Fast Facebook Brings Slimmed Down Experience

What do many users often request from the Facebook mobile app development team? A faster, less bloated experience for starters. And a way to theme it would be nice as well. Whether it is small bug fixes or big feature omissions, there are a lot of users who are frustrated and dissatisfied with the official Facebook application. Now, those users have a second option.

XDA Forum Member taomorpheus has created a Facebook application dubbed Fast Facebook, which looks to fill in the gaps where the old Facebook left off. It promises a much faster and smoother Facebook experience, without sacrificing any of the features. It even includes a few features that the standard Facebook application lacks.

Fast Facebook can be themed. Unlike other themed versions of the Facebook application, there are theme packs for Fast Facebook that allow users to change the look themselves and upload their own backgrounds from their photo gallery. Think desktop wallpaper, but for Facebook. The application also features pretty much everything you’d need in a Facebook app, including the chat function, usual notifications, posting on walls, and so on. The application’s big claims to fame, however, is how it is designed to be streamlined and run more quickly and is based on Android 4.0 design language. It is a beta, though, so expect there to be a few bugs when roving around. taomorpheus is working hard to iron them out but a beta is a beta.

More information, screen shots, download links, change logs, and feature lists are available in the application thread. Go get your Facebook on in a different way.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
