    Tomorrow,

    I have a question. Yesterday I downloaded the new version of the Facebook app for the iPad. There's a difference with this new version that I don't understand. In the old version, any pictures that you uploaded to Facebook would show up on your newsfeed. But with the new version, that doesn't happen. Am I doing something wrong?

    I just posted a pic earlier to see what you meant. You're right, pics that you post or even your status shows up only on your newsfeed. I haven't tried to save a pic will try to do that next with a pic.


    Edit...I just tried to save a pic that a friend posted and that I am able to do. You have to open the pic to a separate page than save it.

    How do you open it somewhere else. Did not see that choice.

    Works on very very few pics. I also like to save sayings etc that are posted. Use to be able to save as photo and repost. Not now. Looks like it works on my pc.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    The updated Facebook app sucks. I look at my page and I have numerous photos of headless people. Any photo with captioning is unreadable. Looks like a browser is the only worthwhile way to get there on an iPad.

    Your'll all do know if it's free, it's not going to suit everyone's needs. I have been using Fera for Facebook and never looked back.

    To save a photo, hold your finger on it until you get the save option.

    Interesting, I hadn't heard of that app. My question is this, on my phone, I used to use Friendcaster Pro. I stopped because due to Facebook's privacy policy, I missed out on a lot of my friends posts. Does that happen with this app as well?

    Friendcaster still works for me on my iPad.. Doesn't make sense to remove the phone version, lol. I downloaded most of of the notable Facebook apps... Unfortunately.. The only ones I liked were FERA, Facely, and Mypad

    I just picked up Fara for the iPad. I think I'm going to like it.

    Cool, if you don't mind, please let me know if you are able to see all your friends status, or if some are missing due to Facebook's privacy policy.

    As far as your question, so far so good. I can see all of my friends posts on Facebook. The question I have for you is how do you add a comment to somebody else's post on the newsfeed?

    I just downloaded the free version of Fera to test out. To comment, you press on the status you want to comment on and it brings up several options.

    Compared to the recent update to the standard Facebook app, this is very, very slow. I find it kind of busy too. I don't know if you see improvement on that with the paid version or not. But, I do like that you can share status updates and links.

    I don't know for sure if I am going to keep it or not. Guess I will play with it for a few days and then decide.

    The new Facebook app just got a massive recode and I already found a few bugs. The most annoying one for me is how Facebook likes to compress pictures in messaging.

    You know, it really amazes me how crappy the Facebook app really is. And I'm talking about the one made by Facebook itself!
