5 great alternative Facebook apps for iPhone and Android (2016)
On the other hand, Facebook is a pretty popular social network – everyone and their dog has a profile, and it's very common that full conversations or hangout arrangements will be done via the Messenger chat, not to mention that all the pictures from last night's party are definitely going to be on there. So, it's not a service that we can just give up on lightly, which is why most users have a love/hate relationship with their Facebook app.
Is there no middle ground? Well, there is – with the amount of developers, there's about a hundred of alternate solutions out there. But don't worry, we fished out some of the best Facebook apps for you, so you don't have to – for both iOS and Android.
These are mostly “website wrappers” — since Facebook, naturally, doesn't have an API out for developers to make their full-fledged 3rd-party apps, the app makers have taken a different route. They create a browser-like app, which “re-dresses” the mobile version of the Facebook website to make it look like a dedicated app. Additionally, it can accept notifications from the website and can access Facebook chat, so you can get rid of that Messenger app, if it happens to annoy you as well.
