Friendly Plus Social Browser Comments & Reviews 2022

- Fixed with latest update!

UPDATE: The very latest update seems to have resolved the issues I reported below and reverted the app to the wonderful less-crowded and more-sane interface. I’m guessing perhaps Facebook’s latest update stymied the devs for a bit? Anyway, happy to be back up and running! Genuinely unfortunate: this has been the app I’ve recommended for *years* to friends and family looking to escape the mess of Facebook’s invasive tracking and awful UI. Unfortunately the latest update has removed everything successful about this app (the clean & usable UI, the filtering and ad blocking, the custom filters) and replaced it with a broken encapsulation of the Facebook mobile UI, which is a mess-and-a-half on its own. If I wanted that, I’d load Facebook in Safari. One hopes this is temporary or I guess I’ll need to find a replacement for Friendly.

- Once again you have screwed up a perfectly good app

I switched many moons ago and have not looked back; however, I am getting tired of the problems that occur after many updates. The most recent problem occurs when I change orientations of my iPhone either intentionally or usually unintentionally. The app loses my place and starts over at the top of the stream. This is highly annoying when I am down in a stream and want to read a document that is wider than the screen. I rotate the device and instead of showing the page I was reading it snaps back to the top. I scroll back to the page to read it. When I am finished, I turn the device back to vertical and once again the app snaps back to the top of the screen. Guess I’ll use another app until you get the latest screw up corrected. I really wish you would take more care with your updates. You have a good app, but it seems that nearly ever other update something infuriating like this happens.

- Great client for Facebook

I love the small footprint of this app. I’ve had no problems accessing any Facebook features when using the Friendly app. A hint about enlarging your newsfeed, be sure that you’ve clicked on “follow” for each of your friends that you want added to your newsfeed page. The ad blocking feature and screening posts by keyword are features that I really like. I’ve read some reviews saying that videos won’t post, trying to copy comments doesn’t work, it’s glitchy, and it’s slow. I’ve experienced none of these problems. In fact, I’ve found it much easier to locate older videos that I posted years ago, copying photos and text isn’t a problem, and Facebook Messenger functions great, without having to download an additional app. Would I purchase this app again, or recommend it to a friend? Absolutely!

- Deletes your edits before you can post- extremely frustrating

Anytime you’re editing a post you need to scroll up by swiping down to get to the top in order to press the post key on the upper right corner. But, if you scroll a little bit too far the page your on refreshes and you loose everything you wrote. The same thing happens when you type a long post and try to add photos to it; I’ve had so many thoughtfully written posted get deleted because of this bug that I’m deleting this app and going back to Facebooks app. At this point I don’t care what anyone does to me or my data, or who they sell it to; I just want to be able to post anything without loosing everything I wrote over half the time. How is it that this bug persists? Why didn’t I uninstall this app a long time ago? If you’re precise enough to scroll without causing the page to refresh before click the post button, then you’ll probably be really good at gold cause that’s what it feels like I’m playing. But the difference is if you don’t scroll a hole-in-one every time, you loose everything you’ve written!

- This app used to be great…

I used to love this app and recommended it to all my friends, but over the last few months it’s become so buggy that I think I’m going to have to find something else or go back to the Facebook app. It was a great way to still have Facebook and messenger in one app, but it’s now just loading the mobile web version of Facebook and messenger can no longer be accessed. Also because of this, the UX/UI is terrible and not user friendly whatsoever. Before that, it wouldn’t let me expand or read comments on most posts of groups I was subscribed to. So if I saw a post from a group in my feed, it’d tell me the post didn’t exist. So I’d have to go to my computer and find it in the group to read the full post, see comments, or write a response (including my own posts in groups!) I emailed them about both of these issues with screen shots but never heard back or acknowledged they know it’s a problem. It seems I can read group posts now but the web feed is terrible, and I can’t access messenger. Also, before messenger went down, I was messaging a girl about an upcoming trip, but she wasn’t on my friends list. I could not find the messenger convo anywhere on the app even though it gave me the notification I had a new message. I had to go to my computer to read it. Maybe I’ll try back in a few months to see if they worked out the bugs, but for now, it’s not really usable and hasn’t been for a while.

- Great app, but recent problems…

I’ve been using Friendly+ for years, and it appears to be the only Facebook client app (besides FBs own kinda lame app) that’s still being actively supported. But ever since maybe a month or so ago, I’ve had 2 consistent issues - 1. If I leave the app and return later, most of the time, the control bar across the bottom vanishes. If I was writing a post, there’s no way to hit a Post button. 2. Bigger problem, it will now completely randomly go to a screen saying "Refresh and try again. Hi user, your action failed probably your view/page is out of sync with the backend. Refresh the page, cross your fingers, and try again." — this appears randomly when I want to share a post from a group or friend. This has NEVER happened since I’ve been using this app, and now it happens so often, it makes me want to only share posts from the desktop browser. PLEASE fix this issue soon - this is THE best FB app for the iPad by far, but I may have to start using the official app if this keeps going. It happens on both the iPad as well as iPhone versions.

- It’s good. But needs more works

I been using Friendly+ for a bit now and if we are comparing it to the Facebook app I’d have to say that this feels a bit like the mobile site. Things just don’t load like they load on the Facebook app, I’m looking forward to the advances that this developer will do to this app later on. The one thing that I do definitely appreciate about this app is the dark mode feature that Facebook for some reason just doesn’t have at all. Strange. This app is very good tho. I’m looking forward to the advances in features and overall user interface experience that friendly will add or polish, bc I definitely think it needs a lot more polishing. The one item I’m getting a lot of crashes on is the color changer option.. every time I want to change the color of the app once logged in, it just crashes instantly without warning. Every single time.

