Push Notifications for Facebook – Android

XDA member rosenbaa29 told us about the publication of Push notifications for your Android device. Using Facebook and Twitter on an automatic refresh cycle to check for new messages can KILL your Androids battery, this application is presented as a solution for this. Instead of your phone using an app checking in with FB and then downloading new info, servers Servers check your accounts every 60-90 seconds for new updates and if one is found then it pushes the message to your device.
Another option to have in mind, tell us what you think about it.

PUSH Notifications for Facebook Fix!

Yes! Finally we have Push notifications for Facebook AND Twitter After the new facebook update, you might have noticed you are forced to have your facebook sync every 5, 10, 30 etc. minutes? Yeah, drove me insane too. Well there is now a fix. This is not my software. But it WORKS! and thats all that matters right? Make sure you check the “Unknown Sources” tab in Settings -> Application BEFORE you download to allow you to install this app. Browse this link below on your andorid device, download the small .APK, and install. Simple as that. Let me know if it works for you!

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.
