Flow for Facebook Updated – Facebook for Android Alternative

I’m sure we can all agree that Facebook for Android (developed by Facebook) most times leaves something to be desired. Now I’ve seen this Flow for Facebook mentioned a few times in the past, just never took the time to install it, not even the free version. Call me a procastinator if you will. Well, today I decided to install it, and reason being, I came across much info on the app especially by way of an XDA thread I navigated to.  So the app was purchased, and I’m really enjoying it.

This article was intended to inform users of the application of the latest updates to Flow for Facebook, so here they are:

v3.5

  • Completely rewrote the Image Downloading function. Now works perfectly.
  • Changed Image Zoom levels
  • Migration of Favorites on Database Changes
  • Ability to Search Facebook for Friends.Just press the Search button on your phone.
  • Sentence case for Status Textbox
  • Fix the display of Post Tags and Checkin tags Speed up refreshing Friends
  • New Preference to open News Feed on Application Launch

v3.5.0.1

  • Fix for FC with News Feed Launch on certain Launchers

Installed it and gave it a run around the block, I’ll say that this is an app that anyone with regular visits to Facebook would want on their Android device. It will fill the void where the original Facebook Android app is lacking. So check it out, and let us know what you think in the comments.