- Friendly is the best way to experience Facebook

I love how there are more options to share things in Friendly, especially with myself, to save things I like. I appreciate how easy it is to check on my kids’ Facebook feeds to see what they and others are posting. I like how things don’t suddenly change without notice; the developers are always very good about sharing specific changes, which are always an improvement. I don’t feel like the Friendly team has an agenda or that I’m a guinea pig to experiment on. I have a lot more trust for them than the Facebook corporation and appreciate the buffer they provide between me and the annoying changes the Facebook developers make. What first attracted me to Friendly was that I could have the option of having my feed show posts from any of my friends, even seldom contacted ones, as they were posted, with none pushed to the top. I’ve been able to feel connected with more of my friends because of this feature. Thank you, Friendly team, for making my experience on Facebook less jarring and irritating and so much more enjoyable!

- Stellar! Great unsurpassed features

Contact support for issues people! I've had this and other FB apps for years. None compare to this one. This continues to improve in substantial ways. First, ad block!! Works quietly in the background, doesn't slow anything down. Clean interface, seamless, very fast, easy nav, far more features than FB. Useful ones. Makes FB useful, much less tedious and less frustrating. I just discovered a feature that sent me back here to rewrite my review - you can export/save/open articles you visit from links into other apps. Stellar!!! That saves me TONS of hassle and time. I look forward to FB now. Thank you devs for a great app, for maintaining and improving it for so long.

- Problem with notifications

Hi. I paid to remove ads and show support and I really do like this app but there are a couple of things that are kind of confusing at times. For one, I can look at notifications and I can click on every single one of them but Friendly, will still show notifications at the bottom and also when I leave the app, the badge on the icon will still show them. I wish you could fix this. I know it’s not a major thing but it is very confusing. Also, Friendly will not show the messages that I have sent right away in the texting (messenger) part. I have to refresh the text window to see the text I just sent. It was confusing to me at first because any other messenger app I’ve used will update the text window right away but not this one. So I have to resort to using Facebook Messenger, which is an unnecessary extra that I should not have to do. It’s possible that you have fixed these problems, but because the new updates have such bad reviews, I’m afraid to update. :( Just want to add a thank you for all the good things about this app! I know trying to keep your app working is a challenge with Facebook constantly making changes!

- Looks good, but broken

Might have been 5 stars if you could actually hear your notifications without having to physically look at your phone. And even when you do get a messenger notification, after tapping on it, it shows nothing but the last message. You still have to use the actual messenger app to read new messages. Also, even after setting your feed to “most recent”, you get posts that were made hours and hours ago showing at the top. Sorry guys, great concept but I should have never paid for this. Until I can use this app exclusively to check facebook and messenger, and actually see and hear my NEW notifications, I’m uninstalling. Enjoy my 2 bucks. 👍

- Makes Facebook tolerable

After all the shenanigans they've pulled over the years, I refuse to use the official app. Friendly lets me check in on a few groups and people that are only on FB. I pop in for a few minutes a couple times a day, and don't tend to scroll back very far, so I haven't encountered any issues in that area. The one issue that crops up more than I'd like is the inability to view photos at full size, both in FB and Instagram posts that are shown in FB. This is particularly noticeable on the iPad, where photos are noticeably low resolution and pixelated. This has happened before and been fixed, so I'm hoping Friendly will be updated again soon to resolve the issue.

- The better way to FB

I originally downloaded Friendly years ago and promptly forgot about. About a year ago i grew sick of waiting for the FB app to adopt split screen and work with the 12.9 iPad pro. I tried Friendly and was amazed by how customizable, powerful, and lightweight it is. I can use it with my iPad, but I love how well it works when traveling in parts of the world with slow internet connections. And the continued development of the app is amazing. The dark mode, the ability to send articles to Instapaper or Pocket, the ad blocking. It all is incredible. One great addition would be to have a “reading” mode similar to Safari when you open a link to an article.

- Facebook story saving not working properly!!

Facebook story saving is not working please fix!! My issue is when someone post a story only one & it’s a video it’s not downloadable even when the video goes full screen there is a download button but it doesn’t work at all. unless they have a second story. You check the second story usually you need it to be a picture for the download button to comeback & work. Can this be fixed to always have the download button there & function properly? I had a similar issue with instagram stories not too long ago & that did get fixed! Thx!

- Good, not great

Pros: • Can view Facebook news feed in most “recent mode” with ads and other annoying things like “do you know these people?” removed and most of the other parts of it work great. • Instagram works a lot better too. • Price of app is worth viewing Facebook without ads (it’d be more worth it if Twitter and Instagram got the same treatment). Cons: • Notifications are spotty and inconsistent. • Twitter still shows sponsored tweets and you can’t swipe from the left edge to go backwards. This wouldn’t be annoying if the “back” arrow didn’t appear at the top sometimes while on the bottom other times. • The Friendly menu where you can choose between Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - why do I have to scroll this? It only allows for those three apps to be on this page, so why not just display the three buttons on screen at the same time? Also, why can’t I add others (Reddit, LinkedIn, Pinterest) on that menu? • NEW: It’d be nice if I could switch between the sites without losing my place. If I wanted to post a Tweet to Facebook. I’m starting to hop between this and the other app, which is making me wonder why I’m using this one...

