- Social (built-in)
- Gravity – while excellent for Twitter, just sucks for facebook
- FB Browser
- Fb Touch
- FriendChat, and
The above all work but with lots of limitations on various fronts. fMobi, on the other hand, ticks almost every box on Facebook, including:
- Sharing of status
- Profile viewing
- News Feed
There’s also audio notifications, and fMobi gives you the option of two themes – one light and the other dark. There’s also the ability to set an automatic update/refresh cycle.
One of the things you will observe first with fMobi is the fact that it has been themed after Symian Anna, whether you use the light theme or the dark alternative, both utilise Anna-style icons.
During a chat, when the person at the other end is typing, there is an animated pen under the name of your conversant to indicate when he/she is typing. This is something that I have always loved in IM apps.
fMobi delivers the most complete Facebook experience that I have experienced on the Symbian platform. It comes highly recommended.
The app is currently in 1.1.2 beta. Visit the developer’s page to download fMobi.
