Want a Fully Featured Facebook App for Android?
XDA member keridel is petitioning for a new and improved version of the Facebook app for Android. Android is one the fastest growing OS’s and with such a large user base connected to social media outlets such as Facebook we demand a robust solution to keep up with the latest social news of our friends and family. As quoted from the petition page:
I have created a group on Facebook to try and get the site to listen to our pleas.
The android OS is now number 2 in (the smartphone) market share behind Symbian and yet we have possibly the most appalling app ever.
you cant use the new Places feature, you cant chat, you cant even tag photos! (something you have been able to do since facebook started)
this to me just doesnt seem right. we deserve a decent app. I know that a lot of the devs on here could make a better app but why should they? the Fruit based phone that shall not be named has had a good app from the beggining and has the new Places added to it straight away.
so i am asking that anyone from the site who loves Facebook and Android and wants to see them paired correctly please come and join us at:
If you want to learn more about this and sign the petition, please check out the original thread and the Facebook group if you are interested in supporting this idea.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
