iOS 6 brings deep Facebook integration

0. phoneArena 11 Jun 2012, 13:55 posted on

As it was predicted, Facebook integration is officially a feature of the new iOS 6, and Apple is surely sparing no effort to convince us how good the experience is. In fact, Apple claims that by interweaving the popular social network with its platform, iOS 6 will deliver "the best Facebook experience on a mobile device." Bold claim indeed...

OH Yes I can.. Apple is evil and tries to take credit for doing things others already have done. Like "Gee whiz we now have a sort of Facebook integration, that's still not quite as good or deep as WindowsPhone has since its inception or Android has now.. aren't we great and special.. " eh whatever.

Not really proper integration. Was hoping to see Facebook albums in the photos app... Maybe in 3012 when all other OS's are using holograms...

I doubt that because Andriod has all those features too, I can't understand why iOS is soo outdated when it comes to simple features...

WindowsPhone has had it since its creation as well, and its deeper and better now than Apples will be.

"ul creat"
That in itself is a joke. You're a retard, I can just put a Facebook widget on my home screen in Android and it does the same thing.

How do widgets mess up your phone with messiness if anything widgets clean up your phone. I guess you rather have hundreds of little non functioning blocks on your phone so you can fee like a 2 yr old playing with your boxes. One or two widgets thats actually tell you something and you can move around and customize how big or small and how many you want are better then a ton of little blocks sorry that just common sense even if you an apple fan. I wish apple would switch to having widgets but truth is there software and hardware can not handle it it would crash to much and eat up there battery

lol, I was able to do this on my Android ages ago.

Syncing contacts?
Upload from Gallery?

I could do all these on my Wildfire running Eclair!

I don't remember Google using it as a new feature. I guess that's what Apple does best, take something that's hardly a feature and promote it as a main feature.

it's okay but it's such an Apple-like update, this is something that should've come with iOS 4 or 5 but oh well. the App Store Integration is pretty nice.

I hope all 3 platforms (iOS. WP, Andro) have deep Facebook integration so we can have more friends.
However, i'm sure Windows Phone 8 is going to have something better than this, since the Microsoft already had Facebook integrated in WP.

Facebook inside Xperia fans will relate to this.

What has been basically in my Xperia Arc(Heck even my X10) is revolutionary now...Wow, just wow.

Yeah sure Xperia have facebook integration, sure it does.

What Google/Sony will do :
Get the Facebook app from Google play, pack it > ship it as bloatware.

Thats integration in android.

So, this is the new Facebook Phone...no wonder their stock is tanking. My Windows Phone which I hated had better integration with less Facebook.
