    Facebook for Android

    I know the application gets a lot of hate in the market, but I don't see much of a problem with it, other than it has two wakelocks that drain my battery, any idea how to get rid of them?

    "A kernel mechanism for Android power management. When a thread holds a wakelock, the kernel will refrain from entering a low-power state."
    They drain battery life by a good bit, and facebook keeps 2 running in the backround,

    The app is almost exactly the same as the mobile site.

    I prefer the FB App but it periodically has quirks. Mostly it works well, is fast and behaves itself. (I'm unrooted but a student of the rooting world for the time being.)

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure what the root or unrooted means mine is stock and only 2 weeks old my first 1 got wet.

    Rooted means having access to the sudo function on your phone, essentially administrator access, which is restriced from you.

    I find the internet site to be faster over all and MUCH less buggy. Plus Watchdog kept telling me it was misbehaving so I ended up just deleting my Facebook app.
