    I got a Galaxy Nexus last month, and the battery was horrific. Facebook used a ton of that battery, so I looked for a good replacement, and Friendcaster seemed to be my best bet. Once they fix up the current bugs, I'll enjoy it very much. But, I like to cross-post my Twitter and Facebook, so I've also been using Tweetcaster. Problem is, it's mostly designed for Twitter. There's no way to add a friend into your status (or even tag them). Same with Friendcaster. Does anyone know of an app, preferably a cross-poster, that will let me tag people not only in @ posts with Twitter, but with people in Facebook? I appreciate the help!

    Unfortunately, right now there is not. I tried to find an alternative fb app, & tried friendcaster. When I discovered that there were things I could not do with friendcaster, I wrote them and was told that fb has certain restrictions that will not allow other developers to create a fb app with all features.

    I think, because the fb app is such a battery hog and they don't seem to want to fix that, they need to open up the ability for other developers to create an app with all features.

    That's a shame. It's definitely not an earth-shattering problem, but I figured in the current age of tech it would be achievable. I'm at least glad Friendcaster fixed their notification problem today.

    I agree and I don't particularly appreciate that facebook has put restrictions on the ability for developers to improve on a fb app.

    If Facebook isn't willing to actively solve their horrific battery-sucking problem (which they clearly aren't), then they shouldn't bother with the restrictions that keep other developers from helping us out!
