Default Please Dave make us an NEW Facebook App

Everbody knows that the Facebook App is very bad, but what can WE do?
The problems are:
1.) It's not possible to zoom in photos.
2.) It's not possible to delete entries.
3.) It's not possible to chat with other online Facebook users.
4.) It's not possible to see status infos of none added friends.
5.) It's not possible to use the Facebook App effectiv, because you have to use a Msn and mobile Facebook mix
But it's possible to change this failures!
So Dave please contact the people who build the App and tell them to build one like the Ipod has one, or better...


Sorry for the "bad" english, but the message is clear...

For me, zooming in photos is the only important thing that we're missing. A new Facebook app will never, ever happen, aside from minor updates like we've been getting, as much as I hate to be that guy. It's not actually that important to me anyway, because if I use my Zune I'm probably (usually) at my house, so I'll just use a computer (im not on Facebook a lot). Photos are important for me though because you can't get them full size in the browser, and when I do use Facebook that gets annoying. But the Windows Live Messenger is pretty good for chat. I'd much rather see an improved browser with html5, or even a new device.

And we can't view pages, even though they show up in the news feed.

m.ebudy.com for in browser chat. Haven't used it in a while because it stopped working correctly. Might be fixed.

By the way, it's not MS or Dave that makes the Facebook app. That was Facebook itself, I believe.

I just want them to fix the damn notifications glitch. Ugh, it's so frustrating that I can't even check it twice either! Once I see it, if I try and check it again, it's gone!

Matchbox Mobile makes all of MS's Facebook Apps for all of their mobile platforms.

Oh and yes, I'm back. For a little while.

Last month? There was no update last month as far as I'm concerned. And there isn't one showing right now.

Either way, it wasn't fixed. At least from what I can tell..

That's correct. Matchbox built our Twitter and Facebook clients. I'm chatting with them next week, and will mention this.

Cheers, Dave.

Yea, I wish I could take sides on the Facebook stuff. (sorta employed by them*... soz) (btw- hope you all like the dislike button. :-) )

*them = Facebook the company, not Matcbox Mobile.

Off the books though, I wish Facebook would take a more active involvement in official companies developing apps for their service.

Found a new problem ( I think it is one )
If you're status information is too long, you have a confusing SETTINGS Window... (try it out)
Hope this could be fixed with a new app...

Ps: Thanks Dave, that you are helping

Hi guys - to be clear, there will be no "new" Facebook app. Are we open to making some fixes? Sure. By all means post fix requests here and I'll make sure our devs pop in to review. Don't send "add chat" or other requests like that - I'm looking for fixes here.

Cheers, Dave.

The only real problem I have with the app, is that if you have a thread with a lot of posts in it (and im in a few, kind of a way that my friends and I from highschool keep in touch these days) it tries to load the entire thread and crashes the zune. if only the newest posts were show that would probably help alot.

So chat is impossible? Or it just won't happen because it's too much work for a free app that like a hundred people use. And one fix besides the notifications and not being able to zoom and not being able to view pages and not being able to download photos; if you accept a friend request that friend doesn't show up in in the friends tab until you close the app and open it again. That's all I can think of right now.

I personally don't think chat is nessecary since we've got the Windows Live app now.

Also, Dave, I'm sure you already know what bug I want fixed.

In any case, some general optimization would be nice.
