    Fast - Social App's review

    Published: 2012-09-25, by .

    Fast Facebook is an alternative Facebook app that loads activity way faster than the official app

    • It runs smoothly (faster than official FB app)
    • Good-looking ICS-like layout
    • Fast access from its bottom/top bar
    • It loads just few stories on your timeline
    • Layout should be enhanced

    "As fast as Facebook should be"

    Everyone would agree that official Facebook app is great with no too many catches but just a big one: it takes too long to load content. Yes, that's the price for cuteness and for having in our mobile devices all the features available on the web. Fast Facebook comes to solve this. We agree that the layout isn't as cute as the official one, but it loads pictures and content way faster than it. And sometimes that's what matters.

    Although the layout its different than the official one, it looks like great. It is in a ICS-like layout with a top and bottom bar with Gmail-like (or G+-like) icons. From top bar you can check profile, inbox, search, see friend's list, take a look at pictures and refresh. From the bottom bar you can compose message, load picture, share location, update status or see notifications. Thus, you can perform same stuff than in the official app.

    Besides the scenery, there's only one catch: it loads the latest activity of our timeline and it doesn't refresh previous post. This is one of the reasons of its fast loading. Anyway, that's not really a catch unless you have thousands of friends or you check Facebook once every 6 months (exaggerating).

    We promise that it runs smoothly, way more than expected since it's still a beta. A great discovery. High recommendable.

    Good fast app without the bloat of the official Facebook and Messenger apps, BUT could be better. It doesnt let me send photos when I'm directly messaging someone.

    Don't see much advantage over the mobile web version of Facebook.

    Good app! A small problem, maybe you could fix it. If a try to share a post from the timeline via private message to a conversation made up of 2+ people (so not to another single message) the name of that conversation won't show up in the search results, as would normally do when I begin writing a friends' name so that I could share to him that post. I can do that from my desktop but not from this app. So basically it allows me to share a post to anyone from my list of friends and conversions, with the exception of a group conversation/message made up of more people. Thanks!

    This seems to work ok for basic reading (although is just as confusing as FB itself). However, it does not allow me to download or view any file posted (eg PDF) nor can any embedded videos be played. There seems to be no "support" in order to even find if this is expected behaviour or not. I found a link to report a bug, but it says there will be no reply to anything reported. There is a user forum, but it is filled will garbage posts and no real discussion of features or performance.