- Problems from the start

Just purchased the app and I’m having issues already. First: The app is not showing any posts at all. It just says “Welcome to Facebook”. No matter how many times I refresh or restart the app, it says the same thing. Second: I posted something as a test to make sure it was working correctly and was unable to delete it by touching the post options (the three horizontal dots). I even tried to reinstall the app twice. This app seems like a wonderful thing if it would work properly. Edit: There seems to be an issue with the Most Recent sorting. Most Recent shows no posts at all, yet Top Stories makes the app function normally so far. Changed my rating, but the Most Recent option needs to be addressed.

- Better than buggy FB app! Neater than YT app!

I love this app! It’s way better than FB official app by all margins. I don’t have notifications anymore that lead me back to the starting page, horrible search results, or unregistered clicks. For both FB and YT I really love how they made the user interface very old fashioned and the result is better usage of your screen space. The screen isn’t filled with lots of empty colored spaces. Because of the better use of screen space, it can be filled with more advanced menus and options and more text. I unfortunately can’t speak for users of smaller screen iPhones.

- Sincerely Impressed & Grateful

If you care about your right to privacy in the slightest, PAY $1.99 and DOWNLOAD NOW. I cannot express how thankful I am for this application. It graciously affords me the opportunity to continue using all of the Social Media applications that STRUGGLING with nearly leaving because of the amount of data and information being tracked and sold. These developers basically said “Yeah, NOPE. That’s not right.” And with this app I’ve been able to stay connected to all of my accounts without a worry in mind. Seriously, the cost of $1.99 is NOTHING for the exchange of peace of mind. To the Dev’s, THANK YOU FOREVER!

- I LOVE Friendly+

After having my accounts hacked, social engineered, and generally spammed, and reporting offensive posts daily to the platforms, I decided I had enough. I downloaded Friendly+ and didn’t look back. This is an amazing app, where you can block words from your news feed, block the trackers that make it so easy to social engineer people, and see what you really want to see in your feed, the people and pages you care about. The ad blocker is brilliant. Using the paid form of friendly is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

- Great space saver!

This app is great at keeping social media in one place. Easy to navigate, saves data... In really glad I got it! I just dislike that I sometimes can’t view all the pictures in Facebook albums and I can’t watch Lives, so I have to briefly download FB for that. I’ve never had issues with Instagram or Twitter, though, and the app crashes less frequently than any of the social media apps even though it stores your navigation history for quite some time, like a browser. Fix the bugs, Friendly, and it’d be 5 stars from me. :)

- Great At Ads, Needs Some Things

I’ve had this a couple years now, and install it now and then for a bit, but always end up back with the Facebook app. It is good at blocking ads, and I like that I can download videos. It’s hard to keep using, however, because it doesn’t refresh to show new things on my feed. I try to refresh in the app and restart the app, but it only shows me a fraction of the posts I can see in the Facebook webpage or iOS app. I’ve messed with the settings for how the feed is sorted, like most recent or most popular, but that doesn’t fix it. It seems to recycle the same handful of posts, then tells me there are no new posts.....I’ve been on Facebook for 14 years with lots of friends and subscriptions, and as mentioned, the other places I use Facebook don’t say that. It also doesn’t notify me like it should. I’ve gone through all the settings, made sure the notifications were on, background refresh, etc., but it still doesn’t. I like it, but I wish it showed me all posts and notified me.

- Friendly Plus is ‘Friendly’

Been increasingly irritated with regular FB app changing my preferences every update, limited control of security profile, difficulty switching profiles. Searched App Store for alternatives when I realized that I had Friendly Plus already. Very happy with the number of personalization options included along with the ability to go to Desktop version to access all controls of my profiles. Really happy with ability to switch between profiles. Have been using this app almost exclusively for Facebook.

- Unbelievably better than the official FB app

This app isn't perfect, but at least it is good and always getting better. The official FB app is getting worse fast -- Messenger became essentially worthless when they decided to try to shoehorn in Snapchat imitation, and the core FB app has many problems as well. Friendly is a great replacement. It works with instagram too (although can't post photos). Really glad it exists. It basically makes FB usable on mobile. Without it I would just not use FB, at least outside desktop browsing.

- Video problems

When I click links in my feed, something is altered from the original link and I am often unable to view videos. Sometimes I am unable to post while using the Friendly app, too. If I hit the same links by going through my email notifications they will work, so I know it’s the Friendly app and not the link. The same with posting photos into comments. I do appreciate that I don’t need a separate app to use Messenger, and the reduction of ads is something I can take for granted until I go through other means and am reminded that Friendly does a good job of reducing annoying ads.

- Meh

It is a great little app...when it wants to work. It is still very buggy but now at least does the basic job. Once deleted from too many problems, but Facebook on Safari was giving me issues, so I came back hoping they’d fixed the bugs. Yes and no, it seems. Fix these bugs and it gets the 5 stars I would like to give. (Update as of March 16, 2019) ———————————————————— It’s really kind of sad. I used to love this app. I switched cause I hated being forced to use Facebook Messenger, which was moving away from being a simple messaging app. I liked Friendly’s customizable features and being able to hide/highlight posts by keyword was amazing. But now it hardly deserves one star. The only thing I can see now is my newsfeed, notifications and Messages are broken. They only load a blank white screen. Good luck trying to reach the developers, I tried reaching out several ways and they never responded. After being spoiled by what once was a wonderful app, I’m even considering doing away with Facebook itself. ~Written as of September 2018~

- Best Facebook App Hands-down

Update... No longer five stars due to teeny tiny picture window. Images are now minuscule with huge black border. Time changes things.... I purchased this several years ago and was quite disappointed at that time. But, several updates later this is the way to go. As Friendly+ continued to improve, the official Facebook app has continued to get worse. The only reason I even went back and tried this app again is my recently disabled wife struggled with using Facebook. Their app made things too easy for her to accidentally get off track and go where she didn't want to go. With Friendly+ the entire interface is quite straightforward, clean and much more difficult to click something wrong and end-up who-knows-where. This is one of the few times I feel the third party app beats the original by a wide margin.

