Native Facebook for Android App is in final stages of testing


If you’ve ever actually used it then you know the Facebook App for Android sucks. Mark Zuckerberg apparenly knows it too and was making staff at Facebook use the app to highlight the fact. Now Engadget are reporting that they have received a tip from an anonymous source within the company advising that a native Android app is in the final stages of testing. The Facebook mobile team are lead by ex-Googler Erick Tseng so they should be able to get something pretty decent together. Hopefully this means a release is not too far away.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Yeah, but does it actually work? Since ice cream sandwich the contact sync doesn’t work, Google changed the API and Facebook never updated.

Disappointed this news didn’t come with an APK leak! I doubt it will have much of a Holo influence given its Messenger app doesn’t, but it’d be nice if they took it on board.
