Features of Friend Me:

-- Interact with Facebook with an experience optimized for your Android tablet.
-- Submit status updates to post on your Facebook wall.
-- Read status updates from your friends in the News Feed.

Thumbs up Nice app.
First off, great app, been using it for a while on my Transformer and its by far superior to the stock Facebook app. Its gotten even better since the upgrade a few days back.

The only issues I've found so far are:
  • When I try to lauch the app by touching a notification it force closes. I can view the notifications by launching the app and navigating to the notifications tab, but touching the shortcut in the HC notification tray causes a FC.
  • Once when I launched the app it won't load any of my Facebook data. Forcing a refresh didn't help either. I removed my FB account and re-added it and this seemed to fix it. Haven't had the issue since, so it might have been a one off glitch.

I'm running Prime 1.4 with a Clemsyn kernel on an Asus TF101. Once again, great app, hope you keep developing it!

It is Honeycomb only.

Some issues:

- In reading an article, only 20 or so of the latest comments could be seen. If, say, there's a topic with more than fifty comments, just half of those are available.

- Pressing the notification does not take me to the corresponding article or update, only to the app in its most recent state.

Good App, but until there's a chat option, it's useless for me...Maybe you can add also the new videochat...

I really like the app, however, for it to be the best, this is an issue of needing to have farmville. I need to get my wife off my computer.

Make it so!

Every time I comment on or like a post, the news feed goes back to the top. I think it would be better if the news feeds stay put.

You could also put a favorites tab (like favorite friends).

Thank you for the app!

Also, I discovered that you can't share/upload a photo from the android gallery.
