The Official Facebook App Reviewed Review
Facebook is, for all intents and purposes, one of the largest social media platforms te today&rsquo,s society. With overheen 1.Five billion users worldwide, it has surpassed many of its competitors, and is now an established potencial hub for families, friends, businesses and celebrities to use.
Facebook&rsquo,s natural progression wasgoed, of course, the development of an app- and te late 2010 the official app wasgoed released. Since its launch almost 6 years ago, the official app has undergone a series of upgrades and updates. Today, it stands spil a multifaceted app downloaded by hundreds of thousands of Android and Apple users. The verdadero question is, however, whether the Facebook app could everzwijn fare fairly spil well spil its web based predecessor- and below wij review
some of its main features ter an attempt to reaction this.
On both Android and Apple devices, the Facebook App seems to work well te terms of functionality. The fattest kwestie that tends to affect most users is the fact that the app has no messaging function. Ter order for users to send or check messages, they voorwaarde also download the Messenger app. This can prove a little irritating, considering the fact that supplementary apps use unnecessary memory and battery life. However, overall, the app provides all the functionality you would expect. It permits you to share, like and comment on posts. You can save linksom that rente you, spil of late you can react to posts you feel strongly about, you can also unfollow pages and turn on or off notifications for posts. There isn&rsquo,t a functionality that is obviously lacking, and this is a definite plus for Facebook. Many users have reported functionalities that do annoy them, however, such spil how movies are now placed on a type of ticker- that automatically plays an unrelated movie instantaneously after the one you are watching finishes. A major punt for users is also the fact that posts on the timeline aren&rsquo,t placed te chronological order, meaning most latest posts aren&rsquo,t always at the top of the list. This means that users can miss relevant and latest posts, and instead be compelled to read outdated listings.
Overheen the years, the Facebook app has undergone a series of redesigns. Originally, the app wasgoed designed to emerge very similar to the diferente webstek, with a toolbar at the top and a sidebar to the left of the screen. Te time, however, the app became very focused on the timeline facet of the social media platform- and wasgoed redesigned to predominantly feature posts. This vormgeving will appeal primarily to users who use the app for reading articles and keeping up to date with friends. The vormgeving is very photo strenuous, and photos or movies are likely to overshadow text on your screens. Movies will automatically play spil your scroll by them, which can prove both irritating and useful. Ter terms of fonts, and the overall aesthetic, Facebook has opted to make profile names and postbode titles bold- while comment and share linksom are paler ter comparison. This is useful for skim reading.
Te terms of usability, on a very basic level, the Facebook App ticks all the boxes. Using the app, users can lightly read, like and share posts. You can message friends using the extended messenger app, and opening linksaf will redirect your screen to your cellphone&rsquo,s internet browsers. Movies will automatically leap to total screen when clicked, and you can save linksom to read or browse at a straks date. Those interested ter using the Facebook App for professional reasons may suffer. The Facebook app is very timeline dense. The marketing side of Facebook and the usability of business pages is significantly diminished, spil the social media opzicht takes precedence. The app primarily considers a market of &lsquo,scrollers&rsquo, and disregards those who may want to use the app to promote their business on the go. While it can be done, it can&rsquo,t be done spil lightly, and this is certainly a negative for those who like to reap the unconventional benefits of Facebook.
Cross-platform use Five/Five
Zuckerberg has called the Facebook App the &lsquo,Cross-platform toneel&rsquo, and most developers are ter agreement. The app fares well across numerous platforms, but most importantly seems to work relatively well on both iOS and Android, with only a few expected limitations.
All In-App purchase available through Facebook relate to any purchases made through games or spel apps. Facebook mobile gives users the option to download games, and thesis games suggest purchases and upgrades that are self contained. The Facebook app itself presently has no purchases available.
Spil with any app, there is slagroom for improvement with Facebook. Many users report crashes, bugs and a militar lack of functionality on certain devices. However, those that successfully download and operate the app, have few complaints (if any). The app covers all the bases you would expect it to, and generally appeals to a market that uses Facebook for scrolling and reading purposes. Overall, this is a elementary yet effective way to keep up to date with friends and family while on the go.
Those looking for a ordinary, engaging and straightforward alternative to the Facebook browser will not be disappointed by this underwhelming yet nonetheless satisfying app.
