Windows 8/RT Facebook appsI have tried quite a lot of fb apps on my RT device, and none of them worked well for me, for different reasons:
- one of the real benefits of a fb app would be a live tile displaying newsfeed, notifications, message inbox counts etc., and lock screen or toast notifications. Existing apps dont implement these well (I havent found a single app yet which shows the message inbox count or friendship requests on the live tile).
- Non of the non-browser apps are full feature - I think users need to manage groups, invitations, photo albums, fb applications etc. quite frequently.
- All the apps have issues with content layout - some with YouTube link previews, others with photos...
So what would a really useful, perfect fb app have to be like?
- official app (so that all the content and all important features, that are accessible in the browser version, are accessible in the app)
- more or less full feature
- adjustable live tile (or multiple live tiles) showing newsfeed, notifications, friendship requests, inbox count, etc.
- lock screen and toast notifications
- well designed content layout
