Facebook users are no longer confined to accessing their homepages through their desktop computer since the birth of smartphones and the Android application for the social networker never feels like a compromised experience.
Easy to use and easy to understand, the app is a very capable version of Facebook and offers the ability to post, poke and do the others tasks users normally do. A recent update added the ability to add photos to friends walls, a nice touch, and something that users can do direct from their phone gallery.
Facebook for iOS enables you to quickly access Messages, Notifications and more by tapping the bottom of your screen (iPhone only).