- I used to live this app but it no longer works

I loved this app (paid version) because it let me sort Facebook posts by most recent instead of letting an algorithm direct my attention. And I love the ability to block ads. But lately it’s become increasingly buggy. Sorting by most recent no longer shows every post. And, as of today, I can no longer see groups (which I prefer to check manually instead of following). I hope they update it. I will probably keep it since I’ve already paid, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone searching for a functioning way to manage social media accounts.

- Hotfix needed for app closing upon switching to another app.

After years of use, this is the only problem that is kicking me back to the hated FB app: So many times in the last few weeks have I had to curse in the middle of making a FB post when I realize I need to switch to another app to check something or pull up a URL, and Friendly+ will lose my post. I can’t even reliably use a clipboard to Notes to preserve my text: the buffer seems to get cleared when Friendly+ drops its session and starts again. Please fix this one early!

- Best way to use Facebook

This app makes Facebook more usable and clears away some confusion. It changes the layout of each page somewhat without losing the inherent power of Facebook. It may also block advertising and other items at your control, which allows you to focus on the main subject of the page without distraction. You can always use Facebook without Friendly, if you wish, as it doesn’t modify Facebook’s native mode. But why would you?

- Randomly kicked out during post

The app is okay, would be great to be able to sort the main page feed by newest, alphabetical friend,,,,,. But now the big pain is when I am writing a post, the app will clear the pane and then revert back to the previous page. I lose everything I had typed/entered and have to try again. Doing really short posts works most of the time, but the longer the writing post page is open, seems the more likely it will bug out. I hate looking for alternative apps but may be forced too.

- Designed for users, not to confiscate data

Fast, friendly, everything FaceBook Inc. isn’t and doesn’t care to be. For all the updates to FaceBook’s app you would think it would mow your lawn and cook dinner for doesn’t it constantly looks for ways to confiscate data and track your every move, eats up more data and storage space for nothing but data gathering and maybe a clown face. Get Zuck’s nose out of your colon, get this app.

- Like but needs revisions

I like this except for crashing sometimes, maybe twice a week. Also, when friends post more than one photo, it would be nice if photos came up one at a time and swipe through them so you can enlarge if need be on the phone. The way they come up now are all on one page and all you can do is scroll down. I would also like to go into sittings and change custom settings and I would like to do that on posts too. I don’t like the requests, notifications and searches at the bottom. My timeline should be up top for easy access.

- Buggy

I love that I can check my various social media accounts but for some reason I can’t post to anything but Facebook and Instagram. I’ve never been able to post to my Facebook business page, lately I cannot even share to it anymore. I cannot upload more than one photo in a single Instagram post. Also some of the social media don’t work well at all (ie Reddit). This is a fantastic idea for an app that eliminates the need for multiple space hogging social media apps but perhaps sacrifice less popular social media platforms to increase functionality of the most commonly used...

- Amazing

I was so sick of the Facebook and messenger apps. I wanted something that didn’t feel so in your face all the time. This app is perfect because it allows me to step away from the social media world as it holds everything in one app and I don’t feel so anxious about messages all the time as I have all notifications shut off ! So I can go and check at my leisure without the added pressure😎 just the app I was looking for!! So incredibly happy with everything !

- Does not work

Says it will be able to save my media - lives, videos, posts, pictures, etc - it does that, but the quality is horrible. HORRIBLE. On my regular Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - I see it crystal clear, no blurriness. Go on this app, and it’s blurry and pixelated. I’ve tried both on and off wifi. I’ve tried with small lives and large ones, same with different videos and even photos just to test - the quality is horrible. This is not worth your money. I wanted a way to save what I was working on as a backup, this is not it. It does not do what it says. If you want horrible quality, get it. But not worth paying for.

- Bug in latest update

Unable to upload videos in Pinterest. Also has bug in Facebook video sharing. If you visit your Facebook page, enter videos section and click any video, it auto plays the video but no longer has the “share” option. New update now makes it impossible to visit a page’s videos section and share any video, it only has a download cloud icon but no share abilities. The Facebook app allows sharing videos when you view a video but not this app. Finally, on Facebook pages, you cannot invite friends to like your page, it simply searches for friends to invite but never loads them to invite them.

- Good Alternative to the Official App

This is a very good alternative to the official Facebook app. Seems to be much lighter, and less of a battery hog. The only issue I have with it is notifications. I don't know if it's a limitation in there app, but receiving notifications seems to be very sporadic. I'll see several notifications in the official app, but won't get them in this app until I open it and do a manual refresh. Other than that I really enjoy it! Especially there dark theme.

- Not worth the upgrade yet. But has potential

I can not click on I friend or follow to change settings for other people. The options never pop up. Also have been trying to upload a video four times now and it never posts even though I stay on the app like it says. I’ve messaged the page two or three times about issues and haven’t heard back yet. With that said, it is an ok app and could be even better with some minor changes and improvements. I look forward to future updates.

