Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them.

Improve Your Android Facebook Experience with F-Plus
XDA member senab decided that the experience with Facebook apps currently available for Android are less than desirable, so the dev took it upon himself to try and make it better. F-plus is a new Facebook app that will ensure that your mobile experience with your favorite Social Media website is what you would expect. This app will work online seamlessly letting you know with vibration and flashing LED when something new is up with your friends. Moreover, if you are just done typing a snappy response in someone else’s wall just to find that your internet connection is down, the app will simply try to reconnect whenever it can, so that you don’t lose your thoughts in a sea of anger towards your carrier / network administrator.
Thoughts? Questions? Comments? Leave all that below and in the dev’s thread for feedback purposes.
- Choose polling time interval
