outside of my area have WhatsApp though, so it makes it a little less helpful. Everyone seems to have FB messenger though, because they’re FORCED to. I have both this app and the original Facebook app on my phone still, because there are a couple of things that I have found hard to do on friendly and I have had to go to the other one to do. But other than those small annoyances, and the lack of a calling feature, I really like this app. Thank you!
OK for Facebook, BAD for Instagram
This app is a fine substitute if you just want to get Facebook off your phone, but it definitely has its flaws. There's no way to upload photos into people's comment sections. I always have to go to Facebook's mobile site and do it there. There is also no way to upload video from your phone to Facebook, I'm not sure if they'll be able to fix that, but it would be nice. The ads can be a little annoying but it's what you'd expect.
If you are planning on also using this for Instagram, forget about it. Just keep the instagram app because the Friendly version is terrible. While the photo filters do work, the editing tools do not show up at all- it's just a blank empty space where they should be. I've updated this app several times and it's never been fixed, I think they only care about the Facebook portion of it. There is also NO way to receive direct messages from Instagram- I just found out today that people had been messaging me months ago and I never knew about it.
Twitter seems to work fine on here, I haven't noticed any problems, but I also don't use it as much.
The app periodically cleans itself which is good, and while it's nice to have everything in one place, just keep in mind that their main focus is Facebook so if you have other social media you might be better off keeping the original apps for those.
Was a great 8 years until now
I loved the Friendly App. I’ve used it exclusively since it first came out, way back in 2010 or 2011. I told everyone about it. I tried the official Facebook app many times but I always delete it and returned to Friendly. I liked that the news feed stayed on Most Recent and it was easy to navigate. I like that I can personalize it by color and add other social media accounts. But this most recent update is awful. I used to be able to click a link and it would take me to Safari. Now, it doesn’t take me to Safari- I have to copy the link, exit Friendly, then go to Safari and paste and go. Trying to go back to the news feed after going to someone’s post and thread doesn’t always go back to the news feed, or it takes me so far such as back to the top of the feed. After checking notifications, I get stuck there and can’t get back to the newsfeed. There are just so many things wrong with this and I’m so disappointed. There’s a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I definitely will not be downloading the official Facebook app, and I’m ready to delete this one. It was a nice run, but your updated look is not better than before.