- Friendly with Ad Blocker

I love the Friendly app with ad blocker. It gives me FB with more control than the FB app. It lets me continue to message within the app. (No separate messenger). It allows me to change my feed from top stories to recent again. I like how easily you can change the colors. I like that I can set it up for multiple accounts for family members. I totally recommend it over the FB app

- Switched to Friendly and saved 6.5GB

You read that right. Saved 6.5GB by switching to Friendly. I went through my local storage and saw Facebook app taking up 6.5 GB! There is no way it should be taking up that much space for social media. For $2 for this app, it’s great. I used to use the free version a while back and it seems Friendly has improved the app a lot since I last used it.

- Excellent product — missing a few items

This is an awesome product. The features that are advertised work well. However, there are two features in Facebook that I am missing: (1) The ability to edit a posting in Facebook after it has been posted, so that I can tune up my spelling and grammar; and (2) the ability to post 3D pictures like Facebook does.

- Awesome Facebook alternative

Edit: Taking off a couple stars because I’m now getting ads and prompts to install fb messenger and other features that Facebook seems to be trying to push. One of the main reasons I got this app was to avoid facebook’s nagging. This app has been my go-to for Facebook for a long time. I can do everything I would normally do with Facebook (including messaging) without having to worry about being tracked, losing battery and I don't have to install another app just for messages.

- Best app for Facebook, but could be better

This app has some bugs that could use improvement. For example when you leave the app for more than a minute and go back it will refresh back to the top. It’s also difficult to properly add photos etc. sometimes I need to use the computer for many things. Great for just scrolling, commenting, etc with little to no ads.

- Love it mostly—but still having issues!

I’ve used Friendly for several years now and really like it overall. My biggest complaint, however, is an issue that started showing up a couple of months ago. It will not show the Most Recent feed, no matter what I do. There is a permanent “something went wrong” flag and no amount of refreshing, etc. will help. It’s almost gotten me to the point where I’m thinking of getting rid of the app because of the frustration.

- Latest updates fixes previous issues

I use this app on my phone in preference to a web browser on my laptop. Previous issues with bottom button bar not appearing seem to have been resolved, which means the app is back to full functionality again!

- Search Bug

I’ve used Friendly for several years as a FB alt app and have been very satisfied with it. Recently, however, the option to “Search” your own Friends List (or anyone else’s) has not been working. In order to go directly to a Friend’s FB Page, you must scroll through your entire Friend list. Very frustrating and time consuming!!

- Great app !

Compared to the "facebook" app. This one is so much better. Blocks all ads, if you want. Which I love. Also lets you set your notification order. ❤️❤️❤️ I'm still loving this app ! My favorite feature right now is that you can block all posts you don't want to see , for instance war , you'll never see another one.

- So Many Glaring Flaws

I wanna like this app for so many reasons, but it’s just a joke at this point. Facebook: 1. Videos don’t load. Like, ever. 2. Doesn’t respect my muted messenger conversations and instead shows notifications, even for old messages. 3. The messenger functionality is outdated looking and completely unreliable. 4. Having to view a whole post on its own separate page just to see a few of the most recent comments? Twitter: 1. Again, videos don’t load at all. 2. Writing a tweet is infuriating. Keeps duplicating and merging my words and I keep having to rewrite the same thing repeatedly. I haven’t even really bothered with Instagram. Pros: 1. I can make everything pink. 2. Hides ads alright. It’s just too clunky, too outdated, and too slow to really be useful. I thought it would save me time and space on my iPad but it just aggravates me too much.

- Great app!

Love this app as a FB alternative. Have been using it for over a year, no problems. Latest update provides the option to select from a wide choice of external browser app options in which to open links. Friendly + Brave = a mobile Facebook experience that floors the Facebook app.

- The joys of F'book without the hassles!

I use Friendly on all platforms and really appreciate ever having to load "messenger" or F'book because Friendly provides both in 1 low memory use, fast & easy to use program. I also recommend it to all my clients- tech and non-tech. Try it and decide for yourself!

- I am frustrated after iOS 13 update

Update- issues appear to have been fixed with Oct 6 update! Thanks so much for the attention. I’ve been using this App for a long time as my Facebook replacement. Since the iOS 13 update on iPad 6 I'm frustrated. The timeline used to remember it's place when exiting the app for minutes and now after switching the one other app and back it fully frereshee the timeline. On my Google Pixel phone, where I purchased the app also, it remembers my place in the timeline up to 30min later and opens right back where I left off nearly every time. I'd LOVE this to be fixed on iOS 13 please.

- Still a struggle.

Less ads is great, but it still sometimes throws me to the top of my feed (like the fb app) even if there is no new content. It has difficulty playing videos and live stream. Videos that were live do not scrub—there is no way to go back ten seconds if I miss a word or forward if I want to skip the boring bits. It also has confusing glitches when saving photos; still will not scroll through photos properly and why is there a friend’s name randomly at the top when the photos are not theirs? Why do I sometimes end up at the top of my feed when I leave an article? (Some of these things are what I hated about the FB app.) I got fed up with wrestling with this app and deleted it. I was already stressed, but this app exacerbated that. For me, it is not a ‘friendly’ app if I still struggle with it. The developers need to observe some of the user flows, and see where the app is not flowing. I may come back to it after the next update, it is still better than the fb app. But for now I’ll just access fb on my mac and perhaps use it less, which is probably a good thing.

- I absolutely love this app!

