"Facebook simpler and quicker"

Reviewed by / Jul 04, 2011

Enjoy the Facebook experience as its best

FriendCaster for Facebook is an Android app that allows you to enjoy Facebook to the fullest.

After installing the app, it will ask you to change the settings in order to customize FriendCaster to your taste. You can then login on Facebook and allow permissions in order for it to work properly.

The application has a great design and it's very functional; it notifies on messages, birthdays and simply facebook notifications so you're always aware of everything (by Popups). It also provides a menu with all the main options such as News feed, Profile, Friends, Messages, Groups, Events... so you can access to everything quicker and easier.
It also fives you the chance to change the privacy setting for each Status or post and re-share your friend's posts, as well as add some of them to your favorite lists and the typical Facebook features. In addition, the app includes a widget for the homescreen and vibrate, Led and sound options for the notifications. However, one of the most popular Facebook features, the chat, it's not available yet.
In general, this is an excellent non-official Facebook application, developed by Handmark. It works well, smooth and the design is cleaner than in other similar apps. Be sure to check it out and enjoy Facebook as its best.

    I use it because I have another account on the official app and needed to have 2 separate accounts. Friencaster doesn't notify me when a new massage arrives, so I have to keep checking the messages over and over. I wish this one was as good as the other app. I like some features here, like zip it! and themes, but is not enough.

    Every few days, this app prevents the device from sleeping and drains the battery in under 2 hours.

    Works fine for news feed stuff, and I like how liking and commenting works, but the notification system is pretty much broken, and messages don't always receive/notify properly.
