[Q] Where is the Facebook and Twitter "Integration"?
Just got my new 7" HDX. I really like my Nexus 7 FHD, but I thought I'd give this thing a try. I'm trying to figure out exactly how Amazon defines the terms "seamless" and "integration" w.r.t. Facebook and Twitter.
When I booted up, it asked me for my FB and Twitter credentials. Fair enough. I started with Facebook, put in my username and password, and watched it fail because the "integrated" account had no idea how to handle the Login Authentication. It couldn't even prompt me for the code!
So I went and turned it off (from my N7), and tried again. It worked this time, but there is no Facebook "app" on the device by default. Same with Twitter. Thinking I had to be missing something in the new interface, and wanting to see how the May Day thing worked, I contacted support. I was told, unapologetically, that I needed to download the apps from the app store. So I did. And then I had to login
when I started the app! WTF?
I played around in some of the other included apps, thinking maybe the integration was elsewhere. In the Photos app, I was able to sync my FB photos to the device, but only after (you guessed it) logging into Facebook again through the web browser on the device! So far as I can tell, it's syncing my contacts and calendar with Google, but not with Facebook.
So what am I missing here? I don't see anything that comes even close to "seamless" or "integration".