It does so many things that the standard Facebook app doesn’t do, including NOT forcing me to use the Messenger app. I can manage my messages from Friendly+ without leaving the app. I can choose to view pages in mobile format, or as a desktop view. There are lots of little things that just make Facebook easier and more enjoyable to use with Friendly+. I can easily save images (with the official Facebook app, I can’t just press and hold to save cover photos, and have to screenshot and crop, instead, whereas Friendly+ just lets me save normally), and I can save videos — as well as watch videos without ads. I also love that I can choose exactly what colours I want to use. So many irritating aspects of the official Facebook app are gone in Friendly+. This app is well worth it!

- Very happy with friendly for Facebook!

Got sick of facebook's issues a few of years ago when I couldn't change timeline viewing from top stories to most recent. Asked the brains trust and friendly was one of the apps suggested. Downloaded the free version to trial, changed over to the paid version in under a week, have never looked back! Now I have control of my timeline, don't get hassled to download resource hogging FB messenger and don't have to deal with the issues my friends that use the FB app have to deal with, it's very satisfying! There are the occasional glitches in the app, usually when FB changes something and the developers haven't caught up but it usually gets fixed quotes quickly. Overall a great user experience. Have converted a lot of people to Friendly for Facebook+ too.

- Nice alternative to the Adfest FB app.

It’s a cool alternative to the official app. Night mode could use a little more time. Some text can’t be read in certain instances. It works but on my jailbroken device darkfacebook tweak has been perfected I can see the slight differences. As others have mentioned notifications don’t seem to work unless the app is manually opened. Not sure if it’s a limitation of the coding or not only the creator knows. I’m sure they are aware of this if the updates haven’t fixed it then so be it. One thing I just got myself an Apple Watch series 4. It would be great if support was added in the next update?. Unless Apple has put its foot down and won’t allow it?.

- Awesome app, must have for FB

This app is awesome... I really love it.. just notification does not work AGAIN for me, maybe that to tweak little.. I hope you will tune everything in near future.. also picture zoom does not work... but app is really great... iOS 10.2 iPhone 6s

- “FRIENDLY” is really user-FRIENDly

I like Friendly because it IS so easy to use & I like the user-interface. I also like the fact that I can download video’s (which I can not ‘always’ do on Facebook). Having said that - since a recent update (2022) - the older quick “Privacy Check” has with become really convoluted & complex to find or its in another place .. either way a QUICK PRIVACY CHECK should be ‘just that’!! QUICK!! Where is it now please?

- Very happy

This app is awesome. True, you don’t get all the features of the FB app, but the privacy it grants you more than makes up for it. Frequent improvements and bug fixes are also great, as is not having to subscribe to any regular payments. Really recommend the pro version.

- Wow!

Have had nothing but problems with FB and FB Messenger since they did the upgrade. My iPad and phone kept locking up and the only way out was to reset both. Painful! This is totally the answer. PLEASE do not complicate this app. Keep it simple and great. Love it to bits ❤️❤️❤️

- does what it says but ...*just*

has a lot of bugs and missing functionality: - crashes a lot - you can’t view more than 1 image in a FB post containing multiple images - can’t post a picture in a FB comment (button doesn’t work) - the inbuilt IG repost function doesn’t work - can’t edit your own IG posts - no access to IG direct messages - can’t crop or zoom images when creating IG post i keep using it because i want to reduce my social media time and the frustration of this poor app makes me give up and go read a book instead - so it works for me. but if you’re looking for a working alternative to the official apps, you might want to look elsewhere...

- Annoying me now

I can’t take photos with the camera within this app it’s just a black screen. I’ve been unable to open links. Overall the app is pretty slow right now

- Getting buggy

Attaching photos no longer works and pasting them results in a text URL. Pop-up asking if you want to post whatever’s on the clipboard is annoying and superfluous.

- Friendly+

Excellent App, save memory on iPhone, one question, when will Friendly+ goingto work with FB messenger??? This would be awesome.

- Better than official app

It’s very handy and multiple accounts can be used and it’s always give notification at time

- Great when it works

I am unable to load a News Feed at all - I just get the following error message: The page you requested cannot be displayed at the moment. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may be broken or expired, or you may not have permission to view this page.

- App won't load

It used to work great but now it just displays a grey screen. Occasionally it will get to a point, sometimes, if I leave it to load for a few minutes, where my account icons appear, but clicking on them does not do anything. It is a shame because this a brilliant idea for an app. I love the way you need a fingerprint or passcode to access the accounts.

- Ok But...

Hi developers, I tried to send you feedback through the app support link and it went to FB. ??? Anyway, everything was going smoothly and I deleted FB and messenger off my phone to use the app exclusively. However, a big problem. Somehow FB can now see my contact list that was previously blocked. Now FB is sending messages to me about flagging potential contacts from my contacts who are not on FB. This is appalling. Please advise immediately on how to block FB accessing my contacts via your app. Thanks. Joe

- Friendly Plus

Great app that shows me friends’ posts in correct order! It doesn’t force me to the Messenger. And it really DOES save the battery!!! 👍🏻👏🏻 The best app for Facebook 🏆🥇

- Great alternative

A great alternative to the official app, the latest update is a great improvement for the interface, dark mode works really well

- Don’t waste your money.

Can’t block ads anymore, which is the main reason I bought this app, and why I always recommended it to people. App no longer connects to Instagram (I have disconnected and reconnected the account, but that didn’t help). Very disappointed. I’ve gone back to the dedicated Facey and Insta apps. 😞

- Was good

Since last update visiting sites like Facebook is now pretty dreadful. If it was possible to downgrade, and if I knew how to do it, I would! Hopefully this app gets fixed, the sooner the better because this use to be a really great app!

