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!

An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
