Hi,

Has anyone ever used the Facebook web app with an Android Smartphone and what did/do you think of it compared to the "normal" Facebook app?

Wow mobile site is amazing im gonna go back to that not sure youd need that app, just create a link to the mobile fb site an you can save the url to your home screen.
Does the app you've linked provide notifications?

Until the last month or so the facebook was utter tripe but it has improved a lot now and definitely shows promise. Not sure what problems you guys having, care to share?

since FB changed their android app the home page takes forever 'updating' sometimes missing a whole 24hrs. Facebook via Chrome works much better.

I found that the latest version of facebook android app is very heavy on my HTC Hero. My phone gets slow and hangs when using it. I think it had something to do with the app triggering the phone's GPS constantly. My phone even shut down randomly in normal use. So I deleted the app and my phone stopped crashing. I now just visit facebook through my browser on my phone with no problems. the mobile site is perfect so why use the app?

I used to use friendcaster but since the big update its been pretty stable.

For any users of HTC, I believe Sense interface has some sort of plug-in / connector that seems to have problems with the latest version of facebook app.
