Some important notes:-
  • To share and save image; You should give storage permission to app and, should have two folder TempImages and DCIM.
  • To share images and save images you should open images in full size in Facebook, without it context menu won't trigger save/share image option.

Not Too Far
Pretty nice and smooth app. I like the concept of having all 3 apps as slides in a single app. It would be nice if the FB Chat can take the login credentials from FB slide ... so I don't have to login twice.
Would be waiting for notifications to work. Excellent work OP. Thanks.

Well after you login in Facebook, just refresh the page of FBCHAT. It will login in that tab too.

Thanks for the feedback. I am glad that you liked it.

Suggestions:

1. Return to top button
2. Ability to delete FB Messenger messages
3. Remove auto-refresh when rotating phone (as also suggested by one of the users)
4. Pro version to remove ads

Thanks mate! The auto rotation bug will be fixed in the next update. And for development it was going on from about 1 month(seriously i worked only a week to get this up, a month was for testing and building stuff).

Thanks for the suggestions. I think to delete FB messages, i need to integrate fb sdk, which will increase the app size but i will look into it, and there will a quick update to solve auto rotation bug. And yes pro version will have no ads.

And THANKS GUYS, on the first day we hit 100 downloads and 60 active users.

App updated with autorotation bug fixed.
Just tried fb n fb chat. Twitter not checked.

Coming to the result I found 2 issues.

1) The page loading is slow. Its not my net speed issue I checked it.

2)In fb chat. When I click to open a conversation it shows like this (screenshot below)
ddf63c7970e37b086d0ff6738a0df4dc.jpg


My suggestion :

I don't use fb app, messenger and Twitter on my phn bcoz of more battery Consumption.
My suggestion is try to make it more battery friendly add some tweaks for less battery Consumption.

    Why would anybody pay you if they can create chrome shortcut to FB, Twitter or whatever webapp for free?
    That's a very valid argument! But, if you read few pages back people wanted an ads free version, so, i thought it would be good fun. That's what i thought while building this app at the first place "Why would anyone pay" , there was no plan to make money via this app without ads(i.e make it a paid app). The same argument can be applied for the very use of this app; when you have facebook and twitter app why would anyone use it? Still after 3 days of releasing it, there are 360 regular users of this app. Anyways, it's up to you, to make a purchase or not. but still i would say speak for yourself.

    FINALLY I CAN SEE NOTIFICATION ON MY APP.

    Need testers to test this, be aware that, there maybe FCs as it is very early stage.

    PM me if you are interested.
