Atrium for an Alternate Facebook Experience

We have all experienced the frustration of using the official Facebook app for Android. Whether it be the newsfeed’s unwillingness to update, pictures taking forever to load, or the app simply refusing to load anything at all (for a more extensive list of technical difficulties, please visit the comment section of Facebook on the Play store). Thankfully, alternative Facebook client apps offer the same simple functionality, minus the frustration, and Atrium for Facebook is one of them.

Independently developed by XDA Forum Member radiantbits, Atrium for Facebook provides a simple yet intuitive interface for you to do your ‘facebook’ing on your Android device. The user interface isn’t cluttered, nor is it complicated. Rather, it simply consists of three horizontally sliding pages: your newsfeed, friends list, and chat. A slide-out menu from the left offers multiple actions such as updating your status, uploading photos/videos, and checking, among others.

Credit must also be given to radiantbits for making Atrium for Facebook available in a variety of languages including English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Korean, Russian, and Ukrainian.

We are all hot-wired to demand faster, more immediate speeds from our apps, and understandably so considering the horsepower smartphones are brandishing nowadays. So it’s great to see Atrium for Facebook developed, and right here in the XDA forums. The Facebook client is lightweight and snappy, uncomplicated and intuitive, full-featured yet free.

If you’re an Android user of Gingerbread or newer and this interests you, check out the original thread for more details.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
