I have a number of guesses as to why, but I don't want to say them since they're probably wrong.

Thank You Both, for the clarification.

Well, it just NOW showed up on my PC Zune client. Still not visible on the Zune's maretplace app. In either case I now have it on my Zune HD. Now I just need to join facebook.

Yeah, that's exactly what i did, i registered for a facebook account just under 60 secs, just to check out the App quality.

From what I'm seeing right now its nothing amazing, at all. It doesn't seem anything spectacular to me.

If this is what they call quality, i don't know what the Future Holds for Zune App support, they're better off developing games for this thing than Apps.

Nothing is loading. I guess they have to release an update tomorrow to fix this problem. Remember how they released a Twitter update the day after it was released?

This is really getting annoying, on one hand, we complain about MS taking so long to release an App, on the other hand all they have to say is Quality Over Quantity, but when the App is released, it doesn't seem to be the same level of quality as promised.

Idk the app looked all right to me. Maybe an update in the morning will cure all the woes.

Something's are working something's are not...

Break down:
1. App loads
2. News feeds, status updates photos do not work
3. Posting status updates does not work.
4. Seeing info works, seeing own photos work.
6. Seeing my wall doesn't work.
7. (FRIENDS) friends list doesn't load
8. (MAIL) inbox, sent, updates do not work
9. Notifications work.



Hope that helps you out Dave.

One more thing i just discovered!
Music listing for FB works, does not pop up on the zuneHD but does on the website.

Exactly. Now imagine if this app was released back in January or even earlier last year. Over at the Zune Boards, they are mentioning that the server needs to cache the info or something.

10. No ad during app loading.
11. When clicking on a friends name (from notification) you can only see their info and not wall

It looks really nice and runs pretty damn fast, now if only everything worked.

Edit: Seems posting current song works, just not normal status updates.

Thank you Microsoft for finally releasing the app, at least this shows movement in the app space. It's not completely usable yet, loading pages (other than own info page and photos) doesn't work. I also noticed that there's no pinch-to-zoom feature when viewing photos.

EDIT: Never mind, these are just screenshots when the app actually load.

Ya... What's up? Theory. Facebook might need to update their server side scripting. I don't know...

Folks over at the Zune Boards are saying that the server needs to cache the info. Idk though.
