    I'm new to droid and smart phones for that matter. I have a Droid X and have the facebook app installed. I've noticed a few differences when I use the app and when I visit facebook on my browser.

    Is there a resource to list these differences for comparison? Does anyone prefer the app over visiting the site or vice versa?

    Thanks.

    App suxs is the short of it.
    m.facebook.com is much better.

    Agreed, I switch between to two. Really wish the app would step it up :/

    I like the app. I notice some problems with notifications and I wish that in photo albums they had the amount of.comments and the caption below.

    I'vee noticed the same thing between the ebay app and ebay's mobile site. I sell frequently and it appears the mobile site provides more info for me personally.

    Have mobile sites stepped up recently? Where will this leave apps as they move forward?

    Sometimes I have problems with scrolling on the mobil site.
    Anyone else have this problem.
    Only facebook, no other sites do this to me.
