Like Your Honeycomb Tablet with Friend Me Facebook Client

What do you do when you’re a facebook addict with a Honeycomb tablet? Anyone who’s ever tried will quickly point out that the official Android phone application is hardly optimized for a tablet UI.

XDA forum member Chris Stewart, famous for his work making Honeycomb more palatable by providing us with great applications such as NewsR and TweetComb, has worked his Honeycomb magic once again with Friend Me, a tablet-optimized Facebook client with  many features, a great UI, and support for Facebook flash games. In the words of the developer:

Friend Me is a Facebook client designed and created exclusively for the Android Honeycomb platform. Friend Me offers a tablet-optimized experience for interacting with Facebook. Friend Me is a free application, without advertising.

Features of Friend Me:

— Interact with Facebook with an experience optimized for your Android tablet.
— Submit status updates to post on your Facebook wall.
— Read status updates from your friends in the News Feed.
— Read comments and likes on status messages.
— Contribute comments and likes on status messages.
— Take advantage of Facebook single sign-on if you have the official Facebook app instead. Otherwise, Friend Me will use the Facebook dialog authorization.
— View shared photos, links, statuses, checkins, and more directly in the app. Selecting external links gives you the choice of viewing the website inside of Friend Me, with an option to view in the tablet’s browser.
— Access your profile information, your wall, and photo albums. Selecting a photo album lets you easily navigate through your photos.
— See your Facebook friends, view their profile information, and access their wall.
— A Photo tab for exploring your photo albums in an exciting way.
— Friend Me offers a Games feature, which will let you play your favorite Facebook game inside of the app. Flash games work as well, thanks to the Android platform.

Continue on to the application thread to give Friend Me a try!

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
