    The official app really, really sucks. It is far too limited and I find myself constantly going into Dolphin HD to do what I want on facebook.

    Are there any good free or paid apps for facebook that are NOT the official release? I've searched here, I've Googled, I even checked AppBrain but everything comes back to either nothing related or to the official app.

    I need something better.

    Maybe it's case sensitive?

    Thanks for the suggestions on Bloo, folks... but it's not really working out well so far.

    • It tells me I am not a friend of myself and I cannot view my own profile.
    • It asked for Inbox permission, but keeps telling me that I need permission even after I allowed it.
    • It seems to delete the feeds each time it is closed and then downloads them all over again when re-launched. This makes it very slow so far.
    • Out of all of my friends in the friends list, I can view the profiles of exactly TWO of them.
    Not sure if this is just a network problem (FB is working fine from the PC) or the norm for Bloo, but this is almost as bad as the official app. I do like Bloo's layout, however.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how to alleviate any of those problems? Would very much appreciate it.

    I agree....the official app is terrible. That is one of the only (one of very few) things I miss about my Storm. Hope they fix this soon.

    My facebook widget that came with the phone plain old stopped working today. Is that normal? Only have the phone one week.

    I have a Facebook App. Different from the Social Network App.
    This one does basically what I need, send/receive messages, view news feeds, view pictures/profiles/etc.

    The only thing that it really lacks in my opinion is the face book chat option.
    There are other apps out there for that, but take a little bit more setting up which I have not gotten into yet.

    I downloaded Bloo and thought it sucks plus I can't pin it on it but when I clicked on my Messaging icon all my email accounts were gone except Gmail. So I dumped Bloo and put them all back but my Gmail account won't show up as an account with the rest of my email accounts. I can access it with the Gmail icon but anyone know how to get the icon back in the messaging. It shows I have it but just don't show the icon.

    So, this might not be the exact answer your looking for but I don't use any facebook app at all, and that has been my best facebook experience with my droids..
    Unlike the previous poster who said he doesn't use facebook at all, I still use aspects of facebook, just not a centralized app like fb official or bloo. For me I'm mostly interested in updating my status, reading status updates of others, and working with pics. So basically I use a combination of tweetdeck (for status updates and viewing posted pics), and pixelpipe for updating my photos. For rare tasks other than these I use touch.facebook.com.
    Again, this is a specific use case, and might not be what you're looking for, but it works perfect for me.
