The app for Facebook has really never worked smoothly.. It tends to freeze; alerts and badges are usually late; and it takes a long time to upload videos and pictures. Is it just me or does anyone else seem to have that problem also?

The app is slow and buggy. The mobile facebook website is faster and more stable, so I prefer it for browsing and status updates. But I still keep the app installed for uploading pictures.

^^^ Hey Hey Hey. Good to see you pop up in a thread. Haven't seen you here in a while. Hope reasons for being away were good ones and that you have an appropriate note from mom.

Mine is the same. Always slow and it takes too long to open comments. Disappointing.

That and when you click on someone's status it takes you to your friends list or some other crap

Heh. Thanks, Patrick. I had a busy month and an awesome vacation in California. It's good to be back, though.

Ive always had problems with the app but thought it was just my phone or too much info on Facebook to load. I totally forgot about the mobile website, and it's usability in relation to the actual app, glad you mentioned it. I'm gonna try it for a while and see if it's better.

As far as I could remember, the app has always been poop. With every update, you hope that they managed to fix the lag and other annoyances... Sadly they seem to worsen with every update. You're not alone.

I would agree that the FB app isn't the greatest. It crashes, freezes and every other possible issue it has. But it is nice to have when you're not near a computer.

You would think that a multi-billion dollar company would be able to find someone that could put an app together that actually works... Then again, Zuckerberg himself stole the Facebook idea...
