NOTE: to use this app, you'll need to choose to add a shortcut to your homescreen (just as you would with a widget), the app won't appear in the applications list. You'll need the official Facebook app (at least version 1.6)
Why should you be forced to navigate through tons of different activities in the official Facebook app, if all you want is to quickly go to your profile, to your pictures, to the wall of a friend of yours, to one of your friend's albums or just watch your latest notifications?
This app allows for the creation of quick shortcuts to specific pages of the official app on your homescreen: just add a new shortcut, choose what it should point to and you're done! You can choose among more than 15 different shortcuts, and more will follow (e.g., a picture of a specific friend).
This app is free: however, if you like the app you can support me by getting the "MB Notifications for Facebook" app from the market!
REALLY IMPORTANT: If you have any issue, things don't work as you expected or whatever else, please don't complain on the market since I have no way to help you out there: contact me in any of the following ways, I answer to everyone. The web page http://mikebannion.altervista.org/fbs.html contains useful information related to the application. For any issue not reported there, or if you just want to tell me what you think of the application, feel free to contact me at [email protected]