- Wish I could search in groups

Now Facebook has removed the groups ap this is all that’s missing from friendly,s functionality

- This app has changed

Have been using this app for ages, now suddenly it is just a desktop Facebook page with a pretty colour at the top and bottom. I have checked settings to see if I need to do something to change it, but it stays the same.

- Fixed

At last works properly on iPad

- Excellent and getting better

Works great as a Facebook alternative - not locked into messenger

- Genuine reasons I love this app

Best substitute for the power draining, data collecting original apps of the major socmed apps. and constantly updating for the consumers benefit..

- Crashes

Updated to the latest version and now its crashing every time it opens. Re-installed and same issue so obviously a buggy release.

- Are you alive?

Really hope so because this is a damned good app when it works. Give it an update to help it run on iOS15 wii yer? You’re only defence against F.Uckerberg and his cronies.

- Easy

Good to have everything in one place 🙂

- Good software

Very helpful for multi fb account

- Good alternative to native apps

Sick of Advertising, sick of chronology being decided by algorithms... chose friendly.

- Problem with fb

When using fb no images show just large grey panels where the pics should be. Fb is now unusable. Works fine on Twitter. Please fix.

- Stop deleting my post as I write it. I’ll go back to Facebook if necessary.


- Notifications broken

Great app overall but if you can’t get your notifications even by putting faster notifications on then what’s the point in the app?

- Really good!

This is a great alternative to the original fb app...loads pics on news feed so much faster, only occasional lagging. Would give 5 stars, but I have 2 problems with the app that would be greatly appreciated in an update really soon.... 1) I have trouble tagging some friends in status updates, that is frustrating, and 2) I don't get any notifications, not badge icon ones or banners...nothing. So for those two reasons, I've had to keep original fb app to do tagging and get notifications. Oh, the other thing that could be improved is when uploading a photo, you can't preview the pic or scroll between pics to choose the right one, which means you also cant tag friends in them at upload, and can only upload one at a time, which is frustrating. If these few things are fixed, I'll be recommending to all my friends! I'm always on the hunt for great apps of all kinds....I am the "app queen" lol. Otherwise, a great alternative to the fb generic app! 👍

- Would be higher but can’t access Facebook marketplace

As above

- Need support more keyboard for other language.

App feature is good, however would rate would be higher if it’s support all keyboards.

- why?

why move the controls we use the most to the bottom of the app? Sorry, not a good idea. My view.

- Facebook made easy

Great app, pleasure to use!

- Keep dropping stars until you update for iPhone X

You’ve had plenty of time, you need to update for iPhone X.

- Still not working

Writing is still not possible❗️

- Wont open

Since the most recent update the app won’t even open. Don’t update!!!

- Great App😎

Works well

- The best

Love Friendly

- Bad app.

What’s happened to this app. It won’t load timelines on mine or my friends and I can’t edit or delete. I am using the iPone XS.

- not sure the update is a good one :-(

buggy as hell so far, sorry. crashing all the time. iphone 12

- Buggy

Crashes every time I open an article like VICE, IFLS, etc I want my money back

- This app is broke

It’s broke is useless

- Sheer Brilliance!

It's not uncommon to find a likeable Facebook app these days, but friendly+ is surely a top contender. It boasts many if not all of the features you've come to expect and love from this type of app and then bounds ahead with the added ability to access multiple Facebook accounts from this single app with easy! Great for those who have a personal and professional profile and an invaluable tool for parents to unobtrusively monitor their children's activity! Whatever your reason for accessing and having more than one Facebook profile Friendly+ is a must!

- Really good interface.

This is an excellent app. Once your in, it is just simply mind blowing. It is totally worth the 1$ price tag. You'll be so absorbed by it that you'll forget you were saving that dollar for the train or buss ride home. - good features... A much better set up then the authentic face book app. Everything is at your fingertips. Much smoother controls. Everything works in true apple style. Typing is easier. iPad native. It doesn't have the annoying habit of asking your location. - poor features... It isn't a face book authentic app. That means it accesses face book at a 3rd party rate. Once actually in the app, it's fine though. Though, I can't see how the makers can improve this. Sometimes the news feed slips and then slides much too fast. Chat can be a bit irritating, but it's easy to deal with. Otherwise, a top of the line app. I recommend to all, without a doubt. - Robin, satisfied customer.

- A good substitute to the FB app

I use Friendly exclusively to avoid using the FB app. It works very well except that, from time to time, some features stop working. I suspect it’s due to Facebook changing its coding so third-party applications have a harder time accessing it. For example, right now, I cannot post on my pages.

- Love this app

I’ve been using this app for a good while now and it’s great! I highly recommend getting the plus version. The capabilities this has over other platforms is superior. Great job!

- Bar where messages, search, etc, missing sometimes

New version is Not working. When I open it, sometimes messages, search etc, bar on the lower part doesn’t appear. It happens randomly


So good. So secure. Smooth and fast. Have used and recommended Friendly for years. Beats the FB App in every way. Uses far less battery power, too. Great on iPhone, iPad and Mac.

- All is well!


- Downloading issue

I don’t see download icon.How can I download videos.

- Fix it already

Great app but needs a lot of fixes. By far most annoying bug is in navigation, when user goes deep into comment or image and when clicked back it throughs the user to the title/newsfeed. This is not okay. Please fix.

- Amazing

Wow this app works great I’m very pleased

- Frustrating

My app is latest version & it won’t let me post or comment in groups I’m a member of. It says to update app or use Facebook on computer. The app is up to date.

