XDA Facebook App Version 3.0 Beta Released
Many owners of Windows Mobile devices have bemoaned the official Facebook application provided by the Marketplace and hoped for an alternative other than using the basic and finger-unfriendly mobile web version.
Despite being the second most-visited website in the world, Facebook applications for Windows phones have been notoriously slow and buggy, with many iterations not even allowing users to send video clips or complete messages to one another through the service.
This has led XDA members Sopis, joe_coolish and Fredz to develop a rivalling Facebook client. Since building up support for the project, the trio have worked hard at providing another option for those who would like to keep up with their friends will on the move.
Currently up to version 3.0 beta, the app focuses on being faster and user-friendlier than the one by Facebook themselves. You can install the application on your device by downloading the .cab file from the project thread.

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...
