Facebook pokes its way to the top of the App Store's free apps for the Apple iPhone

0. phoneArena 23 Dec 2012, 12:21 posted on

Facebook's Poke has grabbed the top spot at the Apple App Store with Google Maps pushed back to second and Google's YouTube app at number 5; Poke is a messaging app that allows someone to send you a message that disappears once your fingers leave the screen while Google Maps and YouTube are pretty mucxh self-explanatory...

Why don't you mind you're own business, and stop naging and complaining, that you're this and you're that! " what's you're problem....? Couldn't you retaliate any better? So what if he is? What's it to you? Are you a farmland user?

angry troll lol

please go rage somehwere else as your falling flat here. defending a known fanboy and someone who never misses a chance to slate the iphone and those that use it.

you have proven my point though you and those red thumbs only accept the pro android fanboys. but dare an apple user say a word against android and there swarmed on. windows user the same would happen

''Couldn't you retaliate any better?''

retaliate would need him to direct something at me, i was stating the fact he always bashes other os users and give those few good reasonable android users a bad name.

so take your own advice and ''Why don't you mind you're own business'' troll back to your bridge before the goats try to cross it

So if hes bashing Apple, why can't you defend Apple by giving negative things that Apple have? i don't see anything good or negative about Apple the masters in disguise bad fruit company.

Well they deserve it! Why don't you get it thro you're OAP brain, iv'e been reading posts on PA for the last 2years and all Android Fandroid users bash and insult Apple users, it's nothing new. Thete are no Apple defenders on PA vety few, and still they can't figure or have nothing to bash Android cause there's nothing wrong, unlike Apple. What has PA turned you into, i use to read you're posts 2. 3 months ago and you wasn't like that!

All android users bash iOS users ? Not all , just some hardcore extremist . I mean even if everyone is doing it , doesn't make it right , all platforms have pros and cons . I use android and iOS , how can you say that android have no cons ? Are you living in fantasy land ?

He's just trying to be reasonable , what people do on their smartphones is the same no matter what platform they are using although iOS users can't flash custom roms

nah mate your the joke, its just your a funny one

iOS users can and do enjoy there devices, whats it to you if they dont want android. there free to choice. and from your past posts there smarter then you as there not devoted to one os and trying to belittle others.

you and troll working together is so tragic, mainly as your comments are still that which comes from the mind of a angry little kid

There's nothing to enjoy on the iOs, it's just an App launcher, good for nothing useless, even SYMBIAN is way much better.

exactly, real tech people will want a taste of everything out there and enjoy all os's. especially as every os has its pro's and con's so using all means you get to see the benefits of each.

troll and that android fanboy just want the green thumbs and to think there better then others

God help you sir. A good alternative to having to resort to apple maps *shudder* is a paper map and a compass.