- Please fix menu and messenger

Still hasn’t fix the app

- Last update broke it

Worked well for a long time, but then it started defaulting to the regular FB feed sometimes, with ads and all the stuff I used to be able to control back to the way FB wants it. After the last app update, that reversion seems permanent. No response to contacting the developer.

- New Version Issues

The new version just gives me a white screen when I try to access Facebook.

- iOS 14.1

Friendly has issues with this update. Crashed my iPad Pro multiple times.

- Worth installing but...

This version has a lot of ads. I mean a lot.

- Too many clicks to access common features

Can’t easily access groups or pages. Can’t edit the tool bar at the bottom. The app does get rid of ads on Facebook but the user interface is poor and scrolling and moving between sections buggy and slow with too many clicks.

- Great App. Thank you

Overall great app. I've used this app for years. I've had a pretty good experience. => new bugs the jar 2 updates 1 => please update the browser as I'm getting a notice in desktop mode that they won't be supporting that browser soon 2 => run in background has been quite buggy the last 2 updates. Will close my session is I go to another app. The last update did fix it a bit but I still get closed off immediately at times. I will rate 5 when bugs are fixed Suggestions Wishes 3 => need multitask feature, example; one section on a post and do a search, or more then one post. 4 => keep in background for as long as possible 5 => please add a watch app. Yes I'm aware that the app would need to be a huge overhaul and so this likely won't happen but I can only ask.

- Long time user

Love this app. It’s great.

- Can not download

What a fake app, I have bought it from the App Store and the download option is not working, and there is no way to contact the technical department to have some service.

- Useless app resends all friend requests

Useless App because you must resend all FB friend requests, alarming friends. Waste of time and three bucks. Deleted.

- Satisfaite d’excellentes


- Why are people still using FB app -- use this

Okay, yes I still have Instagram app for Instagram, but deleting FB and FB Messenger apps is so rewarding. Friendly is the best way to get back at Zuckerberg.

- I got confused..

I first got the blue coloured one to start.. the free app and then se the black one.. that u buy and I bought it.. but it is no different than the free one.. if anyone knows the diffference I’d love to know!! I feel like I got totally ripped off! Thanks.

- No adverts, updated regularly

Been using the paid version for a couple of years. Don't see any reason to change or go back to Facebook.

- Bug report: "Read more" link

Great app! I enjoy it very much. I've noticed the "read more" link is hard to activate to expand truncated text. I was hoping this update would have this fixed. Is this a known bug?

- Good but need improvements

The reason why I cannot put a five stars rating for me is because it does not have the original Facebook sharing features.

- Works like a charm!

Friendly works amazingly! So much better, faster & efficient in every way compared to that “other” Facebook app. In a good way, updates frequently shows that the developers are fully supporting this app. Thank you!

- Compared to FB App

Not all Facebook posts are being published on the friendly app.

- Great alternative to facebook app bloat

Great alternative to facebook app bloat...I love it !

- Doesn’t show all recent posts.

Waste of money

- If it was faster if give it 5.

If it was faster if give it 5.

- Best

I love this app.

- No more Ad blocker

I paid for this app because it block all the adds on Facebook. And now I’m starting to see adds!!! I feel like I paid for nothing... what’s going on whit the app???

- Love friendly

This is a great app 😎👍👍

- Friendly

The best of Facebook without the ads! Thanks!

- Friendly is +++++!

Great app, way better than fb by itself! Kills ads beautifully! Way better Communications!

- I have control over my feed

I love that I get to filter out things I don’t want to see. I love that I get no ads. Best way to view Facebook ever.

- No regrets in buying this App!

Amazing! Less data usage, not hard for your iphone, and minimalistic approach, for u dont need to install each social media app: twitter, instagram, facebook, and messenger. Definitely an App to rule them all! 👊👊👊

- App glitch October 2018

Please make an update to fix the app glitches, can’t react to posts and when clicking on posts it redirects to home page, very annoying.

- friendly

aweslome. my inversion yerars ago is paying good dividendos. Keep up the excelente job and dedication..

- Love it!

Anything that keeps FB from drowning me with ads is ok in my book!

- Great app no spam

I’m happy for this purchase option to use Facebook I get no people you may know nonsense and no adds.

- Great app, but lack of gesture control

Great app. No right sweep to go back to the previous page. No gesture control when viewing through multiple photos on Instagram.

- Oh, là là !

This app: can't live without it.

- Notifications...

Notifications and “people you may know” are annoying me all the time, I do not like any insulting, mocking, intolerance, interrupting, etc.

- Payed twice

Great app but deleted when cleaning up phone. After to reinstall it charged me again. Anyway to circumvent this pls

- Great one for FaceCrap

I highly recommend this app... You don't need messenger at all and more control. There's still a couple things it doesn't do that great, so I use the FaceCrap app for that stuff... Still recommend highly.

- Much better than the original app

All social media at once without the pubs...

- Still needs consistent notifications

The app basically works, it shows Facebook and Twitter but with some new controls. I got it to read Messenger messages on my phone though, and while that works, it usually only sends me notifications of messages when I’ve recently opened the app.

- I hate this with iOS 10

I loved this app with iOS 9 on an iPad 2 despite crashing issues. I was finally able to upgrade my hardware, running the latest iOS and I’m hating the app. What happened to It???? It’s no different that the official app.... no, I take that back. It’s now worse than the official app.

- Love it!

Works well. Only have to have one app running to check Facebook, Twitter, etc...
