FAQ/Notes/Troubleshooting:

"Connection Failed": usually due to email or password typed incorrectly. if you are positively sure you entered everything correctly then if you have special characters in your email or password replace them. only numbers, English letters and of course @ at the email allowed, also keep in mind that facebook passwords are case sensitive.

WM BUILDS 6.5.3 / 6.5.5 blank web pages: to fix the internal browser problem use the cab from this post

touch/x/iphone/lite.facebook.com: doesn't open the way you expect in the integrated browser, which is the same as explorer in wm6.1, so there is not point integrating it.

WAP: fb chat needs solid 3g/wifi/gprs internet connection. even if your operator allows some facebook features thru its wap proxy, not sure it will be enough to use chat feature of facebook

3G: some 3g issues were fixed since version 2.2.8, If you still can't connect over 3G, check the settings on: Start->Settings->Connections Tab->Connections->Advanced->Select Networks->Programs that automatically connect to the Internet should connect using.. You should choose your operator's internet connection and not its wap portal.

WM 2003 SE: Setup CAB will not work, unpack it and use standalone executable (fim.exe)

Smart Phones (Windows Mobile Standard with no touch screen): supported since version 2.2.7, if you have problems/comments/suggestions post them in this forum

Photo/Video Uploads: If you are having problems with photo or video uploading, update your .NETCF to 3.5

Good idea, that's all the functionality I need with m.facebook.com's functionality. I'll wait for QVGA, but thanks for sharing.

Edit: It works on QVGA! The only problems are: only the top half of profile pictures are shown, (1.02 beta fixes this) and it snaps back to the login screen when minimized. (1.02 beta fixes this) The scroll bar is also enormous, but it's very finger-friendly! (1.02 beta fixes this) Awesome, it's totally useable as-is. I haven't had any real issues yet. Great job, thanks!

QVGA Screenshot attached.

Edit 2: And long status messages are cut off on the right. (1.02 beta fixes this)
Edit 3: And when I hit menu>close, it says it had an unexpected error and needs to quit, which is kind of ironic. (1.02 beta fixes this)
Edit 4: It logged me out of facebook on my computer too, but that might be unavoidable.

Great work, works well and free of unnecessary bloat. the 1.02 beta fixes pretty-much any problems I had.

brooks.ev: thanks for the input, i will adapt it to QVGA soon. disconnecting other facebook sessions is unavoidable.

kokos1405: what keyboard are you using?

eboy44: on what device? let me know if you had better luck with version 1.01

Works great. Takes about 25-35 seconds to login and fetch friends. Is there a message to display when no friends are online or will it keep the same dialogue on the screen?

works

It takes a while to load, 30-40 sec, it works without a glitch later. Tested it on my tilt and GF's Omnia. Graphics are little bit screwy, waiting on a new qvga version. Otherwise great job, keep it up :)
