FriendCaster for Facebook: Better and faster than official app
Are you not satisfied with the Facebook mobile app in your device? You are not alone because many users share the same sentiment. The official Facebook app for Android does seem to be unreliable, but thanks to some third-party apps, you can now have a better Facebook experience on your mobile device.
One of the most downloaded and top-rated third-party apps for Facebook is the FriendCaster app, which already has over three million downloads because of its great features that continue to delight Facebook users.
FriendCaster is currently the number one third party app that mobile users use to enjoy the number one social networking site in their mobile device. This app is developed by OneLouder, who also developed the popular app for Twitter users called TweetCaster. User reviews show that FriendCaster is the most preferred third-party app for mobile Facebook users because it sports a nice interface that gives you that Facebook-like feel and also because it’s loaded with lots of features that users can play with.
Features and Development
There sure is a lot of development going on for Android devices, as well as for Facebook itself, and FriendCaster doesn’t want to be left behind. It already released version 5.0, which is said to be specifically for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), sporting a beautiful interface and more features and promising fast Facebook experience on your ICS-powered device.
FriendCaster really gives you that Facebook feel through its interface that does look like the actual Facebook interface. The app gives you some of the most favorite Facebook features like posting a status update, uploading a photo, and checking in. It also gives you notifications which you receive in real-time and faster than any other Facebook app.
You also get to view full news feeds where you can quickly reply, like, or post your own status. You can also keep track of the location of your friends by using the check-in map of the app. The app also supports multiple accounts if you are using several Facebook accounts.
Aside from the resemblance of the app’s interface to Facebook’s interface you can also set custom options to make it a little bit more fit to your personality or gender. You can change the theme of the app to a color theme that you prefer. There are six color themes that you can choose from, and the developers are looking to add more to the selection.
FriendCaster really is the app to go if you want a reliable Facebook mobile app that gives you quick access to your favorite Facebook features in an instant. What’s even better is that FriendCaster is free on the Google Play Store.
